If you've been studying NVC for some time, you've no doubt experienced first-hand its transformative effects: maybe a greater sense of inner freedom, or breakthrough conversations with people you didn't know how to approach previously, or forward leaps in your work in organizations or activism.
More and more people recognize that the principles and practices of NVC regularly produce far-reaching results. At the same time, like so many who've learned NVC before you and even through you, you've likely had the experience of using NVC with quite the opposite results, even when you've applied everything you've learned: alienating people who don't trust your authenticity, being seen as a member of a cult, or endless meetings that don't converge on anything.
What is the difference, and why does it exist?
If you're sharing NVC with others, or are envisioning yourself going there in the future, this class may well help you understand and practice how you can present NVC basics to others, as well as rethink for yourself how you apply NVC, so that you and others are more and more likely to live the promise of NVC and less likely to approach NVC as a mechanical formula that could even interfere with connection.
Here are some of the topics that are covered in this class:
- NVC language and NVC principles
- Applying NVC in different contexts
- Finding the "why" behind the "how" for NVC basics
- Identifying the specific power of each NVC component
- Bringing life to NVC key distinctions
- Designing an NVC intro that is fully principle-based
- Naturalizing NVC with full rigor
How the Program Is Structured:
- Three sessions – This class is a mini-intensive, meeting three times in one week, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30am – noon Pacific (California) Time.
- Each session is designed to include some interactive didactic teaching; an opportunity, in small groups, to apply the new learning to teaching scenarios from participants' lives; and a debrief and deepening exploration of the small group work.
Registrants will receive a free packet of materials (that Miki usually sells for $30) a week before the class starts to support your experience and learning.
