A Language of Life

NVC GiraffeIntroduction to Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

Friday 19th June 2015 (10.00 to 17.30)

Imagine you could communicate honestly and compassionately, even in situations you normally find difficult. Imagine you could build relationships based on a deep quality of connection that foster genuine co-operation and enjoyment.

Nonviolent Communication offers a way to achieve this.

In this introductory workshop you will learn how to:

  • speak from your heart without blame or criticism
  • understand your emotions and how to use them effectively
  • ask for what you want in ways more likely to get it
  • listen to others with genuine empathy
  • celebrate the power we all have to contribute to our shared lives together.

NVC was developed in the 1960’s by American psychologist, Dr. Marshall Rosenberg originally as a conflict resolution tool and since then as tool for self-awareness and improving interpersonal relationships. NVC sharpens our communication skills and offers a practical, easy to remember approach for living day to day in a compassionate and effective way.

NVC is easy to understand yet difficult to master as it involves breaking destructive patterns of communication learned throughout our lives.

The Workshop

  • Checking our intention when we communicate
