Listen to Kelly discuss money and the future, offering us 3 decisions we can make now that will change our relationship to money and ourselves.

If you don't see media player above, or it doesn't start playing within 15 seconds, you probably need a newer version of the Adobe Flash Player for your computer: If so, this will help.

“Being” IS the change, we all want.  It is what gives Nonviolent Communication its spiritual, practical and personal power. Self awareness makes power with other beings and groups possible.   You must be present to win/win. 

In this telecourse recording you will:

  • Learn to be the “WE” while maintaining the “ME”.  We’ll receive tools to stay in “the with”, first with oneself, then with the other.
  • Gain tools to live a new kind of Love called “Being Love”.  This love requires nothing from others, which lets the Loving Live.
  • Receive 10 group facilitation tools to address:  energy drops, overwhelm, tension, chaos, attention hogs, hiding elephants, and withholding turtles.
  • Learn how to lead in groups without fear of fear. 
  • Receive tools for inspiring transparency and authenticity in groups.
  • Learn how to stay in touch with your vulnerability and innocence.
  • Gain information about 12 Tribal Technologies for creating Trust, ONE MIND cooperation, Connection, Enlightening Up Groups, a field of creativity, etc.

This telecourse recording is divided into three primary focus areas:

1.  Being Power with Oneself: 

  • The First Power – Being Consciousness Itself.
  • Allowing “Being” to act thru you.
  • Knowing who you are not.  Differentiating from your “Core Stories”
    (Of insufficiency, unwantedness, survival fears, flawedness etc.)

2.    Being Power in Relationships:

  • Being in Love with Freedom, and without fear of abandonment or control (as essence meets essence in relationships)
  • Transparency - The Energetic Essence of Nonviolent Communication - Honesty (but beyond the technique)
  • NVC as power tool, “Being Power” as the electricity
  • Relating with and birthing our Wholeness in Relationships
  • Letting go of Stances, coming out of Trances
  • Finding and staying in the “WITH” with others

3.  Being Power in Groups:

  • Leading groups from the “Power of your Being”
  • Tools for generating “Fields of connected collective awareness”
  • Speaking with groups from Presence not Performance
  • Dropping Guru/Teacher roles while supporting a consciousness of “Collective Messiahs” (Groups holding collective wisdom together)
