50+ Workshop: Connecting Across Differences

In this 8 week series, learn tools for finding common ground with anyone, anywhere, any time.

Weekly on Monday


In this 8 week session, Compassionate Communication offers tools for reaching across differences, increasing respect and hope, and reducing misunderstandings. In this series we will be using the book Connecting Across Differences by Jane Marantz Connor and Dian Killian.

We will explore:

  • Connecting with others
  • Freeing ourselves from labels that limit us
  • Expressing ourselves with power and care

Each week we will have a brief teaching, time for practice, and Q&A.

    $20 workshop fee. $16 book purchase. Scholarships and loaner books are available. Seating is limited and registration is required. Contact Gayle (info below) to register. Sponsored by GCC, Madison Senior Center, Monona Senior Center, NewBridge, and the National Center for Non-Violent Communication
