Emotional Intelligence: Cultivating Compassion in Conflict

Use conflict resolution skills, non-violent communication principles, and yogic practices to manage, harness, and communicate emotions with clarity and compassion for yourself and others.This eight hour workshop explores myths and truths about emotions, summarizes the science behind emotional intelligence, and presents a somatic approach to conflict resolution. Learn breathing and yogic techniques to get out of mental narratives and dialogues and explore body-practices that honor the intelligence of emotions so that emotions can be communicated clearly, authentically, and in ways that build trust.

Be prepared to breath, move, communicate, and learn. Wear comfortable clothing and bring an open mind.
