Meeting three times monthly.
The course will meet online via zoom.
What To Expect:
This is a question-based program beginning in May 2022. This series of mentoring calls are lead by 3 certified NVC trainers, Sarah Peyton, Peggy Smith, and Sylvie Hörning, alternating days to give people from around the world an opportunity to experience different teaching styles and varying support. Each trainer will conduct their sessions in the way that supports their style. Sarah will begin by doing a bit of teaching about the way she integrates relational neuroscience and resonance into NVC, followed by space for candidate questions and coaching. In each session, there will be space for candidates to ask questions relevant to their certification and teaching endeavors. This is a wonderful opportunity to get group support on your journey toward your NVC trainer certification.
Most sessions are recorded for those in multiple time zones.
Sarah’s sessions in this trimester will focus on the following topics (other trainers offer their own themes/ways of working):
May 16: Being giraffe vs. Doing giraffe
