This will be the first part in a series designed to teach compassionate communication skills and give people a forum in which to practice. For six weeks we’ll meet on Sunday mornings at 11:00 to learn and practice. This first series will focus on the fundamental facilitation skills of reflective listening, clarifying, and drawing out. We’ll learn how to create a safe, clean, compassionate space for someone while they speak whatever is in their heart and mind, and how to support them in a centered way. I’ll recommend that people practice the skills we’ll be learning in between classes, but otherwise there will be no time commitment required other than the Sunday morning groups.
