Join Rachel in this interactive online workshop exploring the importance of vulnerability & honesty in dating and relationships. We'll look at what gets in the way of being completely honest and the impact of sharing and not sharing has on relationships. We'll jump in to some role play and learn tools to cultivate honesty and integrity in ourselves first.

"Being a part of this class has been a transformational journey! Learning to listen with compassion vs. judgement, has improved relationships in all areas of my life, including the one I have with myself!! Thank you, Jenny and Rachel, for offering the opportunity to delve deeper into honest, productive and civil communication. The safe, nurturing environment you provide, combined with your personal experience and training, make practicing the tools both useful and fun! I'm honored and excited to participate again!"
-Jan Casebolt

“ The material in this class was transformational for me in regards to communicating with others as well as my internal dialogue. Separating stimulus from response and taking responsibility for my actions has led to large improvements in my relationships. I really appreciate the framework of the material and the real tools it provides to become a better and more patient communicator.” Ryan

Both the teachers were very good and knowledgeable in all areas of NVC. This is an excellent course to take as it gives a fundamental idea on general communication and shows us area's where we can improve. I think this course is a must for most people who want to repair their relationship at work/personal life or who want to move ahead in life since communication is such an important portion of success.
