NVC Beyond Foundations – Wellington
13 October @ 6:00 pm - 15 October @ 5:00 pm
Beyond Foundations – Two Day Workshop with Toni McErlane and organised by Nicky Walker
Friday 13th October to Sunday 15th October Fri 6.00pm to 8.30pm with a pot luck dinner
Friday Night – We will come together to create some connections and knowing with each other through some introductory rounds and exercises. Bring with you a object from nature that speaks to/mirrors what NVC brings to your life and how it supports you. Please bring a pot luck dish to share.
Saturday 9am to 4.30pm
Day One-The Nuances of Power – In this day you will be invited to immerse yourself into the NVC perspective of power and consequently choice, in various ways. We will begin with a myth in which we explore the fundamental principles through the characters, then transition to an invitation for participants to explore their own lives through this same lens. The day will flow on with various experiential exercises to deepen and reflect on the ways in we consciously and unconsciously dance with power.
Sunday 9.00am to 5pm
Day Two – Interdependence – a whole earth perspective
We will begin this day exploring the concept of interdependence and independence within our daily lives through various experiential exercises then begin to expand and deepen the concept experientially within the framework of somatic ecotherapy. Included with the ecotherapy afternoon there will be an introduction to “Resourcing” and a weaving of this into the practices.
For those new to the term “Resourcing” it is synonymous with anchoring, grounding, supporting resilience, supporting security and regulation. Resourcing is tracking, noticing, and potentially bringing to the forefront of our consciousness the ways in which we know how to regulate ourselves and others potentially. And creating opportunities for new resources to arise.
Inviting people into the vulnerability of sharing their feelings and needs, and then supporting them to go deeper without knowing how to support them to approach the “cliff edge” feeling fully, safe and regulated, can often create more harm the good. In that people can often find themselves getting re-traumatized or in an emotional descent into despair and shame.
Resourcing offers a foundation of security, safety, and choice for both the practitioner and the person they are supporting.

I began studying NVC in 2009 as part of the North American NVC year long leadership program lead by Inbal Kashtan, Roxy Manning and Francois-Beausoleil, with Miki and Arnina Kashtan as a support facilitator, and then went on to share NVC in Sonoma County Jail as part of Bay Area NVC Living Peace Program.
Iin that time I also assisted Cathy Simon (Inbal’s partner) in two-year long immersion programs and two living peace retreats. Somewhere in this time, inspired to share NVC with more creditability I went back to school and completed a degree in counselling. Since 2012 I have had a private practice providing NVC, counselling and mediation support to individuals, families, and organisations. I have been facilitating NVC workshops in the US, New Zealand, and China now since 2010. Along that journey I met Dave Talamo from Wilderness Reflections in California who introduced me to somatic ecotherapy. Today living back in Aotearoa, I weave together an eclectic range of services and programs that include somatic ecotherapy, NVC, rites of passage as well as mediation and counselling.
