Join Gail Carroll and Paul Merrill for a day of empathy skill-building exercises.
This workshop is all about empathy skills!
Would you like to increase your ability to empathize in the moment with yourself and others?
Do you seem to have an intellectual understanding of NVC, maybe you have read a book or seen some videos,
yet you still struggle to access compassion in the daily conflicts of life?
Consider joining us for this workshop in which we will focus on transforming any judgmental thought by translating it into feelings and needs.
This is a great opportunity for couples to get on the same page with NVC.
Paul and Gail use their own relationship and challenges in sharing how they use NVC as a structure in their own relationship.
In group exercises and structured role plays you will be answering these two crucial questions:
When I am judging something as wrong what emotion am I feeling and what values of mine are at stake?
And that person who is doing/saying that thing I hate/fear, what need are they trying t o meet, just like me?
Experiencing these two transformative questions is the basis for a compassionate relationship to life. It is also crucial for any productive dialogue or negotiation: we need to understand ourselves, and we will need to really hear others.
The workshop is open to those who are new to NVC as well as those with NVC experience.

Facilitated by CNVC certified trainer Gail Carroll and Paul Merrill
Gail and Paul were both teachers of NVC when they met as continuing students in a year long NVC mediation program in 2010. Sharing a common language of NVC was crucial to remaining connected throughout the inevitable conflicts of intimacy. In 2011, they began to focus their NVC teaching on skills and practices they were using in their own relationship conflicts.
