BayNVC Immersion Program (BIP) — 2017

How can we thrive, even in the face of the significant challenges of our lives? Nonviolent Communication is not just about communication. It's about our developing our internal resources to be the people we want to be; to show up authentically and compassionately even in tough circumstances; to care more fully for ourselves and for others; to experience power and choice in the places that we tend to feel stuck or helpless. Within the warmth of a community of learners in the BayNVC Immersion Program, we explore real-life situations and uncover new ways to respond, discovering a range of choices in the place of old habits. We practice specific NVC skills, going for the intention behind the structures, the heart behind the words. We also laugh together quite a lot.
