Shulamit Day Ber Levtov
The focus of my work with NVC is in one-on-one sessions. I support people in relating to and hearing their inner experiencing so that they can contact the needing process as it occurs within them. From this foundation, I offer guided experiences of empathy and self-empathy that enable them to experience contact with the life-forward direction that lies within what is painful and difficult. I also teach key skills for offering one's self the empathic and non-reactive presence of an empathy buddy. I am a registered social worker, certified in Focusing as well as in Kripalu yoga. Since experiencing a serious illness, a commitment to compassionate authenticity for myself and others has framed my spiritual and life practice and political action.
