Nonviolent Communication (NVC), also called ‘Compassionate Communication,’ is a communication process first developed in the 1960’s by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD, a clinical psychologist and student of Carl Rogers. The purpose of NVC is to strengthen our ability to inspire compassion from others and to respond compassionately to others and to ourselves. Through its emphasis on deep listening, NVC fosters respect, attentiveness and empathy, and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart. The form is simple, yet powerfully transformative. NVC creates a path for healing and reconciliation in its many applications, including education, healthcare, social services, interpersonal relationships and parenting, organizational settings, prisons, law enforcement, government, and mediation. It has been utilized in peace building programs in conflict zones such as Rwanda, Nigeria, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Serbia, Croatia, Ireland, Israel and Palestine, and the Middle East.
These sessions are suitable for people who are interested in building a culture of peace and communicating across a globalized, diverse population.
Shantigarbha is author of a forthcoming book “A Path To Empathy: The Art of Compassionate Connection.” Visit his website at SeedofPeace.org.
Consider the possibilities of beginning your own NVC practice.
