LI NVC Practice Group

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) changes our relationships by changing the way we communicate. Also known as Compassionate Communication, NVC is both a language and way of thinking and listening that strengthens our ability to remain human under difficult circumstances. Instead of habitual reactions, words become conscious responses based on what we know about ourselves and others. We learn how to be aware of what is actually happening, notice our response, find out what is underneath it, and take action to make changes. Just as NVC helps us to be compassionate toward each other, it gives us concrete tools to be compassionate towards ourselves, which can sometimes be more difficult. I'm beginning this group because it has made such a tremendous difference in my life. I'd like to host weekly meetings to foster a community and strengthen my practice and fluency in NVC. I am not a certified trainer, but I do have the materials for the training course, which will be the basis of our meetings. I have been working on my NVC skills for about two years. We will listen to the audio cds for the training course, have discussions, and go over the workbook questions. Depending on how many people are interested, we can tailor the sessions for particular interests. The meetings are child-friendly, since we have a newborn. Please contact me for more information! *information about NVC is paraphrased from the workbook
Meeting Times: 
TBA Saturday or Sunday evenings beginning in October
