Where & When
A zoom link will be sent before the class.
NVC and Focusing form a potent combination for daily living and Focusing partnerships, expanding one’s repertoire for attention and empathic reflection.
• the clarifying effect of the NVC process to untangle experiencing;
• a concrete practice of self-empathy that always generates a felt shift;
• how to find a handle, when stuck on a difficult feeling, using a needs-symbol;
• to fine-tune your sense of what’s potent in your partners report, guiding your reflecting.
OUR CLASS PROCESS
I will present a basic overview of the relevant NVC principles and practices, provide a sequence of experiential NVC exercises and Focusing dyads, invite agreements for group exploration, and facilitate safe and equal participation.
I’ve been offering NVC to my communities since 2016, and am 2 years into certification training with the Rocky Mountain Compassionate Communication Network (NVC). I provide one-on-one Focusing and NVC coaching, facilitate meditation groups and council practrice, and assist ecological workshops based in Joanna Macy's Work-that-reconnects. I have co-facilitated several meetups and RoundTables for the Focusing Institute oriented around Focusing and /or Nonviolent Communication.
Often, with non-Focusers, I find NVC to be easier to introduce to people new to the felt meaning of experience, and then I can slip in some Focusing. But I also utilize NVC in my Focusing work and (internally) with my partnerships. Both practices provide rich opportunities for presencing what's emerging in the moment.
