Dangerous Assumptions Program

At the end of your rope?

Making assumptions can get us into trouble! This course will focus on three key assumptions we make in relating that are dangerous to connection and harmony. Using the model of Nonviolent Communication/Compassionate Communication and unique inquiry processes, you will learn how to shift out of relating from assumptions into relating in ways that create real understanding.


  • Tired of going round and round with misunderstandings?
  • Weary of having to be right?
  • Dreading the next power struggle?
  • Longing for clarity and authenticity?

Join us for a stimulating six weeks of learning and transforming your relationships and your dangerous assumptions! 

Meets Wednesday evenings 6-8pm Mountain time

 Week 1 ~ Impact of Assumptions on Relationships

 Week 2 ~ How to Shift Assumption to Real Understanding

 Week 3 ~ I am Right, and You are So Wrong!

 Week 4 ~ I Know What Your Intentions are, and They are Not Good!

 Week 5 ~ Of Course You Know What I mean, and I know what you mean!

Week 6 ~ Integration and Practice

Using the skills and principles of Nonviolent/Compassionate Communication and unique inquiry along with practice and application we will explore and transform assumptions that are dangerous to the health of relationships and compassionate connection.
