Interactive Workshop: Creating Peace Through Conversation - Feb. 4
------------------------------------------
Sunday, February 4, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
First Parish Church, 349 Boston Post Road, Weston.
Fee: $45

Peace on a local and global scale flows from the many expressions of
justice, equity and compassion each of us communicates in conversation
every day. Develop your non-confrontational communication skills and
become a more effective instrument for peace in your home, your
community and your world.

Workshop facilitator, Leslie Becknell (ANTS student), trains and
coaches leaders. She draws on broad corporate and seminary experience
as well as her deep understanding of personal development to help
individuals learn to engender peace throughout their interactions.

The workshop will draw from Speak Peace in a World of Conflict by
Marshall Rosenberg. You will gain fresh communication skills enabling
you to defuse emotionally charged situations, reduce conflict at home or
work, and help stay calm under stress.

To register call 781-893-7798 or email journeys@firstparishweston.org
