Brown Bag Basics of NVC: 8 lunchtime meetings
May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
As a way to fit a little bit of NVC learning into our days sheltering in place, Kristin Masters is offering a Basics series over 2 weeks of lunchtimes online through Zoom. This class will meet Monday through Thursdays for two weeks starting June 8th from 12 noon-1:30pm, and will include a quieting, content teaching on the principles and practices of nonviolent communication (NVC) with time for dyads in breakout rooms, applications to real life situations and Q&A.
“Nonviolent Communication shows us a way of being very honest, without any criticism, insults, or put-downs, and without any intellectual diagnosis implying wrongness.”
~ Marshall Rosenberg
Nonviolent Communication has been called a language of the heart, a transformational process, and an amazing tool for improving relationships. People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.
If you are new to NVC, or attended an Introductory evening, or just want a refresher–this class is for you. In this four week hands-on, experiential course, you will learn the four components of Nonviolent Communication–observations, feelings, needs, requests in order to have both honest and empathic conversations. Each week, students will return and discuss how they used the skills, how they can increase their skills and make NVC a life practice.
Students are encouraged to read the book “Nonviolent Communication: Language of Life” during the course. Books can be purchased in advance from a bookstore, Amazon on line or at cnvc.org
