Communication for Transformation – Exploring Nonviolent Communication & Restorative Circles
What is Nonviolent Communication (NVC)?
We all grew up in environments in which the focus often lies on what is “right/wrong”, “appropriate/ inappropriate” or “deserved/undeserved” etc. This habitualised way of thinking and communicating tends to drive us apart in arguments, it drains our energy in any interactions with others and sometimes even leads to permanent disruptions. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers a concrete set of tools which enables us in any situation to navigate conversations towards what is possible, what is empowering for everyone, and what makes life more enjoyable. And to keep this focus, even though it might require practice and particular determination at times. NVC works like a compass that sets us on track to create fundamental shifts in any given situation.
NVC… * Responds to the flow of life, its point of reference is always the NOW * Creates clarity about our own emotions, our needs and those of others * Supports us in never giving in or up on our own needs while hearing others’ needs * Helps us to be fully honest with ourselves and to communicate from that honesty without any blame * Gives us power to hear others with openness even if their messages are tough * Is not only interested in conflict resolution, but equally interested in the celebration of life * Simply has much more to offer than we see ourselves being able to communicate here on one page
