Are you feeling hopeless about getting stuck in the same old arguments and would like a way out?

It’s painful to get caught in criticism, blame, and anger, and leave a conversation feeling lost about how to get understanding and resolution.

You can hold deep values about honesty and caring, and still find yourself in a battlefield of words.

Living and speaking from authenticity and peace is possible, and it doesn’t take years of therapy.

Mindful Compassionate Dialogue, a synergistic blend of Compassionate Communication (also called Nonviolent Communication (NVC)), Hakomi, and Mindful practice, provides clarity about why things don’t work and practical tools that naturally open the heart. Working from this new framework, relationships with yourself and others become easier and more fulfilling.

My name is LaShelle Lowe-Chardé. I have helped thousands of people gain the skills and understanding they need to create honest, caring relationships with partners, family, friends, and co-workers.
