book cover artJoin Susan Lowell, tenleytowntaichi.com, on Tuesday, July 29 at 7 p.m. for "The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense: a Workshop" in the Large Conference Room.

Suzette Haden Elgin's books on The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense offer brilliant techniques for managing verbal aggression. As a T'ai Chi teacher, Susan Lowell has been delighted to find a verbal version of T'ai Chi's self-defense principles--always looking for the soft answer and never using force.

Using skills honed while getting her MA in education and kinesthetic learning, Susan developed an experiential primer of Suzette Haden Elgin's work. Participants in this workshop will leave this event armed with their own "cheat sheet" and a handy set of pocket cards that will serve as a reminder of the techniques learned.
