What we're about

How to talk about what really matters, with our true feelings and values, so we feel fully heard and able to ask for what we want! Human beings over sixteen years old are all welcome. We'll use Nonviolent Communication as founded by Marshall Rosenberg, practise choosing a compassionate way of conversation and bring ourselves beyond upsets, fights, judgments, blaming and criticism. We'll share our uppermost thoughts that are alive in us, we'll move, talk, draw, reflect, write, ask questions to explore how understanding our needs can transform our painful experiences.

Relating with myself and with others. Getting stuck in rough feelings? Empathy!

I was thinking about the times when we find ourselves unable to get hold of kindness or tolerance. Instead, we find irritation, annoyance, frustration and fling our hands in the air. Can we distinguish between "What am I holding that's my stuff?" and "What's the other person grappling with?" Where can we find a place for self-compassion and tenderness, for the feelings we wish were easier to have. Where are these feelings coming from? How can we soften them, before we act out of fear or annoyance?

Do join me and we'll explore how our bodies hold onto pain and how we can process it before hurting ourselves more or hurting someone else.

Write me a message and let me know what you'd like to explore too.

I'll have a giraffe and the NVC book so you can find me.
