How often do you leave the sanctity of a yoga class only to find yourself soon afterwards becoming tense and reactive to the world around you? Non-Violent Communication (NVC) offers tools to create a deeper connection between people and clarity in speech. The compassionate listening skills cultivated in this class series guide people to reach a place of mutual understanding of yourself and others’ feelings and needs. The practical 4 step process of NVC offers a model for honest and effective dialogue and could be applied to your romantic relationship, work environment, parenting styles, and your relationship to yourself. Non-Violent Communication (NVC) creates a bridge between how you see yourself in the world and a cognitive way to act in line with your values through clarity in speech. Learn about the spirit and the structure of Non-Violent Communication as taught by Marshall Rosenberg, founder of the Center for Non-Violent Communication (CNVC.org) and open the doors to vast amounts of inner peace and harmony.

NVC unveils a processing language to live your embodied yoga (unity of thoughts, speech, and action) and a toolbox that you can use to apply the ideology of ahimsa (non-violence) in your relationships. It prompts you to stop and notice what is going on under the surface of your communication and tap into deeper needs and feelings that may not have been expressed. The process short-circuits the tendancy to judge the person with whom you’re communicating. And the resulting interactions become, in Rosenberg’s words, “a flow between ourselves and others based on a mutual giving from the heart.” The only prerequisite for this course is an open and honest desire to learn about how to keep a connection with your Self while gaining the ability to empathize with others. No previous experience required.
