“Nonviolent Communication, a.k.a. NVC, a.k.a. Needs and Values Consciousness.”

HearTalk is the business name Liv Monroe uses for sharing Nonviolent Communication (NVC), “because NVC is about how we hear and how we talk, both with others and with ourselves, and even more importantly NVC is a language from the heart.” (Quote from a workshop participant.)

“‘This is not a technique to use to show that you are nonjudgmental; it is about being nonjudgmental.’ (Quote from a workshop participant.)”

Empowering Self and Others: Relate to those with lesser power such that they don’t hear demands. Relate to those with more power without submitting or rebelling.
“Rather than telling others what you would like them to do differently, tell others what you need. The former is often heard as though you judge them as wrong, dislike, or disrespect them. In this context, “need” is defined as the universal longing or life force that we share with all humans. We all share needs for: Peace & Safety, Love & Belonging, Truth & Autonomy, and Joy & Possibility.”
