This workshop is for people who want to deepen their NVC skills. The focus is on self-empathy, symbolised by the roots of the Tree of Compassionate Connection.
We use the NVC Dance Floors, an active moving method of learning and embodying NVC, developed by Gina Lawrie and Bridget Belgrave.
The Dance Floors (DFs) are spatial maps made up of large cards that place the NVC process on the floor in various layouts called “dances”. Each card represent a step in the dance of communication. The “dancer” goes through the steps in a role play often with coaching from a trainer or support from another participant.
There are different DFs for transformative inner processes and DFs for role-playing a dialogue, e.g. self-empathy dance, anger dance, inner-outer dance etc.
DFs are a structured tool to:
- Support self-connection.
- Develop self-awareness.
- Develop listening skills.
- Get a deeper understanding of ourselves and others even though by observing and reflecting other dancers.
- Become more consciousness of what does it mean to be authentic
- Empower ourselves.
If we are able to find clarity in ourselves, get access and connection to our needs, in the long term we’ll built resilience which help us to have more capacity to deal with conflicts and live from our heart.
Deepen your roots!
