Engaging power and working across difference

Date(s) - October 13 - 2018 until October 14 - 2018
9:45 am - 4:00 pm

Brownlow House


At the heart of NVC is a deep and compassionate awareness that much of our world is brutal, unjust and dysfunctional. Asking one another, “How then shall we live?” becomes imperative as our awareness rises. It is a question that resonates at a political, spiritual and a systemic level. NVC allows people to peacefully influence the organisations, communities and social systems that impact their lives.

At this Deepening the Foundation training you will:

  • Explore the different purposes of “power-over” and “power-with paradigms
  • Clarify the intentions behind your actions and longings for change
  • Work experientially to recognise power and privilege
  • Learn more about how to sustain dialogue and care across power differences
  • Understand more about structural privilege and systemic violence
  • Explore the cutting edge of working nonviolently to transform systems
  • Practice using the process with your own situations
  • Meet your own needs for power, respect and contribution with more awareness and skill
  • Understand what is required to “scream in giraffe”
  • Renew and improve the skills learnt in the Foundation Training
  • Share the experiences you’ve had applying NVC in your life
  • Build your resilience under pressure
  • Learn how to remain centred and empathic to break deadlocks

Come and explore how this process can enable you to be the change you want to see and to work in solidarity and respect with those who long for change – and with those who fear or resist it.

A longing for a different world for us to share, or an awareness that our current structures are not working, is often an access point to NVC
