We cover the basic foundations of NVC created by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg. It is highly recommended that you read ‘A Language for Life’ along with your participation in this course.

During our time together we contemplate mindsets and learn about the NVC key distinctions. For example: the difference between an observation and evaluation, and needs and strategies.

We practice listening and expressing ourselves in ways that are supportive of honouring and respecting of our own needs as well as those of others.

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

What is Nonviolent Communication?

Nonviolent communication is an awareness practice. It is a way of communicating mindfully; supporting us in connecting authentically with other human beings in everyday situations, even when it’s challenging.

We meet to consider:

4 August – What is Nonviolent Communication?

11 August – Empathy – What is it?

18 August  – Connecting with self 

25 August – The 4 Components of NVC – OFNR

 1 September – The 2 Parts of NVC – Expressing honestly, receiving empathetically

8 September – NVC Dialogue practice – appreciation and gratitude 

This is what some people share about the way NVC has enriched their lives.

This is what participants shared with me:

“I am so grateful for the opportunity in a session to work through a very traumatic conversation I had in my workplace which brought powerful revelation to me about myself and enabled me to connect with myself with compassion in a deeper way than I ever had done before. This has caused a seismic shift in the foundation of my identity resulting in more self-worth and self-compassion to enable me to connect deeper with empathy with those I love the most. Wow! I have been wanting to do an NVC course for a long time and this was the right time in my life when I was prepared and receptive to the incredible heart level healing it has brought me. As I continue on my NVC journey I am expectant and grateful for the increasing wholehearted connections that will flourish in my life, Lorraine, UK”

“The small group session was perfect to create a safe, open space to learn and practice NVC skills together. I have done various personal development training over the years, but for me NVC brings everything together clearly and as I apply these techniques, I can see the positive difference they make to me and others”  (Lyndsay McLean, UK)
