What we're about

What's Nonviolent Communication? Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a framework developed by the clinical psychologist Marshall Rosenberg. NVC demonstrates clear, effective and empathetic communication. It is often described as a natural language of mediation or an application of mindfulness. NVC is a practical way to deeply and authentically connect with yourself, to understand more accurately WHY we do what we do and to effect change in our lives.

Let's get together and share, learn, and practice Nonviolent Communication. We host events, workshops, practice groups, and potentially more. Our organizers offer events all over Ireland, so be sure to check where the event is located.

NVC Community Book Club

Accents Coffee & Tea Lounge

Join us as we build community, facilitate connection, and cultivate support while deepening our learning on topics around NVC. We will enjoy a cuppa, while chatting about the reading material, and getting to know other people in the Dublin NVC community. This event was created in response to the many many times people have said to me "I've read Marshall Rosenberg's book, what do you recommend that I read next?" Let's read AND share our responses! For those of you who have been to a workshop or two and are wondering "what now", this is a simple next step! This is also a chance for us to practice speaking and listening with an NVC lense. This is a free community event, please help us to spread the word! Could you please share this with at least 3 groups or friends you think would enjoy it? For Clarity: This is not a workshop or training. We are not certified trainers. This event is intended to be an opportunity to make connections and build community, where we can meet other people who are also striving to apply the principles of NVC in their lives. FAQ: What if I haven't read the text? No worries, come anyway!! What if I'm totally new to NVC? No worries, come anyway!! What is NVC? Short for Nonviolent Communication, NVC is a communication and mindfulness practice based on some very simple universal truths: everyone has the same basic human needs and everything we do is an attempt to meet those needs. Connecting to those needs transforms pain, conflict, and violence into connection, acceptance, and empowerment.​ For the next few months we will be exploring The Core Nonviolence Commitments by Miki Kashtan June: Commitments for Relating to Myself July: Commitments for Relating to Life Aug: Commitments for Orienting towards Others Sept: Commitments for Interacting with Others Oct: Commitments for Engaging with the World You can access them here: http://thefearlessheart.org/resources/core-commitments/ OR we will provide print outs of next month's reading at this month's meetup OR you can ask Selene to print you the commitments in the form of cards.
