MAKING LIFE WONDERFUL- 8 weeks Online each Sunday starting Jan 10, 2021--with Bren Hardt, CNVC certified facilitator

              If you are like me, you are eager to...

  • know and follow your own heart, 

  • to discover a path to inner freedom,

  • to start creating a world that seeks to value and meet the needs of everyone including you.

   For me, living in tune with spirit is OPENING MY HEART to myself and others.  I warmly invite you to join me, Bren Hardt, CNVC certified trainer, each Sunday from January 10 to Feb. 28, 3pm to 5 CST.

     The book we will use as the backbone of our journey is "Nonviolent Communication, A Language of Life" by Marshall Rosenberg, whos dynamic awareness/communication process helps us  feel the magic of empathy, become a proponent of self-empathy, and understand how to bring presence to any situation for collaborative problem solving.

   This highly interactive learning community is perfect for the beginner, or a sound refresher for returning practitioners.

 While live attendance is preferred, sessions will be recorded and sent via email to those who sign up for the series.  


   The "requested" amount is $180 USD per participant for the 8 week series,  AND,  we, at HNVC, are committed to making this course available to EVERYONE  --so if the suggested donation is not feasible at this time, reply here to the facilitator to apply for a scholarship.

WHY tune into an EMPATHY CIRCLE?

Empathy is the glue of society.  It builds everything we cherish: trust, honesty, compassion, and cooperation.  Although hard-wired in our brains, practicing empathic listening, increases our skills.

During this Pandemic time and the stresses and tragedies we are facing, we need to be heard with respectful understanding more than ever.

If you long to deepen personal relationships, prevent mis-communication, connect with those a bit different from you, and increase positive social behavior that sustains us all, practice empathy.

EMPATHY CIRCLES support meaningful and constructive dialogue and each person feels heard to their satisfaction.   

Recent Workshops with Bren

March 9, 2019 I hosted a all day workshop called BUILDING SOLID RELATIONSHIPS at my Brenham home.  Photo of a few of the participants.

Bren’s presentation “Keep the Life Flowing” to our seniors group in Sugar Land was very effective and very helpful in learning new ways of building better relationships with people around us. Bren kept us all thinking and participating throughout the presentation which everyone enjoyed thoroughly . She inspired us and provided tools to apply in our daily life activities to connect to each other and identify the true needs of each other. Her message of how a non violent communication can help bring the real peace and love for all will stay with us for a long time.
