Compassion Camp 2021 using NVC with Steve Torma at Earthaven Ecovillage

(Transcript from video)

Steve:

Hey, folks..I really want to invite you to join us for compassion camp this summer, July 15 through 18  2021 at Earthaven Ecovillage.

If you haven’t heard of compassion camp before this is our third time doing it and it has some features to it that i just absolutely love.

One of the main features is that we gather as a teaching-learning community, where we invite what we want to share with each other and what we want to ask of each other. We invite this into what’s called open space technology process, where we learn. We become a learning teaching community.

The topics a lot of it is NVC based, but we also have a lot of other topics related to compassion social justice and the whole range of what it means to create a compassionate culture. There’s also a strong emphasis on community building and relational connection.

We have singing and movement, dance, story telling, a variety of different ways that we connect and celebrate and build community together and enjoying nature. Earthaven has so much beauty with all these other beings that we’re sharing here; the trees, the water, the crawling animals. There’s so much gorgeous trails and woods that it’s such a balm for the soul.

So for all of those reasons and many more… great local food especially that’s another great one.. really encourage you to come and join us this year at compassion camp 2021. Hope to see you there!
