The Art of Dialogue


What is it that is going on sometimes between you and the people you love (your partner, family, children, friends...)?
 Why is it so difficult at times to love, cooperate, understand and communicate?


Weekend workshop in 'Nonviolent Communication (NVC)':

Intimate Relationships

With CNVC certified trainer and Mediator Yoram Mosenzon

24-26 April 2020, Iceland


NVC is the art of communication. It is a simple practical communication tool that radically transforms your relationship with yourself and others. It cultivates assertive honesty mixed with a deep quality of Empathy, and transforms conflicts into love and clarity: 


In this workshop we will focus on transforming ‘love killers’. Here’s a range of possible themes: 

  Demands: How to deal with ‘demand energy’ (of ourselves and of the people we love)? 

  Expectation/disappointment: What to do with all those expectations (spoken and even worth- the unspoken ones)? What to do with endless disappointments?

  Hurt: How to communicate our pains (when they come… And they come..) in a way that brings more closeness rather than distance to our connection? How to make sure we do not accumulate more and more hurt, until there is no way back…? How to enjoy the hurt of the other? And how to enjoy being with one another without overwhelming ourselves with endless processing of pain…?

   Judgment/Blame:  instead of using all our energies to show the other how they need to change (judging & Blaming)- how to take the power back to where I have influence? 

   Anger:  how to enjoy being angry? And how to enjoy the anger of the other? How to support each other to ‘live our emotions fully’?

→ Guilt: Seeing the surprising ways guilt kills love, and how to liberate ourselves from destructive dynamics that kills love? How to transform guilt, shame and obligations into a flow of a creativity?


And we will focus on learning:

 How to support both of us to be free? And why to want the other to be free?

 What really Love is? And how to nourish it? 

 How to become a team instead of enemies? What are the keys to intrinsic cooperation?

 love key: How to be fully me, while being with you? (as if I am not ‘me’, there is no one here to love you).

 What is the path of inclusion? And why to choose it?

 Loving conflict ≠ Avoiding conflicts
