Nonviolent Communication Practice Session

Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a nonviolent social movement addressing the climate and ecological crisis. For that, we need to develop new skills that help us to act and respond consciously, with skills that help lead us into the world we wish to live in.
The word “nonviolence” comes from Sanskrit, “ahimsa,” which means the opposite of harm, or absence of violence. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) provides a model for meeting this key intention while increasing the chance for mutual understanding and effective communication for change. It provides us more choices by giving guidance about how to shift from shaming and blaming (making it about the other) and instead to take ownership by making observations, self-connecting to feelings and needs, and including requests for connection and action.
*If you have already followed an NVC introductory training* (2-3 hours), you are invited to participate in one of two follow-up PRACTICE SESSIONS. Participants bring in their own real-life situations and practice applying NVC skills—self-connection, honest expression and empathic listening—via roleplays and using the 4 NVC steps.
LOCATION & TIMING
Each training takes place online via Zoom and lasts 2,5 hours with a break midway. There is a week day and a week day evening you can choose from.
