What is Nonviolent Communication?
Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing, and right-doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.
With Nonviolent Communication (NVC) we learn to hear our own deeper needs and those of others. Through its emphasis on deep listening—to ourselves as well as others—NVC helps us discover the depth of our own compassion. This language reveals the awareness that all human beings are only trying to honor universal values and needs, every minute, every day.
NVC can be seen as both a spiritual practice that helps us see our common humanity, using our power in a way that honors everyone’s needs, and a concrete set of skills which help us create life-serving families and communities.
The form is simple, yet powerfully transformative. This class will meet for four consecutive Mondays beginning Jan.13, 2020. No charge but donations gratefully accepted to sponsor future adult education events. Info on registration coming soon.
