Stay Sane in Crazy Times


Tuesday 14 April 2020

18:30 – 21:00 (Romania – UTC+3)


Do current world events stimulate confusion in you? Are you anxious and unclear about how you will cope with the situation? Are you having trouble keeping inner connection and being clear about what is best to do? Do you feel lonely and isolated working from home or being stuck in your house for days?

We are offering a 2.5-hours, practical, online workshop to support anyone who answered Yes to one or more of these questions. It is based on Nonviolent Communication and will introduce you to a Self-Connection Process, specifically designed to:
• Help you distinguish between reality and the stories created by your mind
• Harness your feelings as constructive feedback and energy for action
• Clarify what’s most important for you in any given situation
• Identify realistic action you can take.

What you will get from the workshop:
• Greater clarity about your inner state during this challenging period
• 3 practical tools you can use daily to sustain an empowering connection with yourself

You don’t need to know anything about Nonviolent Communication as we have designed it for everyone. If you already are familiar with NVC we are confident this workshop will bring some new ideas or perspectives.

Tuesday, 14th of April 2020, from 18:30 to 21:00 Romania time (16:30 to 19:00 CET).

Online, using Zoom. You will receive the link for the meeting via email, after signing up. You don’t need an account, just a computer, tablet or smartphone and an internet connection.

The workshop is interactive, with practical exercises for about 70% of the time and discussion for about 30% of the time. The maximum number of participants is 12, because we would like to be able to offer direct support to as many of you as possible.

We would like to receive money as it helps us sustain our work. We request you decide the exact amount at the end of the workshop – in the range €0 to €35 based on your financial situation and how much you believe the workshop has helped you. We want to stress that you are still welcome if you are not able to pay anything.
We will provide more information about how to pay at the end of the workshop.

The trainers:

Ian Peatey:

Ian first met Marshall in 2001 starting a personal transformation connecting with his deeper core and changing pretty much every aspect of his life. Originally from the UK, he currently lives in Bucharest, Romania where, together with his wife, he is building a thriving NVC community. He has been a Certified Trainer since 2008.

He is passionate about sharing NVC to build thriving and sustainable relationships in families and in organisations, drawing on his extensive experience as a parent (3 daughters) and a trainer and coach in the business world.

Octavian Istrate:

Octavian is from Iași and found about Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in 2010. He used it in his personal and professional life for a few years, and then in 2017 he started sharing it with others through courses, workshops and practice groups. Little by little, this passion grew and became his main professional activity. From January 2019 he is a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, USA.

His aim is to share the principles and tools of NVC to as many people as possible. This comes from a desire to contribute to a world in which we all have more understanding and compassion towards each other, more cooperation and ultimately more peace and harmony.

In his courses and workshops he approaches different themes, the most important of them being: self-connection and our relationship to ourselves, the integration of NVC in organizations and the mediation between two persons that are in a conflict.
