Dancing With Your Jackals...Last Dance

This series is back again, by popular demand. If you were unable to make it to either of the previous sessions, consider joining us for this Last Dance.
Recordings will be sent to registrants.


In times of uncertainty, repetitive thoughts and judgments can lead us to opinions of right and wrong and some strong feelings one way or another. We might be left feeling disconnected from others. What we really could be disconnected from, however, are our longings, desires, hopes, and dreams. 

In my experience, Nonviolent Communication (NVC) doesn't ask me to ignore, squash, or judge my judgment. The process of NVC gives me a playful and fun avenue in which to entertain my evaluations, judgments, and opinions - it is called jackal language. These jackals, when engaged, connect us to what is important to us and to the people who stimulate our judgments.

I invite you to bring your Jackals to my next series: a Jackal Dance where everyone is invited. There is no need for a permission slip, to be self-conscious about your hemlines, or to leave your contempt at home. I will create an atmosphere, with your help, of trust and companionship. I hope you will take the ability with you to dance with your jackals and have compassion for your judgments. 

No level of NVC is necessary.

This final series will take place Saturdays from June 6th to June 20th, 10 am - 12 pm CDT

The requested contribution is $90 per participant.

There is tuition assistance available. Please reach out to info@houstonnvc.org to make a request before registering.
