Non Violent Communication Retreat (NVC), hiking and relaxation in nature - 2 days
About the activity
Total price: € 295 - 2 nights and 2 days (full board)
Why this retreat?
In our lives, our personal relationships play a very significant role. With partners, family, friends, and colleagues, the way we communicate can often lead to unintentional misunderstandings, as well as emotional and even physical tension. This retreat will introduce you to tools to help understand and communicate your emotions, as well as hold space for those in your life. We will be in an idyllic natural setting, and our days will be supplemented with beautiful mountain hikes.
What is Non Violent Communication (NVC)?
NVC is a method/process that allows you to better understand your internal emotional process, as well as how to express in order to care for yourself, for others, and your relationships as a whole. Founded by Marshall Rosenberg, a US psychologist and mediator, Non Violent Communication consists of 4 stages (observation, feelings, needs and a request) with practical and “magical” elements to avoid misunderstandings, tensions and conflicts and improve clarity and understanding.
What will you get with the NVC?
You will improve communication within yourself and the people in your life. You will learn to connect with your feelings and needs, as well as those of others. You will learn that “conflict” ultimately brings us the gift of deeper connection.
