The M.K. Gandi Institute for Nonviolence will be leading a half-day workshop on Saturday March 28th from 12:00 to 4:00 pm.
During this workshop you will learn communication skills to make it easier for you to relate to family, friends, acquaintances, and even people who are radically different and to those with whom you may be in conflict.
Based on the philosophy of Nonviolent Communication, we’ll explore and practice empathy and reflective listening for situations and relationships where you may feel discouraged or stuck. We’ll also explore how self-awareness can be a tool for being more effective in your work or studies. This workshop will be interactive and not a lecture!
Please come prepared to be engaged and have fun. Lunch will be provided.
You must RSVP to email@example.com and provide a statement (250 words) on why you would like to participate, because spots are limited.
This workshop is sponsored by the Center for Intercultural Advancement.
Nowruz marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in Iranian calendar. It is celebrated on the day of the astronomical Northward equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day depending on where it is observed.
As well as being a Zoroastrian holiday and having significance amongst the Zoroastrian ancestors of modern Iranians, the same time is celebrated in parts of the South Asian sub-continent as the new year.
