Growing Compassion: Building on Interdependence Telesummit Sept 2012

You’re invited to join us in a Win-Win-Win!
Dear Ones,You’ve probably heard we’re been working to retire BayNVC’s debt so we can move into the future with creativity, peace of mind and shared trust with you.

We experienced such energy and success with the Telesummit a few weeks ago, we decided to offer a special event; a month-long telesummit in September 20 Global Calls (20 noontime weekday calls in September).  Presenters from around the world will offer 20 1-hour conversations. Three of them will be in Hebrew, Spanish and French!

Click here to see all the exciting topics!

You’ll win because you’ll be learning and growing.  The trainers will win because a portion of the tuition will go toward their time.  BayNVC will win since a portion of the money will help in eliminating the debt.  Win-Win-Win!

Would you like to reconnect with that sense of excitement, community, and learning that you shared with hundreds of people around the world?

  • Opening Call: Practices for Opening our Hearts. Miki Kashtan will offer tips based on her decades of study and work with thousands of people.  Transforming Oppression
  • Zen Wisdom for Naturalizing your Practice: Are you interested in ways to actually practice NVC out in the world, with natural language? Coming from his perspective of Zen Buddhism, Jesse Wiens answers the question, “How can I get off the cushion and out into the world and make a difference?”
  • 9/11 “Enemy Image” Call: During conflict, we often lose connection with the other person and see them only as a villain. Lisa Montana shows how the Enemy Image Process offers a simple way to defuse this dynamic, get support, and open the door to solutions that meet everybody’s needs.Harnessing Anger
  • Calls offered in French, Spanish, and Hebrew – open to ALL. Marshall Rosenberg, PhD, author of Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, says about empathy, ”It’s not the words!” Practice “wordless empathy” by experiencing the humanity of a person who speaks a different language than you do. Experience a heart-to-heart, personal connection which transcends words!
