Speak Peace Training

  • Silver Wattle Quaker Centre 1063 Lake Road Bungendore, NSW, 2621 Australia (map)

Based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg’s Non Violent Communication, “Speak Peace” acknowledges our need for self connection and self compassion as people committed to peace in our troubled world. “It starts with me.” Starting with an introductory session on Friday night, the program will cover the language of disconnection; making clear observations instead of judgments and interpretations; how to express our true feelings instead of our thoughts; identifying needs instead of strategies; making requests instead of demands so that everyone’s needs, including our own can be met non-violently. The course will involve activities in small groups; work in large groups; demonstrations and role play.
