HIKE and NVC!! - Robert Sibley Regional Volcanic Preserve


PREREQUISITE:  Some basic understanding of NVC

Let's get out and practice some NVC! :)

Bring some real-life challenges to practice NVC while hiking beautiful Robert Sibley Regional Volcanic Preserve.

We will meet in the parking lot at 10:00 a.m., pair up into two's, then walk the trail while practicing NVC on each other. Bring some real-life examples to work on. Tell your hiking partner who they are and what the situation is (VERY BRIEFLY), and then role play with them using NVC. This is NOT a time to go into long stories, drama, or blame-game gossip. It's time to practice NVC so that when we're faced with those challenges, we are more equipped to turn a potentially confronting situation into one with a peaceful resolution. (If your partner starts getting long winded on the "story", gently remind them by saying "Let's start the NVC game".)

Come play and have fun!! Hike as long or as short as you'd like. I'm thinking a 2 hour hike would be nice but this could be negotiable with your hiking partner.

I look forward to hiking and NVCing with you! :))

    Thanks everyone for coming. I really enjoyed it and learned more practical nvc for my life. It was great connecting with you all and spending a beautiful day out in nature on an awesome trail. How does it get any better than that?

    It was an awesome morning for a hike; perfect weather. My NVC companions were equally awesome!
