This practice session will be facilitated by Sandy Perrin, and the theme will be Chapter 10 – "Expressing Anger Fully" from Marshall Rosenberg's book "Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life". Participants are encouraged to read at least that chapter before the session, for best learning and practice benefits.

Everyone please RSVP, and cancel your RSVP if you can't make it because places are limited!

General Intro:

We will study and apply together Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in English. This is a revolutionary way of relating authentically with yourself and others through building consciousness around: Empathy and Self-Empathy, Compassion, Emotional Freedom, Self-Expression among others essential elements!

The goal is to grow our capacity to communicate and exist in Truth from the Heart.

Practical Info:

If you are brand-new to NVC, please read or watch an introduction so you can come with questions and the first ideas about it: http://www.meetup.com/Geneva-NVC-Practice/messages/boards/thread/49971513 . In addition, at 19:45 we will be in the changing room to give a general introduction and answer questions, before the actual practice session starts inside the studio at 20:00.

If you come early, please wait on the 4th floor's landing for the previous group to leave before entering the place (after their class ends at 19:30), and be a bit quiet as they are chanting or meditating, or wait downstairs.

Wear comfy clothes, as we sit on cushions and mats. We also would like to take good care of the wooden floor: please leave your shoes before entering the studio, and store all your belongings (clothes, bags, and especially any heavy or sharp object) to the mezzanine upstairs.
