This training is designed specifically for couples AND individuals are most welcome too.  We will cover the basics of NVC, Honesty, Empathy and Self-Empthy on the first day.  The second day we will be devoted to working with couples and individuals using role playing as the main modality.  Working in the center of the circle differs from working with a single facilitator/therapist/coach.  The circle of participants creates a healing container, actively being present as witnesses and sometimes even playing subsidiary roles.  In this intimate, supportive environment people can really break through the obstacles holding them back from experiencing true understanding and intimacy.  It’s like being held while learning to swim – the group says “Let go.  Take a chance.  We will protect you.  We want to learn through your work now.  We will have our turn too.” 

The willingness to take a risk, be vulnerable, is the way to making deep and lasting changes.  The conditioning to blame and criticize is very strong. Learning to be truly honest and empathic is the way to getting free of this conditioning.  NVC offers a clear lens for understanding ourselves and a powerful practice for creating the intimacy that we humans need.
