Deep Inquiry, 3rd Fridays

Led by Kristin Masters & Desiree Banzhaf

Program sessions:    Oct 21, Nov 18

The Program formerly known as DPP-Dedicated Practicioner’s , now titled Deep Inquiry, is intended for graduates of the Integration Program and practitioners with similar in-depth experience. It acts as a place for us to gather in community, and draw on the collective community for insight, empathy, clarity and compassion.

We begin each session with gratitudes, then a wide quieting and check-in. We explore a topic as a collective inquiry, often accompanied by individual discovery. After our potluck, we move to emergent empathy and needs for support as they exist in the group. This part has been rich, magical, often leaving us again in gratitude at the end of our time together.

We’ll meet regularly as a group well versed with the mechanics and spirit of Nonviolent Communication to look at the deeper shifts involved in living and connecting from the place of our needs, shared or otherwise. Drawing on the work of Robert Gonzales, Miki Kashtan and others, we will explore empathy and honesty, working with what’s alive for the group, doing exercises and working smaller groups for more focused practice.

You are welcome to come to a single session, all, or a few. We just ask the you register and let us know you are coming. Please be sure to register individually for each session you will attending.

Reminder: There is a break for a potluck during each session. Please feel free to bring something to contribute.
