This month we will integrate Marshall Rosenberg's statement, "Everything anyone says is either a 'please' or a 'thank you,'" with the NVC Mediation Program intensity practice we first looked at wo months ago. Intensity practice is a way to ground ourselves before responding to a challenging message. Hearing the 'please' or 'thank you' in the message furthur enhances our ability to choose a response that furthers connection.
Our Baltimore group meets one Sunday a month for an NVC workshop and practice. To help orient "newbies" we usually spend about half an hour focusing on NVC principles. It's no surprise to "oldies" that this adds depth to our understanding too.
Fee: $15 - The fee is a request, it tells me that you appreciate my offering and helps to defray expenses. If some people do not pay, I trust that they are meeting other important needs.
