CT - New Haven County (SW) Chapter

Event: Monthly Gathering: How to Have Difficult Conversations

December 15, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

On December 15 at 7:30 p.m., join the New Haven County chapter of Holistic Moms Network as they virtually host a powerful and productive discussion that could be helpful during these unprecedented times. Author, speaker and fear strategist Nancy Burger will speak about five steps that can help facilitate uncomfortable or contention conversations: unpack the rear; fear fact versus fear fiction; do your job; don’t be sorry; and say it, then wait.
Speaking up can be scary. The simple act of saying “no” can trigger a list of fears that run the gamut from judgement and retribution to hostility, ugly social media rants and everything in between. What fear prevents you from speaking your truth? What would it feel like if you could unpack the fear and learn from it so you can lean into your courageous self, decline invitations, and have conversations with kindness and honesty?
Nancy Burger (nancyrburger.com) is an author, speaker, and facilitator who helps people embrace and better understand their fears as they build a path toward courageous living. Drawing on personal life experience and years of research in the areas of cognitive behavior, behavioral finance and neuroscience, Nancy offers provocative and engaging talks and workshops that elevate the conversation around how fear affects our lives and how we can change our relationship with this complex emotion.

The mission of Holistic Moms Network, a nonprofit support and discussion network, is to connect parents who are interested in holistic health and green living. It welcomes people wherever they are on their own holistic path in an environment that does not judge. The monthly meetings, open to the public, are the third Tuesday of each month. Children are welcome (quiet area set up in back of the meeting room with a babysitter); the YMCA also has a free child watch room for those attending our meeting.
