Judith Hanson Lasater - What We Say Matters: Practicing Nonviolent Communication

Tuesday, February 10, 2015 - 7:00pm

Co-Sponsored by Bay Area Nonviolent Communication

For yoga teacher Judith Hanson Lasater and mediator Ike K. Lasater, language is a spiritual practice based on giving and receiving with compassion. In What We Say Matters: Practicing Nonviolent Communication, they offer new and nurturing ways of communicating. Long-term students of yoga and Buddhism, the authors here blend the yoga principle of satya (truth) and the Buddhist precept of right speech with Marshall Rosenberg's groundbreaking techniques of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in a fresh formula for promoting peace at home, at work, and in the world. The authors offer practical exercises to help readers in any field learn to diffuse anger, make requests rather than demands or assign blame, understand the difference between feelings and needs, recognize how they strategize to get needs met, choose connection over conflict, and extend empathy to themselves and others.

Judith Hanson Lasater has taught yoga since 1971. In addition to co-founding Yoga Journal magazine, Judith has written eight books on yoga.

Judith will also be holding a weekend workshop August 14-16 at Yoga Tree, What We Say Matters: Communicating with Students, Family & Friends; Create Connection & Maintain Connection. Details can be found by clicking here.
