A Weekend Workshop on ‘The Family You Want’

Ike Lasater

Ike Lasater, co-founder of the training company Mediate Your Life, LLC, will present a weekend workshop entitled “The Family You Want: Build a Better Relationship with Your Parents, In-Laws, Adult Siblings, and Others in Your Chosen Tribe.” The workshop will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 16 and 17 at Smith College Conference Center, in Northampton.

Lasater, a specialist in non-violent communication (NVC) and habit change, trained with NVC founder Marshall Rosenberg and created the Mediate Your Life immersion program. His new weekend workshops are designed to accommodate busy people and those who are looking to sample what NVC mediation and habit change techniques can do for them.

“The motto of these workshops is ‘Fit a giant change into the small corners of your life,’” says Lasater. “Our weekend workshops teach people how to care for and contribute to each other’s well-being, even in tough situations, and present new ways to respond to conflict more effectively.”

Other upcoming workshops include “Getting Unstuck” and “How to Talk So Your Doctor Will Listen (and Everyone Gets Heard).” Each person who emails [email protected] by March 30 to vote for a favorite topic will be entered in a drawing for a free workshop.

Discounts on enrollment through March 9. Location: Smith College Conference Center, 51 College Ln., Northampton. For more information or to register, call 413-230-3250, email [email protected] or visit
