Session 1

High Quality Relationships

If we want a plant to flourish, it is not only necessary to free it from pests or infections. It is also necessary to provide it with fertile soil with the necessary nutrients for its development. In this way it will grow strong and healthy.

It is the same with human beings. We need to know what nourishes relationships in order for them to flourish. This is the basis for being able to have good communication and quality relationships.

Session 2

The NVC Model and Tools

Everything we do has an impact on our relationships. Everything others do has an impact on us. What can we do to enhance the positive in our relationships? What can we do to transform the difficult such as conflicts and differences?

The NVC model and principles can help us to enjoy our lives and relationships more, and to manage difficulties and challenges they pose to us.

  • How to start changing the dynamics in our relationships.

From Chaos to Order

To have harmony, creativity and clarity it is necessary to have order. To have order it is necessary to develop our capacity for presence and our ability to bring our attention to different aspects of our experience, all of which is the basis for transforming our communication and relationships.

What is NonViolent Communication?

Nonviolent Communication is one of the most powerful personal development tools I know. The way we communicate is the most indicative expression of our personal development and evolution. And also the aspect of our life that shows us where we need to continue to grow.

When living in — and relating from — the consciousness of Nonviolent Communication, we embody the following attitudes:

Self-Connection: We relate to ourselves and the world from a still place within — a place of compassion, truth, clarity, and peace. To maintain self-connection, NVC proposes a daily process known as “Remembering.” Examples of Remembering practices include meditation, prayer, inspirational readings, poetry, inspirational music, and quiet time in nature.

Honest Expression: We express ourselves vulnerably and without criticism or blame. We reveal our feelings and needs and ask for what we want, without making demands.

Empathic Presence: We listen to others with a silent mind and an open heart. Our sole purpose in such listening is to connect with the speaker by understanding their meaning, feelings, and needs without judgment. We attempt to remain empathically present even when we are being targeted with criticism, blame, and other such forms of communication.

Self-Empathy: When we fail at empathic presence, becoming angry or otherwise unable to listen with an open heart, we give ourselves empathy. We take time out to vent our judgments in the privacy of our minds. We identify and connect with the unmet needs in a given interaction, and we mourn the pain of our unmet needs. This process enables reconnection with our essence — love and compassion. Once we experience an organic shift toward a calmer and clearer mind, we ask ourselves what we can do to fulfill the unmet needs in the situation.

We also use self-empathy to mourn and heal from disappointment or loss, to celebrate needs that have been met, or simply to understand ourselves more clearly and discern the next steps toward meeting our needs.

Means of Influence: We attempt to influence others by revealing our feelings and needs vulnerably and making requests, rather than through coercion. We want others to contribute to us out of natural giving, and never out of fear, guilt, shame, duty, desire for reward, or to buy love. Because we care about the needs of others as we do our own, we are committed to seeking solutions that can meet the needs of all involved.
