The Soft Answer

Verbal T'ai Chi for sociable self-defense

Our on-site presentations are designed to give everyone a basic working knowledge of effective techniques for developing their own Soft Answer skill set.
Each event is both theoretical and experiential, and features illustrative exercises and group participation to keep everyone engaged. We are used to facilitating diverse groups with different specific needs and considerations, so exciting, transformative discussions often spring up spontaneously. No two sessions are exactly alike.
Inservice sessions are available in the Washington, DC, Boston, MA nad East Coast US metropolitan areas, and may be scheduled by
contacting us.
We are a community-minded business with a mission of social change, and as such we continue to offer Soft Answer sessions to neighborhood groups and non-profit organizations at low or no cost as scheduling permits. Please
