Excellence in online learning since 2006

Trainer Tip: One of the swiftest ways to close our hearts is having judgmental thinking or looking to get our way. How open are you when you’re in this mode? The goal in peaceful living is to approach our relationships with an open heart. Start conversations today with an intention to connect with other people.

Struggling to say "no"? Here are ways you change your adjacent mind patterns. First, note the differences between those who respect boundaries and those who often don't. Second, review situations in which you lost track of your choice. And rehearse what it would sound, look, and feel like if you kept connection to your choice. Third, seek validation of your experience - from a grounded and mindful (non-reactive) state.

Awareness of how we're holding our own and others' needs is important to our development. In learning to value needs, we often go through three stages: passive, aggressive/obnoxious, and assertive/mutual. As we learn and grow, we may relate to the following differently: Whose feelings and needs are important, who is responsible for what, how our choices impact others, and consideration for ourselves and others.

One NVC principle is "stimulus vs cause" - one may be the stimulus but never the cause of another's feelings. When we're upset this principle can help us express pain without blame. However, when others are upset it's easy to slip into blaming them using this principle. Instead, we can hear their pain with care and heartfelt mourning - without guilt nor defensiveness, and whether or not we agree. All this is important if we're sincerely applying compassion.

Notice situations where you're attending to another and giving up on your needs with resentment or a sense of submitting. You can also watch for “shoulds,” obligation, and black-and-white thinking around the support you offer. Is there a sense that if you don't carry out a particular action something bad will happen? If so, identify the needs at hand and brainstorm a variety of strategies to meet them.

Notice when you start to defend. Is your body tensing up? Feeling desperate for the other to understand you or your intentions? Find yourself explaining your behavior, giving all the good reasons why you did what you did? Trying to convince the other of your good intentions? If so, ask yourself: “Is this what I want to be doing right now? Is this really helping?” then practice one of these eight options.

Healthy differentiation is key to personal growth, learning and thriving relationships. When healthy differentiation is present, you can discern what's true for you and what you are and aren't responsible for in an interaction, and can be fully who you are in the presence of others. There are a number of ways you can become aware of and cultivate healthy differentiation. Let’s look at two here: self-connection and autonomy.

Like all the learning packets, you can download it without a paywall and you will be asked to contribute. Miki is still working on other packets for this course. Any of them that become ready in draft form is shared with those who register.
    • Aurélia, Menaka, and Miki are part of a group working on the VM for Power and Privilege. This document is active work in progress and everyone is welcome to follow and track this work. People who are engaging with NGL are welcome to come to meetings as observers.
    • Miki has many blog posts and articles on topics related to power, privilege, and NVC. Most of them can be found through searching Miki’s blog, and one member of the group that the three are part of is currently cataloging these articles. If and when this project completes, we plan to update this page with a link to the list.

    There is no set amount for this course. Though we offer below guidance to people in choosing how much to give, it is intended as support for you, not as specific requests. We invite people to register using a gift economy approach, so that everyone can have access and our work can also be sustainable. We ask that you give the most that you can do without overstretching or resentment. You can learn more about our thinking and about choosing your amount here. 

    • Supporting Others to Attend: $310 (Many people will not be able to contribute at the sustainability level so we depend on some people having the capacity and willingness to contribute more)
    • Sustainability for Nonviolent Global Liberation (NGL) and NVC Academy: $210 (helps to support the trainers and NVC Academy to continue offering courses)
    • Installment Payments: Make 3 payments of $70 if registered by December 1
    • Increased Accessibility: $25 (if you are from a marginalized group; or part of the global south, regardless of where you live and would like guidance on how much to give, this amount is just over 10% of the amount that is sustainability level)
    • If the above options are still a barrier for you to join, or if you would like to contribute a different amount, please choose the amount you can give, even if it is $0. Restoring the gift flow means, also, stretching into receiving.

How can you work together with your children to solve problems? In this video, Lisa shares a story about the challenges of navigating schooling on zoom and keeping her child’s creativity and interest alive. By inviting your children into the solution space and giving them the freedom to be themselves, you provide the capacity for trust so that you can solve the problem together and in a way that is tailored to their strengths.
