In this five-day event you will learn some of the key skills and processes from Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and Restorative Circles (RC) that are essential for building resilient relationships and reconciling communities. NVC & RC offer practical skills and processes to reconcile and to build peace at all levels of society (individual, organizational, communal, and systemic). These skills and processes have been utilized around the world in a variety of cultures and settings where they have proven to be very effective in numerous situations; they are simple, practical, yet often quite powerful.
- Develop the personal skills and consciousness to stay grounded and focused within yourself even when uncertainty or your own strong emotions limit your ability to work powerfully and collaboratively
- Develop practical skills to navigate the turbulence of human communication and create resilient sustainable relationships.
- Practice transforming the stories and enemy images of the ‘other’ and experience the emotional pain, frustration, even hatred, melting away into acceptance, appreciation and compassion.
- Facilitate processes that empower communities to take ownership of systemic approaches for conflict transformation
- Learn how to build a container for dialogue that can sustain all the pain and intense emotions that arise from experiencing conflict
- Explore the four components of reconciliation and practice the skills and processes that put these components into effective action
