Have you ever found yourself in a position where others don’t seem to grasp what you want?
Have you ever had difficulties in understanding what others want?
Does this happen regularly with your partner, children or other family members, with colleagues or with friends?
Wouldn’t it be a relief to easily express yourself and to understand others better?
To drop energy consuming thoughts and stop trying to convince others to do things your way?
To express what you truly want instead of demanding or hide your wishes?
To see what is behind people’s actions and words?
If this vision is appealing to you, take part in an intensive online course introducing you to Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Change the way you perceive the relationships with others, start speaking in a slightly different manner and observe how more meaningful and satisfying your life becomes.
This online training course is for you who:
– want to have smoother, more fulfilling and sustainable interactions with others;
– look for more relaxing and joyful life;
– want to learn and integrate Nonviolent Communication in your everyday life;
– want to better understand your emotions and needs;
– want to be able to express your needs clearly, without demands or hurting others;
– long to be able to listen to others without getting defensive or giving up on yourself;
– like meeting people from different countries and want to build an international network.
During this training course you will learn:
– the basics of Nonviolent Communication (NVC);
– the way of transforming inner criticism to life enriching energy;
– how to listen to others with empathy;
– how to express and take responsibility for your needs;
– how to realise what you want;
– how to find joy and power behind anger;
– how to say “yes” and “no” with integrity;
– how to take charge of your happiness.
We will meet on Wednesdays.
