Nonviolent Communication and Mindfulness
Saturday, July 17, 2022 (on Zoom)
1:30 PM - 4:30 PM Pacific Time
Contact me for more information

Although mindfulness and meditation are not always taught in conjunction with Nonviolent Communication (NVC), I view the two practices as closely related. In this session, we'll explore the role that mindfulness can play in our practice of NVC and how mindful presence can help us to deepen our practices of listening, self-empathy, empathy, and self-expression.

Allyship in the Workplace
Offered monthly from August 2022 to May 2023 
8 AM-12 PM Pacific Time

Many organizations have taken action to bolster their profiles in the areas of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace. This course will give the participant the information and skills needed to help to support these efforts within your workplace. Participants will begin by building a vocabulary around diversity, equity, and inclusion. Participants will explore their own social identity and biases and learn how these can impact interpersonal interactions--consciously and unconsciously. Participants will also explore the common impulse to avoid or shut down difficult conversations regarding issues that impact marginalized communities, including but not limited to race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, language, and/or immigration status. Instead, participants will explore what it might look like if we chose to step into an allyship role and engage in them instead. This will include practicing ways of listening deeply and sharing one’s own beliefs based on core values and possible common ground (rather than on attacking the other’s position). And it will include exploring the mindfulness and self-awareness necessary to ground this practice and find one’s balance when they hear something painful or triggering. 

This is a private event. Contact me for more information.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be certified as a Reiki Master Level teacher.

Unpacking Microaggressions - Small Things, Big Impact
January 19, 2023 
4 PM-8 PM Pacific Time

This workshop will promote conscious competence regarding microaggressions, implicit bias, and talking about difference. We'll start by defining terminology including unpacking the various types of microaggressions. Participants will explore ways to interrupt microaggression discrimination in progress by developing scripts of what to say when they see or hear something and how to support the person at whom the microaggression was directed. Together we'll practice how to rephrase common microaggressions to say what you mean and not offend people when you speak. (Course by Sandra Cushnie.)

This is a private event. Contact me for more information.
