Transforming Conflict
How do we view conflict? How do cultural, societal, and life experiences shape our view  of conflict?  How does our view of conflict shape how we respond to conflict?  This workshop covers the 5 approaches to conflict and how conflict can be used as an opportunity to transform us and those around us.

Emotional Intelligence
Emotions are a form of intelligence. Become friends with your emotions and develop the skills to understand the core needs underneath our emotions. Learn how to skillfully express negative emotions in a way that is authentic and does not harm others. Learn how critical timing and readiness is to effective communication and explore several time out strategies as well as yogic techniques for emotional self-regulation.

Non-Violent Communication
Learn how to use neutral and disarming language in communication. How we ask questions and frame issues is crucial to effective and skillful communication. Practice the art of open-ended questions and the art of re-framing.

Power, Assertiveness and Boundaries
Power imbalances are the reality of most relationships. Identify your sources of power and step into your personal power. Explore and identify societal, cultural, and personal obstacles that cause us to say ‘yes’ when we need to say no. Discover your core values and practice how to say no and respectfully assert yourself.

The Art of the Other
How do we get the other person to listen and understand? How do we deal with defensiveness and the triggers of other people? We will learn the art of the other and how to break down barriers so that respectful, two-way communication can take place.
