Make NVC become a fluid language

The Intermediate Course is designed to support you to deepen and make NVC become a fluid language. A language you can use in millions of everyday life situations to transform conflicts and turn misunderstandings into moments of connection and cooperation – at home, work and everywhere.

NVC for me is not a theory

I want to embody and live it: NVC is a paradigm shift, a profound change in the way I learn to think and relate to myself and others.
It’s very hard to learn NVC alone. We live in a ‘Jackal educated society’, so it makes sense that to live NVC consciousness at home and work is highly challenging and we need support. This course is designed to grow together as a community of Giraffes to continue deepening the learning and embodying, and support each other to live and learn NVC in and outside class.

Content

We will address topics such as:

❀  The Dilemma of Honesty: Peeling the Onion toward Vulnerable Honesty

❀  Refining Empathy: Bridging Guesses, Juicing the Needs and more

❀  Liberating from Guilt – a core confusion that leads to tragic actions.

❀  Connecting Beyond (difference in) Opinions

❀  How to enjoy when people complain (even about us)?

❀  The Art of Being Torn – how do we make decisions that include all the many parts within us?

❀  The Beauty of the Need – deepening into the core essence of NVC.

❀  Celebration & Mourning as an art of living

❀  Healing Dialogues: transforming hurt and building trust.

❀  Moving from demand energy

❀  Expressing No in Giraffe (and staying alive)

❀  And more…

Group

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.

Extra support

Assistants: We will have 1-5 assistants accompanying us during this course. They’ve already completed the Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Year Courses with us and are engaged in their steps toward teaching/sharing NVC.

Desired amount of experience

This course is open to you if you’ve completed a minimum of 30 hours of NVC training, or have completed Connecting2life’s Basic or Connecting with Children Courses.

Fee

For this 09 sessions course, the fee 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.

Materials provided

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

2. Fill in the form below.
3. Send us the non-refundable prepayment of €70 (When making the transfer please mention your full name and the course name to help us easily identify you).

Account name: connecting2life

→  If your bank is outside the European union, please contact us to see if there may be a less expensive way to make your transfer.

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.

‘The regret period’:  If you change your mind within 14 days after sending the prepayment, and before the course has actually begun, we will fully refund your prepayment.
