    ONLINE - Embodying Nonviolent Communication with David Weinstock

    Von 19.04.2021 19:00 bis 13.05.2021 20:30
    Ort: online


    For the second time already: We are very excited to welcome David Weinstock (CNVC certified trainer from Washington state, US) to Forum Demokratie Düsseldorf!

    Join David in this course to learn a simple yet deep whole mind/body/linguistic practice.


    Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
    is both a simple set of skills and a lifelong practice for cultivating deeply connective relationships. Integrating body awareness with the practice of Nonviolent Communication’s brilliant linguistics helps develop inner wisdom to keep us balanced, centered and resourceful during times of conflict and uncertainty.

    Very often Nonviolent Communication trainings emphasize the verbal part of communication. David’s practices are unique in that they put focus on the less-emphasized nonverbal realm in which the majority of communication occurs.

    The work that he has developed offers a unique mind/body approach for embodying the art NVC. NVC as an embodied practice synchronizes language, emotion, and action to support a meaningful life that is deeply felt.Woven into his programs are lessons of conflict resolution distilled from the peaceful art of Aikido.

    Come and join us
    on this training to learn David’s unique integration of verbal, nonverbal, emotional and physical practices designed to help you to:

    • Align your words, actions and presence with your deepest values.
    • Develop your empathic listening faculties.
    • Nurture intimate connections and cultivate community.
    • Identify personal needs and balance them with the needs of others.
    • Manage mood and emotion in stressful times in ways that support connection.

    Such skills are essential for any of us who want to deepen the quality of our relationships, generate community, and effect positive change, whether it’s personal, social, environmental, or political.
