Compassionate Communication

Michael Murphy

This program will introduce participants to the practice of Compassionate Communication. Compassionate Communication combines being grounded in mindfulness with the language of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and the dynamic community building of the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP). Compassionate Communication applies mindfulness and the language of the heart to strengthen our core connection with ourselves and with others.

In this highly interactive seminar, we will discover how to build Beloved Community and transform conflict through empathically recovering our common ground. We can invite the expression of Transforming Presence in a safe and accepting space that is challenging, playful, and spiritually enlightening.

Our work is inspired by the Zulu term “Ubuntu” evoked by Nelson Mandela which literally means our shared “humanity” or “human nature.” In Kenya the term “Ubuntu” is identified with the African proverb: “I Am Because We Are. We Are Because I Am.”

Michael Murphy is the founder of the Center for Compassionate Communication in Nyack, NY. He is a seasoned facilitator with the Alternatives to Violence Project, Nonviolent Communication, Transformative Mediation and Mindfulness Practice. His passion is for Building Beloved Community through training Peace Ambassadors where we discover our “common unity” in “community.” For over 40 years he has provided workshops in diverse settings, including the community, schools, prisons and most recently Kenya.”
