In these weekly open group forum events, people share difficult situations from their personal, work, or community lives, and then I (John) offer coaching and role play demonstrations of difficult or healing conversation structures. All are welcome!
One of the main goals of the Reconciliation & Healing Conversations group experience is to demonstrate and spread the idea of an empathic structure in conversation that leads to connection, healing, wellbeing, cooperation and the emergence of new creative possibilities. For me empathic structure is about supports connection through both language and consciousness. The simple essence I see in empathic conversation structure is: taking turns speaking and listening in mindful awareness, focusing on understanding rather than agreement, and dropping down into connection with what we share in common — our human feelings, needs, and wants.
In these sessions, I demonstrate empathic structure in conversation — having difficult conversations in relationships when there are conflicting differences, and having healing conversations when there is emotional hurt and pain. Depending on the person's situation who I'm working with, I also offer other inner and outer conversation "maps" from my body of work. The power of these demonstrations provide valuable learning and inspiration for all attending.
All are invited to participate, and you are also welcome to just listen and witnessing without speaking if you choose. Please invite anyone who you think might be interested.
You are welcome to attend this event for free, and when you register you'll be given an option to give a financial contribution. Giving financially supports my ability to continue offering this work to the world. If it's your first time attending, you can give later if you wish.
This work comes out of the international work of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). For more information about John and the work see, https://johnkinyon.com.
