Have you ever noticed how being heard in a deep, empathic way is like magic? When we’re deeply heard, our whole bodies relax. We return to equilibrium, we can breathe again, and access renewed curiosity, empowerment, and choice.

We also get a fresh perspective and new insights: like a fog lifting, we see ideas and solutions that evaded us before. And with that restored vision, we’re able to find new ways to engage with others that, just moments earlier, seemed impossible or a chore.

How does that magic work? And how can you become an empathy wizard—with anyone, in any situation, including the most challenging?

Join us for this 6-week online course to find out and get more empathy magic in your life—and greater naturalness, flow, and ease in your Nonviolent Communication (NVC) practice. We will explore key concepts and practices, including new ways of seeing and practicing NVC, and learn all this through direct experience, exercises, pair work, and role-playing.
