INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS: THE TINIEST DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
What is going on between people?
What is going on between you and the people you love – your partner, family, children, friends and others?
Why is it so difficult at times to love, cooperate, understand and communicate????
This 4 sessions end of the year course is organized by NVC Academy. Registration: Link
NVC is the art of communication:
What ‘kills’ love, and how can we transform it?
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 will learn how to enjoy being angry, and to enjoy the anger of others. We’ll 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 obligation into a flow of creativity.
We will learn:
❀ How to support us both in being free, and why we would want the other to be free
❀ What Love really is and how to nourish it
❀ How to become a team instead of enemies – the keys to intrinsic cooperation
❀ Love key – how to be fully myself while being with you (If I am not ‘me’, there is no one here to love you)
❀ 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.
NVC takes you from your meditation cushion into real life – it helps you live your deep values in relationships and millions of day-to-day life situations. NVC deeply transforms your communication with yourself toward a quality of profound compassion.
You will be invited to work on examples from your own life in an interactive and safe learning environment. We will practice Nonviolent Communication through demonstrations, role-play and exercises in order to integrate NVC values and language more into our daily lives.
The way we teach is: 30% Theory and 70% of Practice/Demonstration/Learning from LIVE situations that are happening in the here and now. Our focus is very much on the Embodied aspect of ‘Nonviolent Communication’, so be ready to dive.
Assistants: We will have assistants accompanying us during this course. They’ve already completed the Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Year Courses with us and some are engaged in their steps toward teaching/sharing NVC.
