Columbia, 9650 Basket Ring Rd, Columbia, MD 21045, USA

About the event

Anger  in particular is an emotion that takes practice.  If I am honest, this  morning, I was under resourced with very little sleep so when my partner  woke up in "Blame Barbra" mode I snapped back, which didn't help either  of us.  An hour and a half later, I asked for a redo which went way  better. Gosh how many years has this taken!

We will start with questions about our last meeting including:

*Becoming familiar with your own fear reaction- Name and own your feelings

*Noticing relationship- do you feel you are up, down, or equal?

*Space shifting- Move out of the way of people’s anger- don’t take it personally

*Scaffolding of self empathy

We  will be discussing the topic as a group and participating in smaller  dyads or triads. Please keep in mind that you are in choice at all  times. Let us know if you want to be in a small group based on one of  your identities or if you would prefer to journal on your own for any  reason.

Contact me here, deleting spaces Qi of NVC if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!

More Information

This event usually 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-$50 per person. Please don't let the cost keep you from coming. Contact  me if money is keeping you from attending. Sustainability is important  to me and contribution even more so, which I 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 and coaching. I love coaching and connecting around  any communication topics as well, such as challenges with relationships  and parenting.

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. Responding from that yes and love rather than old  trauma is my life-long practice, one day at a time, one breath at a  time, one heart at a time.

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  hundreds of thousands of hours of training all over the world in  multiple modalities, including 30 years’ experience in the healing arts  of acupuncture, shiatsu, and East Asian medicine.

I look forward to connecting with you.
