This list of resources is intended to supplement a class called Heartfelt Communication, offered at the 2017 Traditional Ways Gathering. Please let me know if any of the links are no longer working.
Skills for effective and authentic communication are critical to the social transformation that must occur for humans to transition from the Industrial Growth Society to a more Earth-centered way of living. Participants will learn about and have opportunities to practice skills drawn from Restorative Practices, Non-Violent Communication, and Joanna Macy’s The Work That Reconnects.
