Practice to speak and receive from the heart
17:45 - 20:00
This practice session will be facilitated by Sandy Perrin, and the theme will be Chapter 6 - "Requesting That Which Would Enrich Life" from Marshall Rosenberg's book "Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life", with a highlight on how to distinguish needs from wants, and break through communication patterns that hold us back from connecting at a deeper level. Participants are encouraged to read at least that chapter before the session, for best learning and practice benefits.
Everyone please RSVP, and cancel your RSVP if you can't make it because places are limited!
We will study and apply together Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in English. This is a revolutionary way of relating authentically with yourself and others through building consciousness around: Empathy and Self-Empathy, Compassion, Emotional Freedom, Self-Expression among others essential elements!
The goal is to grow our capacity to communicate and exist in Truth from the Heart.
If you are brand-new to NVC, please read or watch an introduction so you can come with questions and the first ideas about it: http://www.meetup.com/Geneva-NVC-Practice/messages/boards/thread/49971513 . In addition, at 19:30 someone could be outside the studio to give a general introduction and/or answer questions, before the actual practice session starts inside at 19:45.
If you come early, please wait for the yoga group to leave before entering the place (after their class ends at 19:30), and be a bit quiet as they are relaxing or meditating.
Wear comfy clothes, as we sit on cushions and mats. Suggested donation is 5+ CHF for the expenses of the room and NVC Geneva.
