Workshop Healthy cohabiting in quarantine

Are you struggling with yourself and others during this quarantine? Do you sometimes find it difficult to exist within the same four walls every single day? Are you missing the freedom of spatial mobility that you always took for granted? Is the quarantine revealing certain issues within yourself and your relationships with others that you do not exactly know how to deal with? 

Let’s discuss! 

It is not easy at all to share the same space with the same people for a long period of time, without pause. It requires a lot of communication, openness, patience and understanding for the co-existence to remain not only bearable, but rather enjoyable. 

My experience in community based living and my strong interest in non-violent communication have provided me with a wide range of tools and knowledge regarding co-existence with oneself and others. For this reason, I am hosting a workshop in which I share my experiences with all of those who are interested. Moreover, I will provide with a number of tips, pieces of advice and exercises in order to foster healthier co-existence during these uncertain times.
