|New to Nonviolent Communication? Want to learn more?|
The Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication (ORNCC) wants to facilitate the coming together of NVC enthusiasts to meet, support, and inspire one another so we can belong to an NVC community that works together for a more collaborative and peaceful state.
With that goal in mind, ORNCC is sponsoring a picnic in Salem on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 10am to 4pm at the covered area in Minto-Brown Park.
The primary purpose of this picnic is to offer people in the Salem-area NVC community an opportunity to connect with each other. Others interested in NVC are also welcome at the picnic. ORNCC board members Gary Baran (Eugene), Bryn Hazell (Bend), and Mark Babson (Salem) plan to attend.
This will be our third picnic at Minto-Brown, a 1200 acre park with almost 20 miles of walking trails past ponds and sloughs along the west side of the Willamette River. In its first 2 years, we used Open Space technology, which enables the people who show up to determine the form and content of the meetings by “voting with their feet.”
What would you like to see this year?
Is there something you would like to offer at the picnic? Is there an offering you would hope to find there? What would be valuable to you, and might induce you to come?
Of particular interest to the planners of this event is the question, How can we build or strengthen NVC communities in Oregon?
Please respond to Mark Babson (email@example.com or 503-5697223).
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a communication process
developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg which creates a vision of
the world in which everyone's needs are met peacefully through
relationships guided by compassion. The Oregon Network for
Compassionate Communication (ORNCC) promotes the growth and
practice of NVC in Oregon and southwest Washington.
NVC can help to:
- Improve communication among family members of all ages.
- Create productive & cooperative ways of working among employees, staff & managers
- Translate wants & desires into requests that are clear, compassionate, direct & doable
- Cultivate a kinder, more authentic connection with yourself and others
- Re-establish trust and honesty in intimate relationships
