What is going on between people?
What is going on 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????
NVC is the art of communication:
We will focus on transforming ‘love killers’ in this workshop.
Here are some of the topics we will address:
❀ Demands: How can we learn to deal with the energy of demand within ourselves and the people we love?
❀ Expectation/disappointment: What can we do with all our spoken (and even worse) unspoken expectations? What can we do with our endless disappointments?
❀ Hurt: How can we communicate our pain in a way that brings more closeness, rather than distance, to our connection? How can we learn not to accumulate more and more hurt, until there is no way back? How can we learn to enjoy being with others in their hurt and pain? How can we learn to enjoy being with each other without endless processing and overwhelm?
❀ Judgment/Blame: Instead of using all our energy to try to change others, to show them where they are wrong (judgement and blame) we learn to take the power back to where we have influence.
❀ Anger: We learn how to enjoy being angry, and to enjoy the anger of others. To learn to support each other in fully living all of our emotions.
❀ Guilt: We will see the surprising ways that guilt kills love, and be invited to liberate ourselves from the destructive dynamics it creates between people. Learn ways to transform guilt, shame and obligations into a flow of 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? (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
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.
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.

Choice between £100 – £200 / €110 – €220
→ 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.
❤ 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.

→ 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.
