Compassion Course Practice Group

Starting June 22, 2023 at 6 pm ADT

The Compassion Course Practice Group is a facilitated opportunity to practice and implement that teachings of the one year course developed by Thom Bond. Participation in a practice group can accelerate your ability to discern feelings and needs which leads to better communication with yourself and others leading to a more wonderful life. 

The Compassion Course is a carefully created course to help individuals implement non-violent communication (NVC) compassionately at a personal level beginning with self-empathy. Thom was mentored personally by Marshall Rosenberg, founder of NVC. Out of his learnings came a book and weekly email series of lessons and practices to embody NVC. Individuals who sign up for the compassion course can also join a practice group to enhance their learning journey. You can sign up for The Compassion Course here and purchase the book here.

Participating in a practice group will give you added support and awareness as you navigate the course and build the layers of self-understanding. Your practice group is a safe place for your to ask questions to seek greater clarity on the practices and most importantly on your feelings and needs.

My practice group is held weekly on ZOOM on Thursdays at 6 pm Atlantic Time starting June 22, 2023.

How I choose to look at any situation will greatly affect whether I have the power to change it or make matters worse.”

~ Marshall Rosenberg
