Course Intention:

In this course we will go deeper into the subtleties of embodying NVC in different corners of our lives, and we will grow together as a community of (baby) Giraffes to support each other in entering into the NVC paradigm – both in and outside of class.

NVC is a paradigm shift. It’s a completely new and different way of thinking from the one I learned growing up. I was educated to think in terms of right and wrong – NVC replaces this with a needs connected way of understanding my relationship with myself and others.

It’s a subtle shift, and yet a huge shift in my whole being! Each little step I take towards embodying NVC in my life brings me to a new realm of possibilities for empathy and connection with myself and others.

I can think of no other skill more worthwhile to learn than how to be with myself and others compassionately.

I’d be delighted if you join us.


We might address topics such as:
❀ Transforming Enemy Images
❀  Being the Only Giraffe in the Dialogue
❀ The Art of Requesting: If you don’t ask, nothing will happen… Stand up for your needs!
❀ The Dynamics of Anger: How to express and listen to anger in a way that bring connection and cooperation
❀ Transforming Core Beliefs
❀ Fear process
❀ Practicing Full Dialogue and Connecting in Conflicts
❀ The Art of Mourning
❀ Holding the delicate dynamics of Demand Energy to liberate us both
❀ Healing the Pain Between Us: How to transform hurt into connection/cooperation?
❀ Empathy in the Body
❀ Street Giraffe
❀ Freeing from Stories: Rejection stories, desperation stories and Self Criticism
❀ Healing the dynamics between men and women
❀ ‘Clearing up the mess Dialogues’
❀ And more and more and more…


In an interactive and safe learning environment, you will be invited to work on examples from your 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.

For this 9 sessions course it is a choice between €200 – €400

→  The choice of fees depends on your income and free will. The idea behind a sliding scale is that we all have different current financial situations, and we like to be flexible so that your financial contribution fits your financial situation as well as your personal wish to support us.
→  Invoices are Vrijgesteld (VAT free).

❤ Regarding Money:
We wouldn’t want money to prevent anyone from learning NVC! We see money as a strategy to care for the sustainability of our giving. It’s important for us to have a sense of mutual contribution. ‘Receiving’ supports us in meeting our practical stability (money), as well as supports us emotionally to be in balance and keep our hearts open to more giving. While we stand firmly for our need of mutual contribution, we’re flexible about possible strategies on how to meet this need. Money is our preferred strategy, as it’s easy for us to transfer it to the exact things that contribute to us. That being said, if the amount we ask would prevent you from joining, we can offer the following:
1. If you’re coming from a country where the income/currency is lower than the prices in euros, we’re open to finding a price that makes sense and keeps hearts open.
2. If you’re currently having a challenging period financially, you can pay us at a later date when your finances are better. Sometimes people even pay us a few years later.
3. We’re open to brainstorming other ways you can contribute to us, though it’s not always easy to find things that both you would enjoy contributing and that would actually be contributing to us.


At the end of each session, you will receive by email:
– A written summary of the session
– A zoom recording of the session.

Regarding the remainder:  We ask that you pay the remainder of the course fees within a week of finishing the course. We suggest you pay at the end because we like people to know what they’re paying for. We do this because we wish for your payment to be more connected to gratitude rather than to a sense of duty. If you prefer to pay earlier this is also welcome.
