The Practice of Peacemaking – Duvall, WA

January 27, 9:00 AM - January 28, 5:00 PM


Join us for a weekend learning and practicing the skills of the Peacemaker. In this experiential Compassionate Listening workshop, we will learn to listen deeply to others and experience intimate connections in our relationships. Participants will practice a powerful model of peace-building and conflict transformation that will allow you to connect to yourself and others compassionately, authentically, and effectively. You will leave the weekend with communication tools that can be applied immediately in a variety of real-life situations.

In this workshop you will:

  • Explore cutting-edge science on the crucial role the heart plays in connection
  • Learn to suspend judgement and listen in a way that creates bridges of connection
  • View conflict as an opportunity to further our understanding of each other, find common ground, and inspire creative solutions
  • Cultivate self-care tools and increase your personal resilience
  • Deepen your self-awareness and intuition

Join us for a weekend of Peacemaking and Compassionate Listening and foster a deeper connection to yourself and others.
