Compassionate Communication is a skill we can learn, a proven science and art we can practice. It’s one of the most important things we can bring to any situation, that will get us a lot more of what we want, and everything we really need. In intimate relationships, business, community, and even with adversaries, it’s a key to transforming pain and breakdowns in relating, and feeling empowered and fulfilled. It also makes it possible for us to build bridges not walls, and be the change we want to see in the world.
This workshop gets us practicing core skills and foundations of Compassionate Communication, which originated with decades of brilliant work by Marshall Rosenberg as Non-Violent Communication, further developed by a number of others. I was first introduced to this work in the 1980’s, and have studied and taught it ever since. I’ve also put it to the test in the fires of breakdown with hundereds of people in couples counseling, restorative justice, and interventions I have led and participated in. This is simply what works. Combined with my unique insights into trauma and triggers, I’m very excited about adding this work back into my repertoire. It’s just as much an essential foundation of Tantra and work on Awakening as it is in every other type of relating. In fact I believe it may be the most important spiritual practice we can learn, much moreso than any dogmas or energetic calistenics, and we will be surprised at how much this accellerates our living experience of what we most deeply long for.
In Language of Love we explore:
☸The difference between “old paradigm” and “new paradigm” conflict.
☸The elements of a safe container for compassionate dialogue.
☸ What is Empathy, and how to practice it.
☸ How can we get past our stories to connect with feelings and needs?
☸ Information gathering as essential mental & emotional hygine.
☸ The magic of appreciations.
☸ Creating more of what we DO want.
Join us for this deep and lightly held inner work which is a crucial foundation for relationships that meet our needs and keep us feeling happy…

“I felt safe and seen, and overall the quality of what David shared was high. David comes truly from his heart, things become light around him. David knows how to shift pain to love and acceptance, like no other. A man who knows the heart of women and men who long to turn to love. Your openness and wisdom, your genuine love and interest…Thank you David”
“I was pleased with the content portion and placing personal responsibility on each individual for her or his own pleasure and Self Awareness. I was also extremely pleased to watch the conflict management skills and Loving quality that David brought to the Sacred circle. David is an excellent facilitator. His calming Presence and open dialogue make it a fun experience and easy to participate freely.”
“Without a doubt David Imiri came into my life and assisted myself as well as my partner through some very crucial transitions. I believe that without his loving presence we would not be where we are today. I believe firmly in coaching as a catalyst for transformation in oneself and one’s relationships. David Imiri is an excellent catalyst. I highly recommend him. Much love.”
“This was an amazing transformational workshop for my personal growth! I’m willing and look forward to discussing what triggers me, what my response is and what might support me for change to create what I do desire! Yes!”
