This group is intended for those who have completed at least a year of practice with a beginner’s group or the equivalent. We assume knowledge of the basic principles, steps and parts of Nonviolent Communication, as well as practice applying these in your own life. Introductory material is not taught in this group.
[Ask Marilyn to edit]We use a variety of intermediate and advanced materials (books and exercises) by Robert Gonzales, Marshall Rosenberg and other trainers in this community of practice. Our intention is to prioritize the practice of our Nonviolent Communication skills using real-life situations brought by group members. At the moment we are spending the 1st Wednesdays on The Ongo Book by Catherine Cadden and Jesse Wien and 3rd Wednesdays on other practices.
There is no cost to attend, although modest donations are gratefully accepted to help offset the costs of our hosts who donate meeting spaces.
Notifications are sent via email announcing the topics for each practice group meeting, along with any recommended advance readings. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for any or all of the following practice groups, or if you have any questions, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
[Ask Marilyn to edit]Cancellation policy: If Madison schools or community events are cancelled due to weather, then our meeting is also cancelled. Mary Kay will send an email announcing this – usually on the day of the cancellation, so check your email for information. We occasionally cancel for other reasons as well, and you will be notified of these in advance.
