Concepts and Links
A collection of concepts and organisations we align with.
Compassionate Communication is an approach to connecting with others by connecting to our commonly-held values and, with practice, increasingly both hearing and speaking from it.
We all long to be heard and understood. The capacity to draw out and listen empathically to what is longed for rather than what is being thought about opens up the possibility of a different quality of connection – and a different possibility in how we, ourselves, are seen and heard.
We at Surefoot strive to communicate in this way and hope to be able to introduce more people to this effective way of communication through advertising and promoting courses. Much of this work was defined by Marshall Rosenberg who regularly participates in peace negotiations world-wide.
