“NVC in Action” Two-CD Set

Many of you have heard Miki’s radio program “The Conflict Hotline,” the call-in radio show that aired on KPFA between 2004 and 2006. We are very excited to announce that excerpts from this radio show are now available in a two-CD set. We picked a variety of situations and subjects enabling the listener to witness the power of NVC in action. In her interactions with different callers, Miki models empathy, authentic and vulnerable expression, guidance, and coaching. Where relevant, she also shares examples and stories from her own life experience.

Please note: this is now a digital download ONLY. No physical CDs will be shipped.

Connected Parenting: Nonviolent Communication in Family Life with Inbal Kashtan (m4a audio)

“Connected Parenting: Nonviolent Communication in Family Life” is a recording of an introductory workshop given by Inbal Kashtan in 2004 to a statewide parents’ conference. The CD covers the core principles of NVC (for example, all actions are an attempt to meet needs), some key distinctions (such as the difference between needs and strategies), and a wealth of questions and stories that are specific to parenting: working with “no”; shifting from guilt, shame, and rewards/punishment to open-hearted communication and mutual understanding; cultivating responsibility and consideration for others; nurturing compassion for ourselves when we fall short of our values; and transforming parenting to become a path toward peace in the world.

You can read  more about Inbal’s approach in her article at The Natural Child Project, and you can also read the first chapter of the booklet Parenting from Your Heart: Sharing the Gifts of Compassion, Connection, and Choice by Inbal Kashtan.

Please note this is an audio download; no physical CD will be sent.

Basic Handout for Convergent Facilitation

One of Miki Kashtan‘s core offerings in the world is the process of Convergent Facilitation which she developed to apply the principles of NVC to the task of supporting groups in making collaborative decisions. This process has been used in dozens of settings by now, and has proven robust. While we are awaiting the possibility of finding a publisher for the manuscript Miki has written, we are making available to folks who want a basic introduction a packet that provides the core principles and flow of Convergent facilitation.

This packet begins to demonstrate how to put into practice the core principles that make convergence possible:

  • It is surprisingly and reliably possible, often easy, to find agreements on principles in the midst of disagreements on positions.
  • When we trust that our needs and concerns matter, and understand the needs and concerns of others, we can feel the difference between compromise and shift.
  • While we may only encompass a narrow range of solutions on the basis of preference, we can embrace a wider range on the basis of willingness.
  • We become amazingly creative when we transcend either/or frames and aim instead for solutions that work for everyone.

These may now be purchased (choose your own price), along with other Learning Packets, at TheFearlessHeart.org

Documents for Principle-Based Teaching

Miki Kashtan is celebrated by many participants in her workshops for bringing them experiences of NVC that support real integration of the core principles of NVC. This shift from how to why allows for a level of fluency that helps connect her with audiences in various settings and cultural contexts.

At the core of the Principle Based Teaching approach you will find:

  • Naming workshops in language and terms that speak to audience needs and challenges
  • Describing your work in terms of results rather than process
  • Providing a transformative experience that’s rooted in what people want to learn rather than what you want to teach
  • Understanding plans as an empathic guess about the future
  • Identifying principles, core practices, and consciousness shifts to ground planning
  • Utilizing the power of living and using NVC and letting the teaching follow the experience
  • Transcending the plan vs. the moment by tying what happens to intended core principles
  • Naturalizing the language of NVC based on context
  • Leaving participants with key practices they can use without further training

Miki is making available the materials she developed in support of this approach to teaching. She is also offering monthly calls that you can join, offered as a pure gift without any money exchange, for coaching and community building with others who are trying to share NVC in this way. If you would like to support this work, please consider joining her Circle of Support by clicking here.

These may now be purchased (choose your own price), along with other Learning Packets, at TheFearlessHeart.org
