NON VIOLENT COMMUNICATION

01/10/07

Our guests were Lore Ergle and Ray Williamson who spoke about upcoming workshops on NVC. They provided the following information: About NVC

From the bedroom to the boardroom, from the classroom to the war zone, Nonviolent Communication(NVC) or Compassionate Communication, is changing lives every day. NVC provides an easy to grasp,

effective method to get to the root of violence and pain peacefully. By examining the unmet needs behind

what we do or say, NVC helps reduce hostility, heal pain, and strengthen professional and personal

relationships. NVC is now being taught in corporations, classrooms, prisons, and mediation centers

worldwide. And it is affecting cultural shifts as institutions, corporations, and governments integrate NVC

consciousness into their organizational structures and their approach to leadership.

Most of us are hungry for skills that can improve the quality of our relationships, to deepen our sense

of personal empowerment or simply help us communicate more effectively. Unfortunately, most of us

have been educated from birth to compete, judge, demand and diagnose; to think and communicate in

terms of what is "right" and "wrong" with people. At best, the habitual ways we think and speak hinder

communication and create misunderstanding or frustration. And still worse, they can cause anger and

pain, and may lead to violence. Without wanting to, even people with the best of intentions generate

needless conflict.

NVC helps us reach beneath the surface and discover what is alive and vital within us, and how all of

our actions are based on human needs that we are seeking to meet. We learn to develop a vocabulary of

feelings and needs that helps us more clearly express what is going on in us at any given moment. When

we understand and acknowledge our needs, we develop a shared foundation for much more satisfying

relationships. Join the thousands of people worldwide who have improved their relationships and their

lives with this simple yet revolutionary process.
