Y.E.S. (Your Empowered Self©) for Individuals in Crisis & Transition

(Workshops for Couples or Individuals)

The Y.E.S. (Your Empowered Self©) for Life In Transition Workshop addresses the power of connecting mind-body-spirit through teachings, experiential exercises and by sharing our stories. Created within the Skills for Change philosophy, this workshop recognizes the need to acknowledge, process and make peace with past traumas in order to find a healthy path forward. An achievement that is essential to building greater resilience as well as allowing a deeper connection to others.

SFC Cooperative Communication –Mediation Skills I, II and Advanced

(Workshops for Couples or Individuals)

With SFC Cooperative Communicationis based on the model of Non-Violent Communications (NVC) pioneered by Marshall Rosenberg. Participants will learn to hear their own deeper needs and those of others, and to identify and clearly articulate what “is alive in us”. When we focus on clarifying what is being observed, felt, needed, and wanted, rather than on diagnosing and judging, we discover the depth of our own compassion. Through its emphasis on deep listening—to ourselves as well as others—NVC fosters respect, attentiveness and empathy, and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart. The form is simple, yet powerfully transformative in business as well as our personal relationships. NVC is a clear and effective model for communicating in a way that is cooperative conscious, and compassionate.
