Marshall Rosenberg, PhD


Compassionate Communication Monthly Gathering

We gather to explore a Nonviolent Communication theme  (for example: honest expression,  deep listening, self-connection). This usually includes doing an exercise or role play,  plus opportunities to reflect about ways the theme relates to our own life situations.  Each gathering concludes with expressions of gratitude.

  • First Saturday of every month, 1:00-3:00 pm
    •  Meeting Room 2, Homewood Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
    • 7101 Hamilton Avenue Pittsburgh PA 15208
