Wellington with Sophia Tara

NVC Practice Group & Empathy Circles with Sophia Tara
3rd Wednesday of each month 7pm-9pm

Sophia has been facilitating NVC practice groups since 2005 in Wellington city, initially with a closed group, followed by an open community group. It regularly attracted 15 – 20 people on any one evening, and became a valuable extension to NVC Foundation Trainings. Although numbers have dropped, the continuing practice serves as a wonderful introduction to NVC.  All of Sophia’s practice groups are open and free of charge. No pre-requisites.  http://cccanz.info/Practice%20Groups.html

               

Practice group sessions are 7pm-9pm every 3rd Wednesday monthly, amended to suit group needs. We usually open with a “What’s On Top” session. Each participant has 3-5 minutes to share with the circle where their Feelings and Needs are most alive for them in the present moment. This may mean connecting to their most meaningful and alive experiences during the week. The group listens with Empathy and Curiosity as to what Feelings and Needs may be expressed by the sharer. Each participant has a choice to bypass sharing, and remain as witness and valuable presence to others.

            

The evening flows into Empathy Circles. The “What’s Alive” energy from “What’s On Top” is held in Empathic Connection by the group. Into this Empathy Circle, each person decides what NVC resource is best utilised for meeting the Beauty of their Needs, and to be seen and heard by the group. Those new to the group share the energy of Empathic Connection. Sophia has found this form of NVC practice and Empathy Circle to be most effective in 2 hour practices. The outcome is renewed purpose and clarity, where each person is valued, seen and heard with compassion, and received with gratitude and loving celebration.

Practice Groups provide a supportive space for ongoing NVC training to build skills for authentic expression and to engage in empathic connection.
