About The Event
Nonviolent communication is an approach that looks to move past the defensiveness that so often divides us to a place of connection where we can share our feelings and needs and be open with each other on how we would like those needs to be met. The purpose of this workshop is to learn a way of communication that can assist in our ability to listen and share with one another. It's a form of communication that seeks to move from domination to connection. This is useful in deescalation, support relationships and personal relationships.
This workshop is aimed at volunteers, helping professionals, and anyone looking for a different way to communicate.
- Familiarize ourselves with the history and structure of Nonviolent Communication.
- Identify types of communication that lead to defensiveness and disconnection.
- Be able to identify the difference between observation and evaluation.

- Be able to identify our needs and the needs of others in connection to feelings.
- Be able to hear and make requests in connection to needs.

Gift economics is a different way of interacting with money and understanding what something is “worth.” In a Gift model, goods and services are not sold as they are in a market model of economics. Rather, they are given freely with no requirement of an exchange. We believe that the lessons and teachings we give and receive in our workshops are priceless.
At the same time, we do have needs as an organization operating within the current economic and social structures. Therefore, all participants in our community workshops are offered an opportunity to support our work. No one is required to give, and no amount is considered too small or too large.
