Compassionate communication

What is compassionate communication?

Compassionate communication, better known as Nonviolent communication, invites more consciousness of what is happening within ourselves and with others in order to have more choice. It allows to :
– be more connected at any time to our feelings and needs.
– be able to express them to someone else without judgments or criticisms.
– listen truly to someone else’s feelings and needs (instead of giving advices or bringing the conversation back to us).
– engage in difficult and challenging conversations as a way to strengthen our relationship.

« Nonviolent communication reminds us what we already instinctively know about how good it feels to authentically connect to another human being. » (The Center for Nonviolent Communication)

« Criticism, analysis, and insults are tragic expressions of unmet needs. »

Marshall Rosenberg

Next Workshop : October 13-14 in Nanaimo




Workshops for individuals or couples

  • 2 hours discovery workshop

This workshop is a small introduction to the potential of compassionate communication to transform all our relationships. Participants will discover:

– how to listen to someone we really care for.

– how to be aware of what is happening inside of us in order to have more choice.

– what is blocking the communication and how to express ourselves to create connection.

  • Two days introduction workshop

This two-day workshop offers an opportunity to discover compassionate communication in a non judgmental environment. Through this workshop, I invite participants to explore how to live more trust and authenticity in their relationships with themselves and others. Through practical exercises, they will learn how to trigger more understanding and collaboration in their life, using the three powers we have in any conversation:

1. The power to listen be present for myself in a compassionate way in order to connect with my inner resources.

2. The power to express myself with authenticity and responsibility in order to generate trust and collaboration.

3 The power to listen to others in order to hear what really matters to them and create a deep connection.

This 12 hours workshop can take the form of :
– A series of 6 workshops once a week, 2h / class OR
– Two full days from 9 – 5pm

Workshops for organizations

The success of any organization depends highly on the team’s ability to communicate clearly and constructively. Nonviolent communication can help your organization achieve its goals by improving human relationships. Workshops are designed in collaboration with the client in order to :

  • help team members to be more clear and efficient in their communications.
  • learn to address successfully challenging conversations and situations.
  • resolve conflicts by listening to the needs of everyone.
  • improve meetings by transforming never ending conversation in meaningful interactions.
  • co-create solutions that are precise and efficient.


« Our goal is to create a quality of empathic connection that allows everyone’s needs to be met. »
