and Listening from the Heart
A Basic Training in Nonviolent Communication (NVC)*, a practice that
supports a consciousness based on living in the present moment. We will
explore how to carry an active heart-based mindfulness meditation into
each interaction by tapping into the deep spring of love that lives
in each and every one of us. Through this work we will open up to a
world full of compassionate giving.
NVC powerfully facilitates personal growth, family peace, compassionate
social change, conflict resolution and mediation.
NVC helps us focus our attention on
1) Empathic understanding of others while maintaining each other’s
2) Expressing our real feelings and needs openly and honestly, yet without
blame or criticism.
NVC delineates four components of communication:
1) Observations free of evaluations;
2) Feelings straight from the heart;
3) Needs, values and longings; and
4) Requests expressed clearly in positive action language.
