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

"Think about your intentionality – are you getting lost in the method or coming from the intentionality, the purpose? You don’t want to do the mechanics without the consciousness."
—Marshall Rosenberg, PhD

Jim and Jori Manske’s Zero Step helps you focus your attention on your intention to connect, and then affirms your intention to live in the present. 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...
