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 @gmail.com if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!
Working with Anger

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 @gmail.com
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.
