NVC Book Group

We have run a book group since early 2021 working through Marshall’s classic text ‘Nonviolent Communication – a language for life‘. This is a great place to start if you are a beginner, or if you would value revisiting the basics alongside others. (NB: If you don’t find reading easy or enjoyable, an audio version is available here).

We meet online on Mondays 5-6pm covering a chapter each week – exploring what comes up, our experiences and challenges, with chance to both practice and ask questions. We will cover all chapters in the book…

  • 11th Jan: Connection, group agreements and intentions
  • 18th Jan: Chapter 1 – Giving from the heart
  • 25th Jan: Chapter 2 – Communication that blocks compassion
  • 1st Feb: Chapter 3 – Observing without evaluating
  • 8th Feb: No session
  • 15th Feb: Chapter 4 – Identifying and expressing feelings
  • 22nd Feb: Chapter 5 – Taking responsibility for our feelings
  • 1st March: Chapter 6 – Requesting that which would enrich life
  • 8th March: Chapter 7 – Receiving empathically
  • 15th March: Chapter 8 – The power of empathy
  • 22nd March: Chapter 9 – Connecting compassionately with ourselves
  • 29th March: Chapter 10 – Expressing anger fully
  • 5th April: Easter break
  • 12th April: Chapter 11 – Conflict resolution and mediation
  • 19th April: No session
  • 26th April: Chapter 12 – The protective use of force
  • 3rd May: Chapter 13 – Liberating ourselves and counseling others
  • 10th May: Chapter 14 – Expressing appreciation in NVC

This is a great way to ease into NVC, and to support in joining one of our practice groups, the Calderdale NVC community, or attending other training courses.

The sessions are free to attend. If you enjoy the course and would like to make a contribution, there will be a way to do that. Viv would love to receive feedback as part of ongoing learning so that is another way to contribute.

Contact Viv if you are interested at info@reconnect.works.
