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:
- 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!!
