Shantigarbha (Seed of Peace), a certified NVC international trainer, will be offering campus and community events.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC), also called "Compassionate Communication," is a communication process whose purpose is to strengthen the ability to inspire compassion from others and to respond compassionately to others and to ourselves. Through its emphasis on deep listening, NVC fosters respect, attentiveness and empathy, and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart. PSU Community Education Director Linda Hammond said the public is invited to a free Introduction to NVC workshop Friday, November 15 at the Pease Public Library from 7 – 8:30 p.m.
"This course goes a long way toward addressing the violence, bullying and fear we are witnessing and experiencing throughout the world today," Hammond said. "This course offers a way forward teaching effective skills to all ages."
Following that free session, there are both beginner and intermediate workshops offered at Plymouth State over the next ten days, November 16-17 and November 23-24. These sessions are suitable for people who are interested in building a culture of peace and communicating across a globalized, diverse population.

FRANKLIN — The annual wreath sale to benefit Franklin VNA & Hospice is in progress and will go on through November 15. "This year, we are trying to be more environmentally aware and save some trees so we are encouraging people who have internet access to order online at our website www.vnafnh.org", Tryon explained. "The online store is very easy to use and uses PayPal for secure payments. Eliminating paper forms has also allowed us to expand the variety of items we can offer and, as an added bonus, there are 3 online items that can be shipped direct from the grower. Of course, phoning an order to me is always an option, as well. However, direct ship is not an option on phone orders."
As per previous years, orders will be delivered in time for Thanksgiving and will be available for pick-up on Tuesday, November 26 and Wednesday, November 27 at the Franklin VNA office.
Starting November 6 and for 6 Wednesdays thru December 18 (skipping the night before Thanksgiving), a free Hospice volunteer training will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wanda Belyea, Volunteer Training instructor, says for more information or to register for Hospice volunteer classes, contact Beth or Bruce at Franklin VNA & Hospice at 934-3454.
The VNA will present its annual musical concert for the benefit of its Hospice Program on November 10. This program, titled the "Gathering of Music", is held the second Sunday of November every year but the venue changes year-to-year. This year's program is being hosted by the First Baptist Church of Sanbornton, 17 Church Lane, Rte 127, Sanbornton.
Beth Rodd, coordinator of the event for the VNA, says "November is national Hospice month. The VNA of Franklin's Hospice program, along with Clayton Bushman on behalf of the Lakes Association of Churches, presents this program every November to support and to honor the Hospice program. This gathering also gives us the opportunity for a memorial service to remember our Hospice patients who have died over the past year."
The program begins at 3 p.m. and runs for about an hour and a half. Refreshments will be served at the end of the program and a free will donation in support of the Hospice program will be taken.
For more information on any of these programs or Franklin VNA in general, please call Nancy at 934-3454
