Compassionate Parenting – Connecting Parents & Children

Welcome to a workshop space to help children understand their parents better and build deep connection with them, or to supporting parents/caregivers to work on their relationship with children. This workshop is meaningful for both parents as well as children.

30 & 31 July 2016.
10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

VENUE: Uday Waldorf Inspired School of Jaipur,, 3 Shiv Marg, Madrampura, Civil Lines, Near Civil Lines Metro Station, Jaipur 302006, India


The intention is to create a world where children/young adults and parents/caregivers hold relationships of strong trust and friendship with each other through their ways of communication.

The workshop is inspired by the works of Marshall B Rosenberg on Nonviolent Communication(NVC) , facilitated by Shammi Nanda and supported by Kunal, Uditima and Bhushan.

Can we aspire to a world where children/ young adults and parents experience strong trust and friendship with each other? Where both enjoy sharing the celebrations from their life, and feel safe sharing their challenges too. Where either the child or the parent feel safe to say ‘No’ when an agreement does not serve them, and they are curious to hear the beautiful needs behind their ‘No’. Where the family members can have open and deep conversations even while holding different worldviews. Or, even when things go wrong and there is deep hurt or pain, they are able to listen to each other and work towards restoration – Welcome to this workshop in Jaipur where we will explore this and many more questions and find ways to live with compassion in very concrete and real ways with Nonviolent Communication(NVC).

NVC can support us in creating a world where we can express genuinely while holding care for other people, in a language devoid of any blame or shame. It connects us to a deeper spirituality of universal oneness and give us tools and techniques to live that consciousness in our day to day life.
