About the event

In recent years I have found the people I work with are asking and looking for more than the basics of NVC as a way to connect and express themselves with their loved ones and peers.

It's sometimes described to me as "a sense of something is missing" in the way they connect to themselves and others; or "something deeper" is calling from within that wants to be expressed but they are unsure how to access or action this. Some may even venture into calling this a spiritual sense of self, and others a heart or aware sense of self. I prefer to describe the experience of a deeper sense of embodied self awareness as Presence.

This event is for you if you have noticed the difference applying NVC makes to your relationships and life, and yet, you sense it has potential to create a deeper more spiritual enjoyment and connection with others in your communications.

An NVC Foundation Training underlines the importance of having the intention to connect and present moment awareness, but there is little offered about the ‘how’ of that. So in this workshop we are exploring how Presence can support connection.

Each of the four steps in the NVC model i.e. observation, feeling, need, request offers us a portal to a deeper place of Presence, and once we understand this we can create connection with self and others at a more fulfilling level.

This experiential day will include:

  • an attunement to Presence
  • a meditation into Stillness
  • exploring NVC communication from Presence awareness
  • becoming aware of how to listen with your body
  • feeding back to others what your have heard, beyond words
  • how you can use observations of the body to deepen our Presence
  • how you can use language to go deeper into a feeling sense of Presence
  • overcoming any resistance to Needs
  • how the body responds and feels with Radical Honesty
  • core beliefs, freeze, fright, flight strategiese

The two day version of this training is offered in Byron Bay which will allow more spaciousness and deepening of inquiry and experience.

So if you are looking for a deeper level of intimacy and connection with yourself, and the ones you love, then please join us.

This one day training will start at 10.00am and finish at 5.00pm on a Saturday.

This event will be held in Canterbury, Melbourne, Vic.

Tickets are limited as we will intend to create a safe intimate space with a small group.

This training will be facilitated by Alistair McKinnon, a Certified Trainer with the Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) the governing body in America, and a Certified Teacher, with The International Focusing Institute. Alistair has been teaching NVC programs since 2013.

After the training, there will be on-going options offered to you, to support you to deepen your learning and practice.

PLEASE NOTE: completion of a NVC Foundation Training is a pre-requisite to attending this event.
