Why this retreat?

Do you like getting angry or being in front of someone angry?

Would you like to learn to set limits and manage emotions carefully and assertively?

What would it be like to get angry without enraging and clearly expressing what you need? And knowing what to do when someone gets angry in front of you.


You know the theory of empathic listening and yet you find it difficult sometimes to put it into practice in certain situations?


In this retreat, we will delve into the state of presence of empathic listening, deep listening to anger and automatic reactions in response to anger.


You will learn to connect with the feelings behind the anger, to listen to your own needs and those of the other person, with compassion, and to express yourselves from another perspective.


You will also see how to use the energy of anger to empower yourself with respect. And we will go deeper into empathy to integrate it into our lives in a more natural and organic way.

What is Non Violent Communication (NVC)?

It is a technique that allows you to understand what happens to you, what happens to the other, how to talk about what’s within to take care of yourself and of your relationships with others. Created by Marshall Rosenberg, an American psychologist and mediator, Nonviolent Communication consists of 4 stages (observation, feelings, needs and request) with practical and at the same time “magical” elements to avoid or clarify misunderstandings, tensions and conflicts.

What will you get with the NVC?

Improve your communication with others, your confidence in yourself and your self-esteem, learning to take into account your feelings, your needs, those of others, get closer to the people around you and enjoy life more.
