In these bi-weekly monthly events, colleague Seeley Roebuck and I John Kinyon briefly introduce core components of empathic communication, and then invite, of those attending, one or two people to do role plays with me of a difficult conversation or a healing conversation from their personal or professional lives, including social-political conversations.
There are two types of conversation maps that John demonstrates from his body of work -- a 3Chairs Process for Difficult Conversations and a Healing & Reconciliation process. These processes help us navigate from conflict to empathic understanding, healing and connection, and the emergence of cooperative possibilities and solutions.
Those who attend will have the opportunity to participate in one of the demonstrations, or just observe and afterwards share experiences and ask questions.
This work comes out of the international training program John co-created called Mediate Your Life (MYL), based in the work of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). For more information about John and his work see, https://johnkinyon.com/about. For more information about Seeley Roebuck see, https://www.seeleyroebuck.com.
These events happen on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month on the Zoom platform, from 12-1pm Pacific Time.
