Nonviolent Communication – Foundation
Saturday 25 to Sunday 26 January 10:00 – 17:00
This workshop introduces the principles and practices of Needs-based or Non-violent Communication (NbC /NVC), which invites us to consider a different way of talking to each other – and to ourselves. Instead of the subtle or obvious judging and critiquing we often engage in, we learn instead to pay more attention to our own deeper feelings and longings. We allow these to guide us to the human needs and values we all share despite our differences, and bring these to the forefront in our daily interactions. In this way we express ourselves in a way which stands a better chance of being heard, and we gain compassion and understanding for others by seeing what lies behind their actions.
I call it three-way because as well as listening to others with empathy and expressing ourselves openly, effective communication depends first of all on being able to connect with what is alive and meaningful in ourselves. I’ll present specific exercises and processes to support our presence in each of these three modes.
This practical and experiential weekend workshop is for you if you would like to deepen the quality of your connection with partners, work colleagues, family and friends, and of course with your own self. See feedback from previous workshop participants at www.therightword.info/feedback .
I highly recommend the residential option which will significantly increase your opportunities for absorbing the course material away from the distractions of everyday life, as well as for connecting with the other participants! Arriving on Friday evening will put you in a great place to make the most of the weekend.
£150 including lunches, £253 full board (B&B + Dinner), concessions available.
