In this talk, Clarice L. Belcher introduces the basic ideas in Nonviolent Communication and explores how it can be applied to our daily lives.

For those who resonate with this, Clarice will offer a three-hour workshop on Saturday, September 14, from 10am to 1pm for deeper exploration. Materials will be supplied. There will be no charge for either session. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO RSVP for her workshop. Clarice needs to know how many are coming, so there will be enough materials.

Here’s a summary of her Sunday talk:

In these challenging times, when individuals feel frustrations at work and at home, communication can feel alienating and angering, and we risk feeling stuck in an endless loop of dialogues that are less than satisfying and certainly not peaceful. Some individuals will shut down as a result and disappear while others will increase their presence by bringing in loud and noisy language.

In his seminal work, Nonviolent Communication, Marshall Rosenberg shares how we can bring our best selves to the table, how we can stay connected to what is alive in us and in others, and how we can invoke connection in dialogue rather than dissension. Nonviolent Communication explores the ways in which we are violent in our conversations with others and offers a better way — a middle way — of expressing what is alive in us and in others.

Through Marshall’s unique approach to effective communication, we see how to:

  • Create an environment where differences can be safely expressed.
  • Address tensions without making anyone wrong.
  • Hear the real issue beneath an angry remark.
  • Generate meaningful dialogue where everyone feels heard and understood.
  • Hear the yes behind the no.
  • Cultivate a practice that keeps us connected to the best in ourselves.

Clarice’s experience with Nonviolent Communication began in 2001. In 2003 and in 2005, Marshall Rosenberg came to Atlanta, offering, respectively, a five-day workshop and a 10-day international intensive, both of which Clarice attended. Since then, Clarice has been practicing the principles of nonviolent communication, offering workshops and practice groups for others interested in the work.

Note: There is silent meditation in the Chapel from 10:30-11am, before each Sunday’s talk. After the talk, devotees and friends meet in the Monastery from noon to 1:30pm, for tea, coffee, snacks and a continuation of our spiritual fellowship.
