About the event
“Intensity Practice”, which I learned in the Mediate Your Life program taught by John Kinyon and Ike Lasater, is my favorite tool for bringing NVC into my everyday life. I use it to connect to needs and act from choice when overwhelmed by feelings such as anger and frustration; it can help with sadness, confusion, or any disconnection from one's self or others.
In this workshop, my aim is for each person to connect deeply with what is going on inside of her/himself in moments of intensity - and to honor and savor the needs that s/he finds. When we can connect with our needs, we can act with amazing strength, whether we choose to support or empathize with another person, or whether we choose to express our own needs.
After the explanation and demo, we will break into pairs to practice. Please have an NVC needs list handy for this work. It is also helpful to bring have in mind a triggering statement to work with -- Some examples: "You're not a good team member," "Do you always have to bring politics into it?" We will use the triggering statements in role plays in our practice.
This Zoom workshop will be limited to 12 participants.
