During this five-week workshop, you will learn to identify your feelings and gain insight through the therapeutic use of mindfulness and art.

Brain Injury Services will provide all art supplies and the book Say What You Mean: A Mindful Approach to Nonviolent Communication by Oren Jay Sofer. The workshop will introduce you to some of the fundamentals of nonviolent communication.

Workshop Topics:

  • Surfing the Waves – How to learn to stay with the various emotions that arise instead of becoming overwhelmed by them.
  • Second Arrow – We are in pain with what happens and then our reactions cause additional pain.
  • Needs and Feelings – How to recognize our needs using our feelings as our guide.
  • Give and Take – How to give and receive empathy and compassion.

Based on current recommendations of the CDC and local health officials, groups hosted by Brain Injury Services will meet via Zoom.   To receive a secure Zoom invitation, you must register to attend.
