Find renewed aliveness and connection in your daily life through NVC and Buddhist Mindfulness practices.

NVC can be lived as a Mindfulness Practice and consciousness that helps us be more present, open and loving to the flow of life within ourselves and in relation to others. Buddhist principles and practices can add depth and insight to NVC practice and consciousness.

In this NVC Academy exploration of the connection between Buddhist practice and NVC, we will form an online learning and practicing community. We will explore together how NVC helps bring to life Buddhist principles and values in relationship to ourselves and with others. We will discover how Buddhist practice deepens and supports our capacity to learn and live NVC in our daily lives.

Now you can explore this commonality by joining us for a six week course designed to delve deeply into this common and fertile ground. We will see how each practice can help us stay true to shared values such as mindfulness, compassion, nonviolence, acceptance and loving kindness. We will use the lens of each to help us find ways to stay in tune with our spirituality as we experience our interactions with others and become aware of our own inner dialog.

What You Can Expect:

If the combination of Buddhism and NVC is of interest to you, we would love to have you with us for Rooms In the Same House – Interweaving NVC and Buddhism. Anyone curious about Buddhist practices and/or NVC is welcome to attend - no previous experience with either is necessary!
