2:00 PM at Asheville Friends Meeting House
227 Edgewood Road, Asheville, NC
Presented by Jeff Jones
Most of us have some fairly habitual ways of responding to conflict, disagreement, or a comment that triggers us. What would it take to bring a different consciousness to these situations? Jeff Jones will offer key ideas to guide us in responding and reacting in a non-traditional way. Expect a lively discussion and even some disagreement as we together dig deep into what it means to live life with greater compassion consciousness. The ideas and suggestions Jeff will articulate are grounded in the key goals, assumptions, and objectives of Nonviolent Communication.
Jeff Jones, a Unitarian Universalist community minister, ordained in 1998, is a recent appointee to the Asheville Transit Committee, an advocate for public transportation and a Compassionate Communication instructor at UNC-Asheville OLLI. He served congregations in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and Marietta, Georgia, before moving to Asheville in June 2017.
Informal discussion and refreshments will follow the presentation. All are welcome.
