ONLINE 8 weekly sessions – Words Matter: Intro to NVC with Anna Banas
16 May @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The way we speak and the way we hear what others say matters. It matters to our wellbeing, our relationships, perhaps even to the joy and aliveness we experience!
If you would like to explore getting beyond emotional triggers and unsupportive ways of communicating…
If you would like to explore what it would be like to be able to hear and speak without blame, shame or guilt…
If you would like to explore how to get more harmony in your relationships (or maybe more fun and joy!)…
Come join us on this 8-week journey into implementing Nonviolent Communication (NVC) into your life.
During these 8 sessions we will experiment with practical tools that might help you with:
– shifting beyond anger and blame;
– seeing the difference between judgment and observations and the impact they have on our communication;
– understanding the relationship between feelings, judgments and needs;
– listening with empathy (to others and yourself);
– saying ‘no’ and hearing ‘no’ from others (and finding the ‘yes’ behind it)
– making effective requests;
– having difficult conversations and managing our own reactivity.
This course is experiential – we will spend some time learning new NVC concepts or processes, and lots of time practising them in pairs, threes and small groups.
During each session we will:
– discuss our home practice;
– explore one concept and process and apply it in exercises;
– discuss possibilities for shifting our habits.
