London Nonviolent Communication Weekly Practice Group

Participating in a weekly practice group is a great way to learn about Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in group that is safe and supportive. Regular practice on your examples from your own life will help you to embed your NVC skills in your behaviour, developing an attitude of compassionate and honest living. We meet in a lovely, historical Quaker building near Old Street tube station and when attending an event we request a £3 cover charge re rent, with no charge for the practice. We support each other with empathy, encouragement and NVC skills, using a combination of discussion, exercises and feedback. We usually do whole group work then break into small groups of (2,3 or 4). Even if you don't know much about NVC, our engagement with the spirit of community which NVC engenders is as important as the practice itself. You may want to mainly observe a session(s) to experience how you feel about it. However, we very much recommend you read 'Nonviolent Communication: a Language of Life' by Marshall B. Rosenberg, to help you understand NVC and to enable you to 'put in' as well as to 'get the most' from your practice session(s) It's available from Amazon and you can read the first chapter on our UK website: http://www.nvc-uk.com/resources.php viewing the following whole video on YouTube would also be of benefit:- 'The NVC Basics - 2 day workshop in San Francisco' runs 185 mins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwXH4hNfgPg Do come along and try us out, contributing as much as your comfortable with, in a safe space Structure of the evening :- • Welcome • Connecting to the feelings and needs that are alive within us in the moment • Sharing circle * Exercises which vary from week to week including breakout groups • Harvesting • Agreements and closing the circle Feel free to contact me (Cliff) for any reason and/or to let me know if you're attending; my number is 0757 8474 301 i'll be happy to hear from you:)
