September 13, 6:30pm - 8:30pm MDT
Empathy is what makes relationships what we treasure. To be “gotten,” to be listened to with a quality of non-judgmental presence and validation relaxes our hearts. In these times of competition, polarization, stress, and violence, who among us can live without empathy? Who among us doesn’t long for skills to be truly present to what is troubling another? —or ourselves? We will practice and learn together and strengthen our ability to connect heart to heart in a fun and interactive workshop based on a dynamic process called Nonviolent Communication.
Following the initial workshop, you will have the opportunity to join small groups to continue to learn & practice the art of empathy.
Facilitated by Bren Hardt, CNVC-certified trainer

QPR training

September 20, 2022 6:30- 8:30 PM MDT
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer - the 3 simple steps anyone (ages 15 & up) can learn to save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper individuals will learn to:
  • Recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • Know how to offer hope
  • Know how to get help and save a life
