Empathy Café

A MDNVC Community Event @ Drifter Coffee

Tuesday, July 16th 2019


Whether you are a seasoned NVC practitioner who has attended Metro Detroit Nonviolent Communication events before, or if you are completely new to NVC and are curious, come by, hangout, grab a coffee or tea beverage, and experience the magic of empathy! Together we will explore NVC empathy through games and optional partnered empathy exchange.

The practice of NVC empathy can bring more effectiveness and compassion to interpersonal relationships, relationships at home, at work, and to the broader community. This event will provide a chance to learn more about Nonviolent Communication, exchange empathy, and gather as a community.

The Art & Science of Getting Along

An Introduction to Nonviolent Communication

(Skipping the months of June & July, reconvening in August, specific date TBA)

Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to navigate conflict with more ease and compassion? Would you like to learn a new way of relating that has the potential to peacefully influence and transform your personal relationships, communities, and even the social systems that impact your world?

Join us to discover and explore a new generation of human connection and peacemaking skills known as “NVC” that’s changing the way we think about conflict, compassion, and our future. This informative, inspiring, and interactive talk will introduce us to a revolutionary way of thinking and speaking – a way of applying transformational ideas and sensibilities to real-life situations.

The evening starts with an interactive introduction followed by a comprehensive exercise and practice.

You’re invited to begin your journey to becoming a resource for peace in your life and community.

“Katie presented the information clearly, with many exercises for practice and integration, and suggestions for homework. The sessions flowed well. There was space to ask questions and discuss the material. Katie modeled the NVC process throughout.

I highly recommend this training. I am now more empathetic toward myself and others. I am present more often, with increased awareness of my feelings and needs.”
