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. 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. This training complements the Living NVC modules at an individual, inter-personal and at a community level. It is also hugely relevant to the education and parenting course.
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.
The mini intensive offers you the opportunity to explore Power and Privilege, and to learn an inclusive and effective Collaborative Decision-Making process. This can also be effectively employed by leaders and change-makers (with, and without, structural power) – developed and proven by Miki Kashtan, this group process is called Convergent Facilitation.
