NVC Boston & the Art of Empathy
Do you want more harmony in your family? More authenticity with your partner? Help with resolving ongoing conflicts?
Art of Empathy & NVC Boston is dedicated to sharing nonviolent communication (NVC) as a way to contribute to more connection and harmony in the world.
Through workshops, classes and ongoing empathy sessions we provide people in the Boston area with opportunities to learn how to use language to connect and re-connect.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence– the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart.
NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that violent strategies—whether verbal or physical—are learned behaviors taught and supported by the prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs.
People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.
The NVC community is active in over 65 countries around the globe.
