Communicationsm (NVC) is a process that strengthens our ability
to inspire compassion from others and respond compassionately to
others and ourselves. NVC guides us to reframe how we express ourselves
and how we hear others by focusing our consciousness on what we
are observing, feeling, needing, and requesting. It is a language
of empathy and honesty, and is sometimes described as “the
language of the heart.”
model of Nonviolent Communication was first proposed by Marshall
Rosenberg and has been used by him, and a growing team of trainers
around the world, for the last thirty years. The model builds an
awareness of the factors required for people to stay connected to
the humanity of each other while communicating, and offers specific
tools to stay in this often surprisingly revolutionary way of interacting.
People involved in this process of communication feel heard and
understood, find increased clarity in communication, and feel a
welcome warmth of heart that arises from being in touch with another
person in this way.
quality of connection created transforms situations where physical,
emotional or spiritual violence is in the air, so that compassion
emerges, and people choose actions that are in harmony with their
needs and values.
