Living from our head allows the our inner critics to run our lives. Their judgments can generate shame, guilt, anger, and even depression. Alternatively, living from our heart supports compassion, connection, love, and clarity about our needs.
Learn effective tools to support heart-based living and successfully navigate the “longest distance in the world” from your head to your heart by learning Heart-Based Communication (NVC).
Heart-Based Communication (NVC) teaches you how to:
- Reduce loneliness and increase connection to experience love and support
- Befriend your inner critics, to deepen compassion for self and others
- Express yourself clearly and authentically to eliminate regrets
- Identify choice points so you can respond rather than react
Release anger, shame, guilt, depression and overwhelm to increase self-esteem, confidence and effectiveness
- Learn to listen in ways that increase intimacy & meet your needs
Make decisions with ease and grace because you are self-connected

Testimonials for this workshop
I attended Terri Moon’s Introduction to Nonviolent Communication Workshop in March. My intention for participating in the workshop was to be more kind in my interactions with others, so I would experience less shame.
During the role-play section of the evening, I realized that my Mother told me as a child that I was “useless and worthless”. I experienced self-compassion as I realized that I had felt shame when she said this because I needed love and acceptance from my Mother.
I also realized that my mother’s said these comments to me because she was concerned and wanted to support my success in the world.
Since the training, I no longer tell my son that he is “useless”, a habit I passed down from my Mother. This change happened easily and I celebrate having choice about how I express myself. I’m now living in alignment with my value for kindness and experiencing less shame in my interactions with others as a result.

Everyone seemed to relate to my situation being used (for the example).”Diane Marie, Santa Rosa, CA
