The Art of Dialogue

Courses and Workshops

Connecting2life is offering courses and workshops in NVC for all levels in Amsterdam, and workshops all around Europe/the world.

* IMPORTANT:  we wish for money to never be an obstacle to ANYONE for learning NVC. we are super open for a dialogue to figure out other ways of mutual contribution.

In Amsterdam we offer: Beginner, Intermediate and Advance courses, Connecting with Children (courses for parents), and a year long training.

Abroad we offer a large variety of workshops- from introductions to NVC, deepening skills and advance themes such as: ‘Connecting in conflict’, ‘Pain, anger, guilt and other dear friends’, ‘Radical Honesty’, ‘Self connection and Empathy- The Art of Listening’, ‘Ask for the moon (the art of asking for what you want)', and more.
