Introduction to Nonviolent Communication

Friday 7 May 2021

16:00 – 19:30

Nonviolent Communication is a practical, learnable process that helps people put their attention on shared human values, which in turn connects us more deeply, more honestly, and more compassionately with ourselves and with others. When we increase our capacity to understand human needs, we significantly increase the options available to us in how we form our relationships, and how we navigate our lives.

This interactive presentation will introduce participants to the practice of Nonviolent Communication. If you’re curious about NVC and want to better understand what it is, and what it is not, in order to determine if this is a practice you wish to cultivate in your life, this is the presentation for you.

Developed by the international peace activist Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, Nonviolent Communication is taught around the world to support people to foster compassion, improve relationships, and resolve conflicts peacefully.

Nonviolent Communication is a practical and learnable way of attuning ourselves to the life-seeking understanding and expression within us, as well as with the life-seeking understanding and expression within others. The model supports practitioners to place their attention on shared human values, where people learn to connect more deeply, more honestly, and more compassionately with themselves and with others.

Cultivating this practice nurtures peace within ourselves which ripples out into the world through our relationships.
