Non-Violent Communication Workshop with Rev. Jeff Jones

Do you want more compassion in your life and in our world? Rev. Jones, a twenty-year parish minister who has spoken at TBUUF will be conducting a 6-week workshop at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Hendersonville from Sept. 14 through Oct. 19, 6:30 P.M.-8:00 P.M in the Fellowship Hall. All too often in stressful situations we have habitual ways of speaking, thinking and acting that disconnect us from others as well as ourselves. Participants will learn to practice compassionate communication skills in pairs and in the group. To register for this workshop visit the Hendersonville UU website at uufhnc.org or contact Amy Landers at amy.h.landers@gmail.com (or text 505-453-4068).

If you would like to discuss the possibility of a workshop in our area please contact Sheila Nungesser at BarNun315@gmail.com or 625-3060.
