Words Matter: workshop based on NVC

Weekend of 5-6 September 2020, 10:00-17:00, Vogelmorn Bowling Club

“What you say next will change your world” (Marshall B. Rosenberg)

Words have power. The words we use to speak to ourselves can impact how we feel and respond. The words we use to others can influence our relationships and the ease with which we connect.

This workshop is based on Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and is suitable both for those who want to learn and those with experience who want to practice NVC.

Deep Ecology Day – Wellington: Facing Change Together

Sunday 22nd November, 10:00-17:30, Vogelmorn Bowling Club

We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time: It is a time of growing uncertainty, as climate catastrophe looms, the sixth mass extinction accelerates, and the wounds of inequality and inhumanity are laid bare. It is also a time of great possibility when creativity, courage, and collective action can change the political and ecological landscape for future generations. A time when many of us are seeking ways to reconnect to one another and to the living Earth, and to bring forth our particular gifts to contribute.
