Welcome to Nonviolent Communication Practice Sessions. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is for people who are interested in active listening and who seek clarity on their needs and feelings. We will use NVC as proposed by Marshall Rosenberg and Meenadchi who teaches Non-Violent Communication with a decolonial and transformative justice lens (DNVC).
The virtual NVC practise sessions are on:
September 20 from 16-18:00 EEST
October 11 from 16-18:00 EEST
November 8 from 16-18:00 EEST
These practise sessions are for people familiar and not so familiar with NVC. By doing so we figure out how to be heard in the way intended, how to communicate clearly and how to listen empathetically.
Register to the sessions by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will then send you the ZOOM link. Please specify which session(s) you will be attending.
The main language of the meetings will be in English. Other languages are highly recommended as multilingualism is celebrated. This is dependent on participants.
Feel free to reach out with any questions.
Thank you and hope to see you there!
Welcome to Arlene and Vishnu’s NVC lab at Pixelache!
Meetings are held on Wednesday, 22.1 and on the following Tuesdays; 25.2, 17.3, 7.4, and 28.4 from 17:00-20:00 at the Pixelache office: Kaasutehtaankatu 1/21 (Suvilahti, Building 7) 00540 Helsinki.
Our group is open to all who would like to learn how to clearly communicate and be better listeners. As a group, we would like to investigate how we can get a grasp of our own emotions and how to be aware of our projections and attract what we want to say.
We will use NVC developed by Marshall Rosenberg's as our main source. His theory will help guide us on how to find ways to check our blindspots. In these sessions we will practise how to express ourselves honestly. We would like to focus on identifying our needs and then carry them out. We will listen, be heard and confirm that we have been understood in the way we have intended and likewise wise understand what has been communicated.
As performance and visual arts are our main artistic voice, we will use these methods and techniques as a means to put theory to practise. Depending on the group’s dynamics, we are open to all forms of expression.
“NVC is about connecting with ourselves and others from the heart. It’s about seeing the humanity in all of us. It’s about recognizing our commonalities and differences and finding ways to make life wonderful for all of us.” https://www.cnvc.org
Participation is free of charge. Register by emailing Vishnu & Arlene at pythogorianne(at)gmail.com and arlene.dearyou(at)gmail.com.
