I saw this video today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkUGS2Hj1i0
It's funny but the power of empathy it illustrates is priceless.
I am trained in two empathy practices, Nonviolent Communication (see www.nonviolentcommunication.com
) and Restorative Circles (see www.restorativecircles.de
I can teach NVC and facilitate Restorative Circle processes.
The Transition Ottawa group may want to consider setting up a Restorative system for itself as it grows so it has a process for having conflict that connects and grows relationships. I am totally willing to make a 1-hour presentation to the group as a place to start.
As far as NVC goes, I would be delighted to teach if and when the Transition Ottawa team thinks it might be useful to its growing.
Looking forward to meeting you all in person soon,
