Our Next Presenter

Cat McCarthy leads Anusara’s Community Resiliency team with a focus on Compassionate Communication.

Sunday, June 12, 2022
USA Time Zones: 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, 6 p.m. Mountain, 5 p.m. Pacific
Presenter: Cat McCarthy, Experienced Certified Anusara Teacher
Topic: The Art & Science of Getting Along: Compassionate Communication Introduction

Conflict happens, so learn to navigate it well. By excavating what’s beneath any friction, you can focus on the deeper motivation and change the conversation to one of understanding. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) helps you to compassionately understand your habitual behavior and to translate your judgments.

Guided by the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga – Resilience Team Leader – Cat McCarthy, this introduction workshop introduces the key concepts of Compassionate Communication as a foundation upon which to build your practice off the mat.

You will acquire tools of emotional intelligence to help generate new neural pathways for empathy. With a relationship to your own feelings and needs, you can create stronger connection both inside and out.  

There will be a mix of playful partner/group exercises and discussion.  Along with your notebook/pen, please bring an open heart and a curious mind. Get ready to be surprised! 

With a recognition that we are called to serve the greater good of humanity, we make the connection that our personal individual growth leads to our expanded capacity to serve others. Together, we’ll explore ideas to find Grace and beauty in this moment as we enjoy community, connection, and collaboration.
