In the Spotlight: Intention

"Two things distinguish nonviolent actions from violent actions. First, you don’t see an enemy and second, your intention is not to make the other side suffer."
—Marshall Rosenberg, PhD

"Intention and attention are fundamental to your NVC practice and make a huge difference to connection and outcomes, yet they are harder to identify, develop and maintain than the skills of communicating about observations, feelings, needs and requests."
—Bridget Belgrave

—Marshall Rosenberg, PhD

Listen in as Jim and Jori demonstrate the process — and learn about the benefits of using and cultivating it!  This session is available to all during February. Listen just below...

NVC Library Resources with Francois Beausoleil

Blame can become a terrible habit – one that’s extremely costly both personally, socially and culturally. When you play The Blame Game there are usually only losers. Nobody wins, not really. Learn how to move out of blame into peace – whether it involves others, yourself or situations.

The first session of this course is available for all to listen to and enjoy.

Francois shares the benefits of living in the Blame Free State, the state of the heart that has no enemies.
