Nonviolent Communication for Better Living

By AOLRC
March 24, 2017

Overview

How do you respond to difficult people and challenging conversations? Nonviolent Communication for Better Living offers tools for creating mutual understanding, trust, intimacy, and meaning in your relationships.

The retreat is based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication, and is led by Dian Killian who co-taught with Rosenberg and has herself written two popular Nonviolent Communication (NVC) books. NVC will help you transform how you relate to others – by practicing self-empathy, connecting to the needs of others, and asking for what you want. You will develop a greater self-connection and connection with others.

Whether you are new to NVC or wish to deepen your practice, you’ll learn practical skills, including how to:

  • Stay self-connected during challenging conversations
  • Listen to yourself and others, even when triggered
  • Discern what matters to you on a core level
  • Create strategies that work for everyone
  • Speak from your heart with honesty and connection
