The Art of Dialogue


Living Compassion- The Living Energy of the Needs

Weekend workshop with Nadine Helm
30-31 March 2019, 10.00-17.00, Amsterdam


Robert Gonzales, Trainer for NVC (CNVC), has dedicated his life to living compassion. In his approach to NVC he emphasizes connection to the living, vibrant energy that needs carry and to cultivate a felt sense experience of their energy inside of us. I have learned with Robert since 2006 and the tools I received have benefited me deeply, particularly in moments of pain and disconnection.

During the weekend I would like to introduce you to the living energy of needs and help you develop concrete skills to transform obstacles to and connect with the beauty and fullness of needs by sharing:

   exercises to allow a felt experience of the fullness of needs vs. the lack; jackal vs. giraffe etc.

   a concrete NVC based process to add to your tool box for life

   as well as contemplative practices like meditation and inquiries (alone and in pairs) that engage the heart and the felt sense of the body and can be used and established as an ongoing meditation practice in your life in order to live needs-based

I would enjoy if you want to join me in this exploration. More detailed information is coming soon.
