This weekend is dedicated to exploring how we can live in ways that support a world that works for all on personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.


Explore on the Personal Level:

o   What is your life purpose?

o   What daily practices do you have in place to support embodiment of the NVC process?

o   What does embodied NVC with post-conventional fluidity look like? (“post-conventional” as used here indicates an understanding and integration of the essence of NVC that allows the form to be fluid, responsive and emergent depending on context.)

o   Understand the qualities outlined in the Pathways to Liberation matrix and the Core Commitments


Explore on the Interpersonal Level:

o   How do you fully live your values in ways that inspire and encourage others to live their values?

o   Do you love the quality of relationships in your personal support network? Can you share what you are most afraid to say?

o   What can you give and request in your transformational learning community that would make your life more wonderful?

o   Leaning into the dance of empathy and honesty for support, feedback, growth and connection


Explore on the Systemic Level:

o   How do we support the flow of interdependence and create spaces where all people matter and belong?

o   What systems, processes and skills can we cultivate and share to breathe life into our communities?


Sharing NVC:

o   Does sharing NVC support your life purpose?

o   How can we share our understanding of NVC with others in ways that model and articulate integration?

o   How do we apply or sharing NVC principles in diverse contexts while understanding the impacts of power and privilege?
