NVC from the Inside Out:  Clarity, Compassion, and Power, in YOUR Voice


Full details can be viewed by clicking on the class title above.  NVC is a powerfully effective tool for improving the quality of our relationships with others and ourselves. Changing lifelong habits of speaking, listening, and especially thinking is no small feat. For most people, the process of learning NVC is plagued with awkwardness, frustration in the learner, and irritation in others. Many get bogged down in learning the tools of NVC (language, four step model, key distinctions, etc.).

Join us in this series designed support a graceful transition from old communication and thinking habits to new ones. Toward this end, we will learn and practice NVC "from the inside out." Rather than starting with the tools & techniques and then struggling for fluency, we will focus on helping you create and deepen clear awareness of the inner and outer realities with which you live. As these foundational clarities emerge, we will then help you to express them in ways that are natural, comfortable, and authentic for you. In the process, we will learn, try out, and integrate the many tools and insights of the NVC process, while avoiding the pitfall of turning the tools into rules.
