Bristol: How to survive Christmas -Transforming Anger Compassionately – weekend workshop in person

Anger is not the problem. It’s the thinking that’s going on in us when we’re angry that’s the problem.‘~ M. Rosenberg
Anger is a powerful emotion. If we understand that the root of our anger is our thinking, there is hope for dealing with it compassionatley. Can you imagine the power of transforming it?

About this Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Level Two Course

On this course you will practise skills learned in your Level One or Foundation Training, plus further developing understanding and skills in the area of anger, guilt, shame, and depression.

  • Learn how to express anger fully without blame, attack or threat.
  • Learn how to receive anger in ways that increase safety, respect and understanding.
  • Clarify your feelings and needs in challenging situations.
  • Extend skills and understanding with the “Anger, Guilt, Shame and Depression” Dance Floor. Dance Floors are spatial maps of the NVC process which we lay on the floor and walk through — hence Dance Floors.

The other Level Two courses we offer cover empathy and conflict.

Gift Culture

Gift Culture is a new paradigm that moves us away from making money a measurement of worth and value, towards focusing on the sustainability of the community as a whole. More about Gift Culture.

As part of experimenting with this kind of financial-co-responsibility, we ask the following:  

  1. When you apply, select the £135 booking fee. We ask that you treat this booking fee as non-refundable.
  2. At the end of the weekend, we will have a conversation about Gift Culture and invite you to make a further contribution to help us continue and expand our work. On the booking form, we will ask you to confirm that you are aware of this.
  3. To meet our costs and to ensure the sustainability of the event we are suggesting a total contribution in the range of £195 –£470 for a two day in-person workshop. If this would be a hardship for you, please do not let that stop you from attending, as we would love to have you there. Please contact us to talk about it.
