Find inner peace and build capacity for self compassion
The heart of NVC, the bedrock of all we do is rooted in our capacity to be self compassionate. Are you looking for the ‘how’ to do this? Many of us come to NVC to build peace in our world and soon learn that peace starts with the first step of self empathy and love. We can break the cycle and chose kindness in the way we communicate with ourselves.
To take this step and many beyond, we will explore a variety of topics, including:
- Move from pain of unmet needs to celebrating LIFE!
- Develop an attitude of gratitude – expressing and receiving appreciation
- Find inner freedom by transforming judgmental thinking, limiting beliefs and self-demands and de-programming our unhelpful patterns
- Find internal clarity by overcoming indecisiveness
- Freedom from addiction and trauma
- Reflection into action
- Gaining clarity about our skills and strengths and how to grow in NVC consciousness
- Work with our own difficult emotions in particular anger, guilt, shame, and depression to find radical self compassion
- Personal healing and reconciliation through self forgiveness and mourning

If you choose all three retreats we will also, at no extra cost,
Offer monthly group coaching calls with a trainer to help embed your learning
Support you to set up peer empathy buddy calls
Share our learning in how to set up local practice groups- a strategy long part of how we build NVC community for ourselves
Give you access to a private online group of past and present participants for connection, support and resource sharing, using an online platform named Loomio
We balance teaching, practicing and facilitating individual and group processes, games, role plays, exercises, meditations and body/gesture based activities.
Because the retreats are residential and run for a whole five days, we really get to live NVC, practicing continuously for the time we are together. We get the full benefits of a practice, being held and helped by our growing community.
The retreat centres are amongst beautiful natural surroundings, with spacious and comfy rooms, and exceptional quality meals.
Let go of your life for five days, dive deeply with the holding of our supportive community and come out the other side with more clarity, resolve, and motivation for making your inner and outer world a better place.
Learn and practise practical and doable skills you can implement into your life straight away.
You will have immersed yourself in a culture of NVC, and this will embody deeply the learnings and values, opening you to a more fulfilled life as you step into your new power to be able to communicate clearly and reach your highest potential.

“All together it was an absolutely amazing and valuable experience! So rich with learning and growth and getting to know myself. I couldn’t have asked for anything more!
I had such deep experiences of self connection during the dancefloors and the gesture based NVC. It is hard to describe; I could literally feel how the energy moved through my body. I felt so grounded and peaceful and absolutely stable, strong and centered in myself, somehow unshakeable, and very understanding, loving and open at the same time. It was an incredible experience”
– Participant 2018-2019
Prerequisite to attend: at least two days of prior NVC training.
