 Deepening into Living Compassion:
a weekend workshop with Robert Gonzales
May 2 - 4, 2014 in Portland, Oregon

Join Robert Gonzales for a weekend exploration of Living Compassion. This work points  towards the spiritual dimensions of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). It has both a deeply inner, transformative aspect and an intensely practical, in-the-world application.


The focus of this workshop is to establish and cultivate an embodied consciousness of self-compassion and compassionate communication. The workshop will include: 


o      Practices to deepen self-compassion and unconditional self-acceptance.


o      Cultivating and dwelling in the Beauty of Needs -  

        understanding and awareness of how the qualities of the heart
        that we call needs live in us and are the key to living the  

        fullness of life.


o      Living and communicating from fullness, rather than deficiency.


As we deepen into self-compassion and the work of inner transformation occurs, we become more aware of blockages that keep us from acting in integrity with our deepest values. The work of Living Compassion provides an elegant map to transform these blockages into authentic, compassionate communication with others.    

Please join him for a weekend of transforming practices that enable us to live with compassion and an open heart.
