Synopsis of course
The first step in building peaceful relationships is making peace with our own inner conflict and inner critic. When we can do this then it becomes easier to bring peace to all relationships may they be family, partner, colleague, friend or neighbour.
Using the concepts and principles of Non-violent Communication (NVC) we can learn to connect to what is at the heart of the matter when we get triggered with anger, hurt & upset. We can learn honest expression and deep active listening to be able to hear another's pain. Focusing on the power of empathy to gain deep understanding.
This course offers insight to a new way of being which can have powerful affect on how we view and show up for ourselves and in our relationships.
The course is practicial and gives an opportunity to work through your own conflict. It is an ideal place for couples of family members to learn these skills together but equally even if only one person lives NVC consciousness it can make a big difference.
Sharon Kirk is an educator, coach and mediator. She first came across NVC in 2010 whilst exploring self healing and having difficulty communicating with her teenage sons. What she didn't expect was that NVC would change how she viewed her life and it has become the most powerful tool for gaining self awareness and healing from traumas such as abuse, addicitions, grief and anxiety. She has tamed her own inner critic and conflict which has given her both inner peace and harmony within relationships. She has been sharing NVC since 2014 through practice groups and workshop facilitation and she gave up her teaching career in 2016 to dedicate her time to help teach and empower others to find their own peace within themselves, their relationships and ultimately to the world.
Sharon is a member of the NVC communities in UK and the International CNVC. Has trained with certified trainers from the NVC Academy and attended numerous training weekends with Certification Candidate Micheal De Buitlear.
About NVC:
Nonviolent Communication is both a powerful communication tool and a consciousness which can help you to transform conflict in yourself and your relationships.
NVC is particularly useful when people are communicating in challenging ways – with aggression or noncompliance. It is also a powerful empathy tool – it will help you to support people who are in pain or confusion, to help them understand themselves more and find inner calm and peace. And it is also a powerful tool for self-empathy – it will help you to understand yourself better and make more effective choices in your own life and relationships.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) was developed by Marshall Rosenberg, international peacemaker and founder of the Centre for Nonviolent Communication
For over 35 years, Dr. Rosenberg and his associates have provided NVC training in more than 30 countries around the world, offering workshops and conflict resolution sessions for schools, teachers, counsellors, health care providers, mediators, managers, prisons, police, clergy, government officials and others.
Peace programmes have been initiated in a number of areas with conflict including Rwanda, Burundi, Nigeria, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone, Colombia, Serbia, Croatia Northern Ireland and the Middle East.
