We are a friendly and welcoming NVC community in Calderdale who meet for connection, support, learning, care, play and more.
We meet fortnightly on Saturdays 1-3pm, generally outdoors in the woods near Hebden Bridge. This is a co-created space to connect, build community, explore living nonviolence together, and deepen our practice of nvc.
Our group purpose and culture is co-created as we go, based on values of care and consideration, authenticity and honesty, choice and flow.
We use a Telegram group for offers and requests between gatherings including meeting for empathy, connection, support, walks and outdoor time, workshops or training. This is part of our practice, getting more comfortable to make requests, and respond from authenticity and willingness.
We welcome new people to the group, and want to be as inclusive as possible, while also creating a safe space where we share an understanding of nvc principles. If you are new to nvc, we offer opportunities to learn and practice, and can also recommend other ways of learning nvc. If you would like to join the group, one of us will arrange to meet up with you to let you know more and answer any questions you have. If you are curious, please get in touch.
NB We also run 2 Nonviolent Communication practice groups – one in person in Calderdale (info here), and an online group. These are both currently on Wednesdays and open for new people to join. Contact Tom for more information at email@example.com.
