This Coronavirus pandemic is intense. Would you like to talk truth to someone? To listen to another’s? To share your experience? To be heard, to be seen, to connect and be connected to? This group will be informed by NVC (and only lightly coached, so is best suited for those with some NVC background), and will basically be an empathy circle, sharing our time and checking in on our hearts, bodies, minds, and souls. A free offering, donations appreciated. If it gets too big, I’ll start another one, and keep the circle size comfy. UPDATE (JAN. 2021): Now on WEDNESDAYS, 3:00-4:30 PM Pacific Time, on ZOOM. Email me to sign up or ask questions.


APPRECIATION From one of our members:

“I would be happy to let you and anyone else know how much I appreciate learning about NVC. Though NVC is a brand new concept for me, I am thrilled that the Empathy Support Circle group is satisfying my need for hope and safety.  I have met new and interesting people who have listened, and been respectful when I needed to cry.  I knew I was being heard, understood and accepted by their insightful ‘guesses’ about the feelings and needs I was able to present, although my manner was very clumsy, indeed!  🙂  I did not know what to expect, but was quickly reassured during the very first meeting.”

We’ll keep meeting until further notice, and are open to new members anytime. Donations to support my efforts are appreciated. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know!, 541-753-2255.
