Level 2: Intermediate - Requests to Restore Flow

a deeper dive into Requests and how to make them and why they are so difficult!

By: Ceri Buckmaster

AUDIENCE: intermediate

Saturday, Jul 13, 2024 2:00 PM —
Sunday, Jul 14, 2024 5:00 PM
United Kingdom
Recurring event
Timezone: Europe/London

We’ll look at the relationship between request/demand and boundaries in particular in relation to different power relationships.


 Session runs on Saturday 13th July 2-5pm  and Sunday 14th July 2-5pm UK time

The video shared is from 2021 but the content is very similar. This workshop has been very popular over the past few years.



We’ll look at ways of making it really easy for people to say no, as a way of caring for your relationships


We’ll look at saying no and hearing no and bring empathy to both of these.


We’ll look at how reflecting back needs and holding a clear intention to get to requests can restore flow to negotiations and tricky conversations.


When making requests is difficult or impossible, what other options do we have?


We will role play one of the difficult to make requests in your life and see what insights you uncover about this request, this relationship and what your options are.



This training is a mixture of Presentation, small group, large group debrief and discussion – it's highly practical.

It’s important to me:

1) that this training is financially accessible for everyone and that your needs arounds sustainability are acknowledged
2) that my needs for sustainability are acknowledged.
3) that the needs of other NVC trainers offering similar trainings are acknowledged. 


I have worked in this way since 2015 and have found that participants enjoy the option to choose how much they want to pay, that it builds trust and connection. From my perspective, quite magically, I have always received an amount that makes it sustainable for me to put on these trainings.

If you regularly pay for personal development or travel regularly, please contribute something near to what you might pay for a similar course.


Of course, sometimes you can’t or there are other needs you have which mean you don’t want to. In the case of uncertainty, please communicate with me. However, I’m not asking anyone to justify their choices to me.


Refund Procedure


​If you cancel up to 1 week before the start date, I am willing to refund your contribution less £10 admin fee or transfer to a future training.
