Conflict resolution, BANGOR 23.05.15

Conflict resolution with Nonviolent Communication

A day workshop with Pati Bielak

Defuse heated situations before they lead to behaviour you’ll regret. Use empathy to let others know they are really heard—which is often all that is needed to transform conflict into powerful connection. Strengthen your connection to your partner, siblings, family and friends by more clearly understanding their values, hopes and needs.

Transforming Core Beliefs, BANGOR 23.04.15

Transforming Core Beliefs with Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

Intermediate training with Kirsten Kirstensen

More Than a Communication Model—Nonviolent Communication goes beyond communication techniques by showing us how to stay connected to the life energy in ourselves and others. NVC helps transform anger, destructive attitudes and habitual behaviours into more peaceful, life-serving actions.

This day-long NVC workshop will help us to uncover and address our beliefs that have been formulated in life-destroying language. Even though they are often hidden from us, they impact on our lives heavily. We will initiate a healing process for deeper emotional connection and personal empowerment.

This event is open to those who are already familiar with NVC basics.

Guided exploration of Needs-Consciousness, BANGOR 22.04.15

A session with Kirsten Kirstensen

Most of us are hungry for skills that can improve the quality of our relationships, to deepen our sense of personal empowerment or simply help us communicate more effectively. Unfortunately, the habitual ways we think and speak hinder communication and create misunderstanding and frustration. And still worse, they can cause anger and pain, and may lead to violence. Without wanting to, even people with the best of intentions generate needless conflict.

Nonviolent Communication, also called Needs-Based Communication, helps us reach beneath the surface and discover what is alive and vital within us, and how all of our actions are based on human needs that we are seeking to meet. When we understand and acknowledge our needs, we develop a shared foundation for much more satisfying relationships. Join the thousands of people worldwide who have improved their relationships and their lives with this simple yet revolutionary process.

FEEDBACK-giving and receiving skillfully, Aberystwyth 28.02.15

For communication to work we need to make sure that the message sent is the message received. However, what we mean, what we say and what is being heard are often three different things!

We tend to notice ‘communication’ when it goes wrong and when it stops flowing. This is a great opportunity to discover just how much communication impacts on our lives. Communication is powerful, and by learning how to use it skilfully, we could bring more aliveness and flow to our daily interactions with people… But also bring it to our inner lives – to discover the power of mind in peace.

Would you like to know how to express yourself skilfully? Would you like to learn how to deliver difficult feedback in a constructive way?

Or perhaps you would like to be able to receive feedback easily and not become defensive?

This workshop is based on Nonviolent Communication principles and is a way of bringing harmony, mutual understanding and peace of mind into your life.

Mindful Communication, Aberystwyth 27.09.14

When things go wrong, we tend to find fault with other people, ourselves or the world. But what if we learned to see it as a broken flow of communication, and were able to find a way to reach out so that we can be heard? Fortunately, communication skills can be learned, and there is an opportunity to find out how in a practical and friendly workshop this September.
