About the Event

Do you ever wonder why NVC works so very well? Do you love learning about the brain and making sense of your life, your emotions and your mind? The world of Relational Neuroscience is highly supportive of a deep, connecting, and effective NVC practice.

What To Expect: 

In the upcoming 4-month period, there will be 12 classes, 1 class per month from each of the teachers, at various time slots to provide possibilities for folks from many parts of the world.

  • Sarah’s sessions in this trimester will focus on attachment and NVC. Participants will:
    • Identify the 4 styles of attachment
    • Discover some of their own attachment patterns
    • Explore how attachment styles show up in offering empathy, teaching and for everyone as students
    • Experience the differences between avoidant, anxious and secure attachment
  • In Peggy’s sessions, participants are invited to bring their questions and curiosities about how to teach NVC skills and concepts. Peggy will use her 5 decades of teaching experience to help participants explore how they can build interactive and effective learning experiences to support everyone. We will weave resonance into all we do.
  • Lori’s sessions will provide opportunities to explore challenging situations that arise as a trainer and facilitator through the lens of NVC and Resonant Language. Participants will have opportunities to cultivate tools and awareness to support movement outside of familiar and stuck patterns and honor their own timing, inner knowing, and gain increased confidence and grounding in their own sense of making sense.
