About the event

Presented by Morris H. Ervin and Barbra Esher

We can try not  to be angry but that never seems to go well. Our precious, powerful life  energy, wants to be seen and heard. Marshall Rosenberg said, “Killing  someone is a much too superficial way of expressing our anger.”

Another  layer to our interpersonal struggles is, who is allowed to express  anger in the society we live in, where there are often invisible Power  over/Power under systems of oppression unconsciously at work? Is there a  cost to expressing my anger and is it in our own best interest? Is  there a higher cost if we don’t?

At the end of this workshop, we  are hoping you will exclaim, “Yippee!!!” next time you notice you are  angry, as it’s your life energy, longing to be expressed.

More Information

This event occurs monthly on the third Sunday to support Nonviolent communication (NVC) understanding and practice.

We  welcome new participants at any level. It’s fun when a ‘newbie’ comes  and we, ‘newbies’ not so long ago, suddenly see that we’ve learned  something important we can pass on, at the same time deepening our  understanding of new contexts. If you're already skilled in NVC, we  would enjoy sharing support and companionship.

$$ info:  The requested fee is $20-$40 per person. Please don't let the cost keep you from coming. Click here if money is keeping you from attending. Sustainability is important to  us but contribution even more so, which we can't do unless you show up!  For more information call Barbra at 410 499 1986 or email (deleting  spaces): Qi of NVC

Barbra Esher, CNVC certified trainer

It’s easy to be present when life is pleasant and can be tough when times are challenging.

I  dream of a world in which we all have the capacity to stay connected  with ourselves and each other in the challenging times. I specialize in  untangling knots of pain, discovering the beauty locked inside of each  of us, and facilitating a free flow of life energy and interconnection.  Racism, addiction, and death have been my greatest teachers and favorite  topics for seminars.

Early in my son’s 10-year journey with  addiction, we were introduced to Nonviolent Communication (NVC). This  supported transforming our relationship from shame and blame to love and  acceptance. My capacity for saying “yes!” to life, exactly as it is,  has been deeply cultivated by a Nonviolent Communication and life-long  mindfulness practice.

My relationship with Zen master Thich Nhat  Hanh has animated my work in promoting peace, reconciliation, and social  justice. I have pursued my aspirations with zeal, accumulating more  than 1,000 hours of training all over the world in multiple modalities,  including 25 years’ experience in the healing arts of acupuncture,  shiatsu, and East Asian medicine.

I look forward to connecting with you.

"I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson; to  conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmuted into energy,  even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power that can  move the world."
