“What I want in my life is compassion, a flow between myself and others based on a mutual giving from the heart.”
― Marshall B. Rosenberg, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life
Hi I'm Emma,
I would love to assist you in learning how to listen with compassion and meet your needs in the here and now.
"I am passionate about living and learning what it means to be human, in all its shapes and colours, and I have made it my life's mission to bring together all the shades of our humanity though understanding the collective wounds which underpin the structure of our being and influence the way that we think, act and relate to one another .
Through a variety of colourful life experiences, from working in schools as an artist and performer to the time I have spent intimately and personally exploring the hidden crevices of the sex industry, to living in creative communities and holding regular street art exhibitions. This is how I formed many of my questions regarding the way we communicate in our society today. I was challenged by the use of punishment and reward within the school system, good and bad, within the art world, and disconnect caused by the labels and judgments we use in our society.
Through my studies of “Non-violent Communication”, I became aware that the segregation of our behaviors and needs as either right or wrong is continually reflected and repeated in our adult life, relationships, family life and at work. This has become the hidden language of violence in our society and culture, which I believe we all have the ability to change through learning a language of compassion and nonviolence towards ourselves and each other".
