Relieve Suffering, Promote Peacefulness at Unity Bay Area Houston

Nonviolent Communication™ (NVC), also known as Compassionate Communication, is a simple set of language and communication skills developed by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD that help to resolve confl icts, create harmony in relationships, and build lasting peace. With its focus on feelings and universal human needs, the practice of NVC stimulates deeper understanding of ourselves and others and provides a compassionate way to relate to one another.

Unity Bay Area Houston hosts a Compassionate Communication practice group every Monday night at 6:30 p.m. (love offering) at 1911 Highway 3 South in League City. The group is led by NVC Practitioner Karen Starz and is open to anyone; no prior experience with NVC is necessary. Because Compassionate Communication is a way of living in the world that relieves suffering and promotes peacefulness, both within oneself and between people, practicing the skills with a group of like-minded people helps make peacefulness the go-to response.

Unity Bay Area Houston is dedicated to supporting people in healing and transforming their lives through many avenues. In addition to their Sunday gathering at 10:30 a.m., they offer Spiritual Education courses, yoga, energy movement, meditation, Oneness Blessings, book study groups, and drum circles.
