Nonviolent Communication “Transforming Enemy Images
Weekend Workshop

Kina Beach Tasman
4 & 5 December 2021 (new dates)

This workshop offers a way of transforming challenging relationships and to open ourselves up to see the beauty in another. Paying attention to the key principle of “all we are ever doing is attempting to meet needs,” this process supports us to begin to connect with the needs within another even when the strategies we are seeing unfold in front of us are tragic. You will learn the skills of the Transforming Enemy Images Process to empathically connect to your needs & the needs of others in order to resolve conflict peacefully. 
This workshop is based on the work of Dr Marshall Rosenberg (founder of NVC).  
You will discover how to 
• Transform judgements 
• Transform relationships 
• Embody the skills of giving & receiving empathy • Connecting more deeply to your own needs • Give empathy in difficult situations.  
• Be more empowered.
Facilitated by Wayne Prince & Deb Hipperson. www.meditatinggiraffe.co.nz

Ruby Retreat

5-Day Non-Residential Retreat for those wanting freedom from addiction
Starting each first Friday of the month
The Wee Wellbeing Studio Ruby Bay / Mapua

This non-residential programme consists of a variety of different sessions/therapies aimed to impart tools for relapse prevention. We want everyone to be heard and accepted just as they are so they can grow into the true expression of themselves. 

Ruby Retreat is for those wanting freedom from addiction. Respecting that substance use disorders can range in severity and substance, our programme is broadly therapeutic and we think beneficial to all that may attend.

It is our understanding that most addictive patterns stem from trauma. Acknowledging this, we aim to create a safe space to uncover blocks that could impede recovery.
