Communication can be some of our most powerful spellwork. When we move through conflicts, how we communicate, how we interact, how we tune into our feelings and needs, and how we present those feelings and needs to others can transform the outcome of situation.

Together we'll explore some of the core concepts of non-violent communication and how they can be worked with magical intent. How self-empathy and empathy for others help us access our feelings so we can speak honestly about them. How a well-crafted "I statement" moves your need and desire into the world. How to choose words that clearly communicate our feelings without triggering harm in others.

Acknowledging that during moments of conflict stress can be at its highest, we will also look at how contemplative practices can help ease our communications.
