The Art Of Asking For What You Need – Focusing meets NVC

3rd October 2022 Zoom

Introductory online

We will briefly touch on and experiment with some basic aspects of Nonviolent Communication, a systematic pathway for recognizing and communicating our feelings, needs, and wishes (in a conflict situation). Combined with the Focusing way of aimless inner listening into what’s initially vague and fuzzy, the NVC process for fruitful communication attains a greater depth.

This practice can release us from stuck places in which both parties might not have felt heard and respected. Instead of pointing fingers, at others in blame, or at ourselves causing shame, this conscious form of communication – clear, honest, and warmhearted – can magically open doors for meeting everybody’s needs.

This reflection offered as part of Lynn Preston’s group “help for Helpers” for Focusing Professionals
