NVC Practice Group OCTOBER (2nd Monday of each month)

We will be going back to strengthen the basics of NVC. It would be helpful (but definitely not essential) if you have a copy of Lucy Leu's "Nonviolent Communication Companion Workbook" which contains well-structured practice group exercises. We use this workbook as the basis for many group activities. Worth investing in that book if you are mastering NVC.

Structure of the Practice Group:

  • Welcome
  • Opening Circle: sharing what is alive in you at that moment (feelings, needs)
  • Placement review of NVC basics
  • Exercising: e.g. Giving from the Heart. Seeing the needs that prevent us from giving from the heart. This is CHAPTER 1 of the Lucy Leu workbook. Not essential pre-reading to attend this group! You can turn up and participate even if you don't know this material. We will be prepared to share handouts and books with the group!
  • Reflective Round
  • Empathy Session
  • Agreements and Completion

 

If you have any specific topics, needs or preferences for this group, please email to let us know. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early so out of integrity we can commence this group on time thanks!!

      I`ve been looking forward to this one too. I`ve already agreed with a friend to attend his yoga event filmed by a TV company this Monday otherwise I`d have gladly lead the group. Why don`t you do the next one off schedule and get back to doing it every 2nd Monday from December?

    The happiness centre have passed a message to me from Alexis (our organiser/host).
    Alexis can't do our usual 2nd Monday of the month slot - her sister's in town from Australia. Alexis will email me RE: next session.

    So it looks like our next session will be soon coming.

    another fab session, with some good laughs. What was highlighted for me was the necessity of applying NVC on a daily basis - use it/loseit, especially interior communication. The advice to keep a diary really made sense, ironically i kept a journal for 5 years up to a year before starting NVC. I will resume immediately.
    In addition Angela gave me a link (Thxx) ohlife.com
    We send you friendly
    emails asking "How'd
    your day go?"

    You reply and write
    as much as you
    want - that's it!

    You end up with a
    really neat collection
    of your life stories

    Alexis generously offered me to lead her group, yet the following sessions will be lead by her as the current frame of the group doesn't match my level of experience in group facilitation and I want to respect the way she imagined it to be. Out of a need for comfortable growth, peace of mind and a more valuable contribution that is made possible as a result, I decided to start my own free NVC practice group. Everything will be ready for me to start it in 2 month's time including the venue and the funds. Until then, see you at the Happiness Centre!
