The Art of Dialogue

 

Weekend workshop in 'Nonviolent Communication' 

Radical Honesty

30 October - 01 November 2020
Zurich, Switzerland
With Yoram Mosenzon


The Dilemma of honesty:

So often, in a situation with people, I find myself thinking: “Should I say it or should I not?”. Should I be honest or not? This dilemma represents a core challenge: How can I be fully me with people? It seems that if I share fully who I am, I will have tons of conflicts and pains. And if I hide parts of myself, I will not be there.

So shall I endanger the connection or shall I disappear from the connection?  Neither!

So how can we be fully and radically honest, while caring for the relationships we have?
This is the core attraction that brought me into 'Nonviolent Communication (NVC)’. NVC showed me clear and practical ways to navigate this core dilemma in million of day to day situations.

 

During this weekend, we will practice:

  How to be fully honest in a way that creates connection, instead of distance

  How to initiate a ‘speaking the unspoken’ conversation, and navigate a challenging, scary, honest dialogue

  How to connect with my own authenticity, while being with others

  How to ask for what I want: How to 'play big', instead of ‘playing small’

  How to enjoy conflicts (instead of doing everything I can to avoid them)

  How to hear the true intention (honesty) of the other person, no matter how they express it

  How to move away from ‘who is right/wrong’ into ‘being fully ourselves and enjoy our differences’

  How to bring life back into boring and disconnected conversations. How to make relationship meaningful to us

  How to act out of our own spirituality/integrity and freedom, and move away from what Marshall Rosenberg called: “living in a society of nice dead polite people.”

 

About NVC:

'Nonviolent Communication (NVC)' (Phd. Marshall Rosenberg) is a practical communication tool that radically transforms your relationship with yourself and others. NVC cultivates assertive honesty mixed with a deep quality of Empathy.

NVC transforms conflicts into love and clarity.

About Yoram Mosenzon:

Yoram is now teaching NVC internationally to the general public, teachers in schools, universities, parents, businesses and teams. He is teaching in The Netherlands, France, Israel/Palestine, Belgium, Poland, the USA, and more.

Group:  

In an interactive and safe learning environment, we will be invited to work on examples from our own life. We will practice “Nonviolent Communication” through demonstrations, role-playing and exercises in order to integrate the NVC values and language more in our own daily lives.
