XR Non Violent Communication – Introduction & practice – January 2021

Dear rebels,

How do you stay true to yourself and interact with others in a positive way when you address the climate and ecological crisis? What can you do when someone gets angry about it or you get emotional yourself?

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 us minimize harm. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a way of making contact that provides insights and choices regarding how we express what’s important to us while staying in connection with others.

Follow a free online Nonviolent Communication training to learn:

  • How to find personal grounding and calm (via inner dialogue).
  • How to differentiate between judgments & their underlying message.
  • How to differentiate between behaviours & their underlying drivers/intentions.
  • How to “disarm” and connect via empathic listening skills.

The introductory training which lasts 2 hours will be followed up a week later with practice sessions. These are for learning by doing – practising NVC by using the four steps for inner clarity and roleplaying, using participants’ real-life situations. The training is offered in English by Tamara.
