Welcome to our global community of people who are committed to learning and practicing how to see each conflict situation as a great opportunity for understanding each other!
This is achieved through honest, non-critical self-expression and understanding the other person’s needs.
If you have answered “YES!”, are you willing to face and acknowledge your critical thoughts and words in order to transform them, all while remaining honest and non-critical? To look for good will in the people around you?
If so, i look forward to welcoming you at this program, where
I do not promise you quick-fix solutions, but the next step in our personal growth!
has been called the “language of life”. It was developed by US psychologist Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg in the sixties, and is now a constantly evolving process practiced in more than 70 countries worldwide.
By focusing on each person’s feelings and needs instead of on who is right and who is wrong, we are able to find common ground – regardless of cultural differences – as needs are neutral and shared by all of us.
This process is effective in helping people suspend judgment, freeing them from prejudice and culturally-patterned expectations. This greatly facilitates intercultural interaction.
“Before studying Nonviolent Communication (NVC), I thought I had been born in the wrong family. I thought that I had to change the people close to me in order to be happy. By applying “empathic listening”, I found that it is enough just to fully hear what is really going on in other peoples’ hearts. Once there is a sense of being heard, flexibility increases radically and conflicts dissolve.
I discovered NVC in 1996. Ever since, I have been committed to using it in every aspect of my life, and since 1999, I have been teaching it to others. I have seen how – in many different cultures – NVC provides an effective means for handling conflicts with family, friends, and colleagues in an honest, loving and compassionate manner. Of all the topics to which this approach can be applied, empathy is for me the sweetest. I especially value the aliveness and presence that come with honesty.
In 1999, I became an authorized trainer of the International Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC). I worked closely with Marshall Rosenberg, the founder of CNVC, for five years in many trainings in 30 different countries all over the world. What I like most about my work is the openness and love that emerges after a few days of training.”
