Bren Hardt – workshop facilitator and consultant

I have yearned for a Earth whose people honors and nurtures all the life upon it. I still use my own 1987 slogan: “The best gift we can give our children is a world without war and the skills to keep it that way.” Those skills, since attending a workshop in 2004 lead by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, are the connection skills of empathy, authentic expression, and deep awareness of our internal world of thoughts, feelings, needs and creative requests.

From 2005 to 2009 I studied NVC with many wonderful trainers including Jim and Jori Manske (RadicalCompassion.com) and Dr. Rosenberg. I became Texas’s first CNVC certified trainer in 2009. I also founded HoustonNVC.org, a non-profit and work with others to bring more NVC consciousness to Texas.

In November 2016, I was thrilled to be awarded a local Peacemaker award for my 37 years of peace education and advocacy by The Houston Peace & Justice Center.

Raising children is not an easy task! Most of us did not learn to communicate our thought, feelings, and fears at an early age. In this two-day interactive workshop, we will learn new ways to communicate with our children and deepen the parent-child connection. These sessions focus on:

  • Learning to identify feelings and needs in positive language that others can hear
  • Expressing feelings and needs with others
  • Mindful listening and speaking
  • Practicing self-compassion & being empathetic with others.

This is a TWO DAY event: Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 9:30 am-12:00 pm & Thursday, August 9th, 2018 9:30 am-12:00 pm
Snacks and curriculum will be provided. Parking is free!
