Workshop: Compassionate Communication

Understand the power of language, learn how to notice the sensate ques within your body, learn the different ways in which we process and express, and practice of re-framing yourself.

Sometimes people will speak over your conversation as you put yourself out there vunerably. Making you shut down, feeling raw and hurt and so far away from the connection you need in that moment. You feel like you are not being heard or understood.

Your not alone. Especially in this time of anxiety due to the safety measures of COVID19 quarantine and lock down.

Is there a way to express your vulnerability, fearful and stressful experiences and be heard with compassion and loving kindness? Yes, it is possible for everyone to learn how to communicate with an open heart and powerful presence.

Also, you may notice that you are not a very good listener and your friend/family member/partner gets upset with you in frustration.

Feeling less than because someone else is speaking over your story with advise that was not invited.

Finding yourself closing down when the person your sharing your emotional experience is trying to fix things instead of listening.

Do you want to understand when you are not being heard and why there is a confrontation or why you go quite or why you get up and leave feeling frustrated, angry and want to just sit in a corner by yourself and let the tears flow or hold them in with anger.

The Compassionate Communication Skills workshop will address the above experiences and concerns and questions. You will learn and understand the power of language. Learn how to notice the sensate and visual ques within your body to allow for an emotional expression. Bring insight to the different ways in which we process and express ourselves. Practice conscious compassionate communication skills with yourself and your fellow workshop attendees.

In the foundational Compassionate Communication Skills ONLINE LIVE WORKSHOP you will receive the foundational tools, the formula and the ability to re-pattern your language and tap into your heart’s emotional intelligence for a more profound connection with yourself and everyone in your life.

I look forward to guiding you on a journey to take back your power, awareness and amplify the power of love in your heart. – Viktoria, holistic intimacy and relationship coach.

The workshop is based on
1. Non-Violent Communication (NVC) created by Marshall Rosenberg
2. Compassionate Communication
3. Viktoria’s years of compassionate communication teaching methodology

Testimonials from past attendees …

  • “I loved the structure of the workshops. The instructor was well prepared, organized, and we were actively learning with all 5 senses from the beginning. I loved the openness of the other participants. I loved how calm and free of judgement the instructor was. I learned that by being more present with myself in the presence of my partner, I can experience so much more and give her so much more. I also was reminded how much we can experience in any activity by being present.”
  • “That we are all on our path and levels of enlightenment. We must respect our differences regardless of those levels and that eventually every rose will blossom, or something like that.”
  • “That my pleasure is important. Eye gazing is powerful. Movement/energy has effect/consequence. Breathing together is powerful. Being present is KEY.”
  • “The variety of ideas to use. I learned to savor the movement – techniques in general. The value of eye contact.”
  • “I liked the delivery method, and the realization that this can be applied to everything in life.”
