Retreat Program Overview
**Delicious Vegetarian Meals Included in Program**

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday:
Rejuvenating Yoga: Move more deeply into contact with yourself and your body with Tanmayo’s wonderful Yoga, Meditation and Pranayama classes. Five rejuvenating Yoga classes are offered by Tanmayo during this retreat.

Thursday, Friday & Saturday
Embodied Compassionate Communication (ECC) also called Compassionate Communication or referred to as Nonviolent Communication (NVC):
Here you will enhance your communication skills by incorporating body awareness even more fully into your life. You will be able to understand both yourself and others better by reading your own body signals and those of others. Some of the body awareness work we will teach you includes Gestalt awareness work, Aikido centering movements, subtle breath-work and body reading. This will all be incorporated into your role-playing work using ECC.

This first class in Embodied Compassionate Communication will be followed by two other classes during the workshop and then two practice groups. The practice group is where you will be able to bring up specific challenges you may experience in your communication with others. This is done for concrete ways to transform your communication practices into something more empathic and ultimately successful.

Later classes, we will be incorporating traditional NVC work to enable you to:
• Practice self-empathy more deeply and more quickly
• Be able to make requests of others, and yourself, that are do-able and that you can trust
• Tune into your feelings and needs so that you know more clearly what you really want from yourself and others
• Communicate your desires in a way that can be more easily heard and understood
• Understand and empathize with the needs of others
• Assure others that you have heard and understood them
• Arrive at win-win agreements much more quickly by empathizing better with yourself and others.

Thursday, Friday & Saturday: Sept 19, 20 & 21
