In the Spotlight: Self Empathy


"NVC's most important use may be in developing self-compassion."
– Marshall Rosenberg, PhD

"Developing a consistent Self-empathy practice is the single most healing thing I've ever done for myself. It has allowed me to heal old, negative beliefs that used to sabotage my ability to enjoy intimate and loving relationships, and to uncover and express the greater Truth of me. Every relationship, friendship, and interaction with others has benefitted as a result."
– Mary Mackenzie

"When we make mistakes, instead of getting caugtht up in moralistic self-judgments, we can use the process of NVC mourning and self-forgiveness to show us where we can grow. By assessing our behaviors in terms of our own unmet needs, the impetus for change comes not out of shame, guilty anger or depression, but out of the genuine desire to contribute to our own and others' well-being."
– Marshall Rosenberg, PhD

Expand your needs vocabulary, and build your capacity to identify needs — even when you’ve been triggered. Check out Mary’s powerful teaching on Self-Empathy, just below.
