Communities are a key part of our lives and primary sources for support, belonging and connection among other things. Each of us is certainly part of more than one community, such as family, workplace, interest groups, friends, and the natural living world. In order to thrive as individuals we need to make sure these communities are healthy and sustained. This may seem easy when things are smooth and harmonious, yet quickly becomes more challenging when the going gets tough. Then we need resilience.
In this webinar we will explore how you can contribute to building and maintaining resilience in the communities that matter to you. Topics covered:
– what a healthy community looks like
– the skills of empathy
– importance of vulnerability
– restoration, regeneration and resilience
How to participate?
The webinar is offered for free, within the 2019 – 2020 Erasmus Plus project “Construind poduri de dialog pentru coeziunea în comunitate”.
We invite you to register using the form below and save your place on Friday, 23 October, 19:00 – 21:00.
About the trainers:
Robyn Marie Bors Veraart
In my personal search for healing and sustainable systems, I am leaning into community on interspecies, interpersonal, intercultural and intergenerational levels. Theory and techniques offered through Transpersonal Psychology, NonViolent Communication (NVC), The Work that Reconnects (WTR) and Constellation Work provide the structural basis of my work with individuals, families and organisations.
Beyond my current professional roles as CNVC certified NVC trainer, member of the board of “Asociatia pentru Comunicare NonViolenta” and “Asociatia Provision Transylvania”, a learning center for NonViolence and AgroEcology, I am a member of a family, a homestead, a village community, as well as part of the design team of NonViolent Global Liberation, a self-organising group of people from around the world who are devoted to transitioning into human systems that support Choice, Togetherness and Flow for all of life.
I was born in UK and have lived in Eastern Europe since 1994 – in Poland and in Romania. In 2001 I came across Nonviolent Communication and immediately experienced its transformative approach to life, self and relationships. I have been an internationally Certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication since 2008 and, together with Monica Reu (my wife), run Romanian Association for Nonviolent Communication. I designed and developed ‘Extraordinary Relationships’ 6 month programme based on extensive experience working as a trainer and coach and I also regularly teach NVC internationally as a trainer on the 9 day International Intensive Training.
