Non-Violent Compassionate Communication Skills Training
Meeting each second Thursday of the month from 10:00am to noon., Non-Violent Communication Skills Training will be held at the Peace Center. Group dates are: March 13 and April 10. Although ideal, attendance at all the meetings is not required. Come when you can. The group will be guided but will set its own agenda deciding whether to read, listen to CD’s on non-violent communication or find other means to hone our skills in bringing about more peace in the world. If you are interested in participating or wish to know more about these gatherings, either call Pauline Feltner at 313-392-9437 or email her at email@example.com.
