Compassion in Action: Yoga of Communication – Cat McCarthy Intensive Focus

If everything you do, you do for a reason, what if you could understand your thoughts behind your actions? What if you could excavate the embedded need beneath your judgments? It just might begin to shift your awareness and cultivate compassion in how to interact with yourself and the surrounding world.

“Compassion in Action” is an innovative program that offers skills of adaptability through yoga and Compassionate Communication (CC). Inspired by the global teachings of Marshall Rosenberg’s Non-Violent Communication (NVC), Cat McCarthy facilitates an integrative approach to identify and reorganize habitual patterns of heart, mind, and body.

Yoga and CC both offer maps to help regulate the nervous system. The physical practice of asana shifts proprioception, while an empathy practice rewires perception via playful exercises. It’s a physical, mental, and emotional training that leads to more understanding, ease, and connection.

The methodology of CC is simple although not easy. It takes time to tone one’s empathy muscles, especially while maintaining compassion within our conditioned world of blame and shame.

Yoga of Communication Intensive Includes

In this training, facilitator Cat McCarthy will guide you through the terrain of “needs-based” consciousness. You will develop a new relationship with your feelings, learn to translate your judgments into values, and understand the motivation behind your habitual behavior. Exploring new tools of emotional intelligence, you can generate untapped neural pathways for empathy. Get ready to shift your perspective on a cellular level!
