We are happy to welcome Anne Piotrowski and Suzanne McAllister PhD back as we had technical issues on Jan 28th. Some advocates for veganism get attention through aggressive, destructive or violent behavior. While they get headlines, they don’t often change other’s views. Yet a casual conversation can also be challenging when sharing the benefits of a vegan/plant-based lifestyle. How can you bridge the communication gap? Join us as vegan activist and certified counselor Anne Piotrowski will share how to shift the focus of vegan advocacy from conflict to connection by applying self-compassion, empathy, and nonviolent communication. You’ll learn: · How to apply non-violent communication · The importance of self-compassion that expands outward · Compassion as a practice that improves over time Here is the link for the workshop booklet https://www.canva.com/design/DAFZ8Y31… Anne Piotrowski is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a vegan activist, blogger, and co-founder of The PAUW Project, (Post-Animal-Use-World) with fellow activist, Suzanne McAllister, PhD.
