It can allow us to move forward in a new way toward what we want in our lives. Dr. Herr will also share his work with Nonviolent Communication and Focusing and how the practice of focusing with positive experience relates to the NVC practice of embodying needs or values. There will be an experiential component to the presentation, including a guided group exercise and a demonstration with a volunteer.
