The Connection Practice (Part 1)
Social and Emotional Intelligence for All
Instructor: Ellen Synakowski
Friday 3-9pm & Saturday 9am-3pm
Co-sponsored by PMTI, this 12-hour social/emotional course is a synergy of elements from Nonviolent Communication and HeartMath. In Part 1, we focus on better understanding our own needs by being introduced to a simple and scientifically-proven method for building compassionate connection. With a HeartMath tool, we'll learn to bring our hearts and brains into sync. When combined, we experience the profound effects of empathy and insight.
