Embodied NVC foundation training – Dancing with Life, Greece POSTPONED

June 4 - 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

We meet in a small comfortable hotel, close to the beach, on the island of Aegina Greece, to learn the foundations of NVC and dance with life.  Nonviolent Communication can give us a new perspective on our lives. We reflect, learn, practice, and experience life together – this foundation training is unique – the intention is to make life more wonderful for us all!

June 4 @ 8:00 am - June 12 @ 5:00 pm

What will we do?

You will learn the basic foundations of NVC, working alone, in pairs in small groups, and as a whole group.

Breakfast is between 8.00 – 9.00

We meet for morning workshops at 9.30 am

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Understand the basic premise of NVC
  • Shift from judgemental thinking to connect with the essential needs which drive behaviour in any situation
  • Develop your empathic presence, listening, and understanding.
  • Communicate with your inner critic compassionately
  • Become familiar with The NVC Model – 4 elements and 3 modes of connection
  • Transform stuck situations of any description
  • Tune into the wisdom of the body
  • Be with conflict using a dialogue process to support you.
  • Express yourself honestly without insulting others.
  • Embrace compassion, mourning, gratitude, and celebration.

We use the dance floor processes to deepen NVC practice (created by Bridgette Belgrave and Gina Lawrie)

You will be invited to share some of your life situations, for the purpose of learning and practicing NVC. It is important that you take some time to consider which personal experiences, you are open to sharing, prior to joining.

Cultivating peace

We move and dance with an awareness of partnering the body, exploring patterns, and how we express ourselves through movement. Mindful movement and dance work progressively to support you at a cellular level.

The benefits include:

  • A reduction in stress levels;
  • Regulation of emotion.
  • Greater confidence and self-expression
  • Increased empathy and compassion
  • Feeling more comfortable in you own skin
  • Fun, enjoyment, pleasure and peace

The lunch is at 1.30 pm.

Afternoons are free for you to explore and enjoy the local area. Outings to places of interest can be organised.

There will be some activities offered in the evening.

Here are a few comments from previous participants:



“Combining NVC with movement and Dance has helped me express myself verbally as well as physically. It gave me the necessary understanding and empathy to connect with other people.  I have more confidence to be more outgoing and assertive in a positive manner” Patrick, Ireland

“Working closely with you, Tracy, throughout the week was a powerful experience. You gently and softly provided the tools that empowered me to open up and unlock the wisdom and knowledge that was always there. I feel I now know and understand (and love) myself more than ever. A real gift. Thank you.”Catherine, UK
