If you would like to find ways to improve your connection and enjoyment with the important people in your life, looking closely at your communication, with a compassionate eye, is one of the best approaches to achieving your goal.

Nonviolent communication (NVC) is an approach based on skills for empathetic and insightful expression and listening. NVC continues to be developed and shared by a global community as a way to achieve more positive results in personal, business and intergovernmental relationships and negotiations.

The speaker, David B. Alexander, is a practicing psychotherapist and Tai Chi Chuan master instructor. He enjoys sharing information that makes life easier and more rewarding for others. His topics include communication, Zen / Buddhism, and relationships.
