The two workshops are designed to blend seamlessly and smoothly into one cohesive and powerful experience of inner and outer transformation. You can also choose to attend only one of them.

For the first two days (Saturday and Sunday) we will explore the personal dimension of NVC integration – what NVC is for me, how I understand its essence and tools, and the next four days (Monday to Thursday) we will practice the art of facilitation, i.e. supporting groups to achieve their goals.

Living with Power: Deepening NVC integration

What is NVC integration for you? How do you experience it in yourself, in others and in the world? How do you want it to live in you and your environment?

We invite you to join us for two days of active exploration of the topic of how to naturally implement the principles, tenets and essence of nonviolent communication in everyday life. During this intensive, we will talk about the social systems and contexts in which we live, and how as individuals we can navigate and transform these systems through an orientation to Nonviolent Communication and Nonviolence more broadly. Explore with us how to be a giraffe in a violent world, transform systems from within, and inspire others to choose a nonviolent path.

Are you ready to deepen and grow NVC integration in your life? Do you want to live powerfully and co-create such a world for all? Come and let’s do it together!

The art of effective and nonviolent facilitation

Do you work with groups? Do you want to support different groups and teams in building rapport, communication, decision-making, achieving common goals? Are you looking for support and tools to do this effectively, consistently and in NVC?

We invite you to join us for four days during which we will go deeper and broader into the topic of supporting group processes and the aspect of social systems. In particular, we will look at the impact these systems can have on the power dynamics in the groups we support as facilitators. By weaving the principles of non-violence into our facilitation, we will practice specific skills for naming, navigating and interrupting hurtful power dynamics, and skills for inviting more trust and collaboration.

What can you expect?

In addition to exploring the topic of systems and their impact on groups, power and the facilitation process itself, you can expect to deepen your skills as a facilitator – asking questions, actively listening, clarifying, summarizing and gathering essences, including all voices, creating space for self-expression and building rapport among group members, looking at statements and the process from a meta-level and bringing your observations to the process.
