Hi All! I'd like to start getting into practicing the art (not science) of hearing needs behind what someone is expressing.
In the previous 2 meetups, we listened for details and then we listened for feelings. Both can be challenging in their own rights. This time, we try to take the listening further...hearing what need they have underneath their communication.
Depending on number of participants, we will either do this as a group or break into pairs to practice. I may add to the exercise a few things so that we can notice the difference of the way the above exercise feels compared to other ways of interacting.
I'll send out my address once you sign up and before the actual meeting. It will be held in my apartment which is near Scottsdale Road and Curry Road in north Tempe.
I'd love it for you to attend. People who are new to NVC: please start reading or listening to anything by Marshall Rosenberg. He also has many YouTube videos if you haven't yet bought his main book called Nonviolent Communication, A Language of Life.
Please bring $1 to add to the collection to help Joseph upkeep this meetup group. Joseph, I have a few bucks to give you sometime.
Hope to see you soon!
