This is a group for people from all walks of life who would like to come together to discover, practice, and share nonviolent communication (NVC), which is a process of connecting with what is most alive in each of us. NVC empowers people to give and receive empathy, to satisfy the deepest longings of their hearts, and to effectively address conflicts and issues on any scale (individual, relational, organizational, community, global!). Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall Rosenberg explains the elements of effective empathic communication: observations, feelings needs and requests. I have been practicing NVC for several years and recently moved to Roanoke. I am excited about sharing NVC with others in the Roanoke area and supporting you in getting your needs met! Join the group to find out about upcoming opportunities.
