Lifespan will be offering a class on Compassionate Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication) this Fall, and I will be facilitating it.  We did this introductory course six years ago; periodically it helps to repeat it.  This is especially true when our country and world seem so divided, and when the language that is used in public tends to promote incivility and even violence.  I find NVC helpful and  persuasive; in fact, it is, for me, a form of spiritual practice.

The course will begin on Monday, Oct. 16, from 6pm-7:30pm.  It is thirteen weeks long and will end on Jan. 8.  Each week covers a chapter in the book that we will be reading, Nonviolent Communication, by Marshall Rosenberg.  I have four extra copies of the book if anyone wishes to borrow one.

I will be inviting both Ellsworth and Castine folk to join us, since our three congregations are part of the  Collaborative Ministry Program we have created.
