Consciousness, love and wisdom are values that more and more people want to live in their lives. The purpose of this training is to show how we can do it in practice, inspired by the Nonviolent Communication (NVC). We use NVC to liberate ourselves and help us get into the flow of life through experiences in the present.
Each of us can take steps towards living in harmony with our own values, unfolding more of our inherent wisdom, and getting closer to our core – to come home.
For many NVC represents a hope for finally being understood and gaining skills that can create the harmony and joy that we have always dreamed of. But NVC is easy to understand and difficult to do. Often the words that come out of our mouth, does not live up to the consciousness that we have achieved. Or we can not feel ourselves, something stands in the way.
We will explore ways to feel more. Feel our heart, body, breath and mind. Feel our feelings until we can allow presence to guide us. Our senses helps us get into the present moment where the flow of life becomes more clear, and we can enjoy the beauty of who we are, enjoy life as it expressed itself through our needs.
We can expand our ability to listen to our inner feedback system in the form of feelings as we gain skills to find “the gold” – the positive life-enriching message – behind every negative, painful feeling.
At the same time we train the heart muscle, as we gain skills to find “giraffe juice” – the life-enriching nourishment – which is every positive, pleasureful feeling in our everyday lives.
And we develop a loving relationship with our “inner wolf” because we have the skills to listen to the heart of the inner critical voice. Needs are the shortest way to transform unpleasant feelings into pleasant feelings. And pleasant feelings are the shortest way to co-create the life you dream of.
We will work in a mixture of theoretical input and exercises in plenum, in pairs and individually.
The training is planned on the basis that you have had an introduction to NVC. We recommend reading the booklet: “Practical Spirituality” by Marshall Rosenberg
