Nonviolent Communication (otherwise known as NVC or Compassionate Communication) is a process that was developed by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg in the 1960s. Based on principles of nonviolence and the belief that we are essentially compassionate by nature, NVC reminds us how uplifting it feels to authentically connect with ourselves and other human beings. It offers practical and powerful skills that enhance relationships and enrich lif
HOW DOES YOGA FIT IN?
Yoga is a movement and awareness practice that brings us into a tangible relationship with ourselves on every level - body, mind, heart. While yoga asanas practice may give us longer hamstrings or stronger, more resilient back muscles, the essential gifts at the heart of this practice are self connection and self awareness. In order to connect fully with others, we must first be able to connect with ourselves. By bringing awareness to our body and to our body in movement, we uncover a rich landscape of sensation. The language of sensation, the somatic markers of our emotions, helps point us toward our inner feelings and supports the tender unearthing of our deepest needs. Since yoga practice happens IN the body, it supports the body becoming a vital tool through which we can acknowledge, allow, and navigate our emotions. We learn how to use our body to ground and anchor, to establish a stable centre from which we can respond rather then react, empowered by space and choice.

Over our six days together, we will share our body based approach to NVC which will offer the "bones" of an NVC Intro training while diving into deeper practices supporting the cultivation of inner listening, discernment, and authentic decision-making/action in the world.
