February/March Events with Patrick Marsolek


Here's a short list of some upcoming events I have in February and March. I'm giving short, free lecture on Developing Intuition at the Library next Tuesday. This is in preparation for a class that I am also offering on Developing Intuition on two Saturdays in March.

I'm also offering a continuing Communication Class. This is for those of you who have had some experience with NVC or Compassionate Communication and would like to go deeper and get more practice applying these communication skills.

Lastly, remember that I'm also at the Jeannette Rankin Peace Center on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at noon for a communication practice group. No experience is necessary for these. Come and join us!

I hope to see you at some of these events!

Warm regards,





Free Introductory Lecture on Using your Intuition 

Intuition is a direct way of knowing that we can all learn to use in our lives.

February, 20th – 6:00 to 7:00 – Free!
Board meeting room – Missoula Public Library – 301 E. Main Street

Intuition is direct knowing. It is an extended human capacity that is commonly known and used but not acknowledged. You can learn to tap into your intuition as a kind of information gathering to compliment other ways of knowing and to help you make more informed choices. Patrick Marsolek will talk about practical intuition and guide participants in a simple intuitive exercise that can be used as a practice to develop your abilities.

This lecture is an introduction to a Two Week class Patrick will be offering on March 3rd and March 10th.  Read more about the class here.

This class is for those who have a basic understanding of the Compassionate Communication or Nonviolent Communication model and are wanting to gain a deeper understanding of this way of communicating and being in the world. There will be more hands-on practice, role-play and working with personal experiences in class, along with more homework opportunities.

Some of the possibilities for this class will include:

  • Facilitated Role-play
  • NVC Dance floors.
  • Different varieties of empathy.
  • Developing an empathy practice.
  • Finding your own 'street NVC'  – the language that fits you.

Trust yourself more and live your life more effectively.

Two Saturdays, March 10th and 17th
9:00 am to 2:00 pm each Saturday.
 Cost: $80 – Register Online here.
This class will offer a hands-on approach to accessing intuition more effectively in your life. You will learn practical techniques to focus your awareness and learn to discern between intuition and imagination. Techniques we will explore will include; calming and quieting the mind, setting an intention, opening the doors of perception, discerning between imagination and perception, expressing what you perceive, drawing, summarizing, and learning from feedback. Some of these tools are based on Remote Viewing protocols. You will experience many in-class exercises with the opportunity for weekly take-home practices.
