K16114: Non-violent communication and mindfulness12.01.2017 - 15.01.2017
During this weekend we will learn about and practice non-violent communication (NVC): through (guided) meditation, writing a diary, role play and different forms of communication.
We will look at situations in our lives and see what tools we can use to transform our anger, accusations, shame and judgements into a relationship with ourselves and others. We will practice loving speech, the type of speech that arises from the love in our hearts. We will practice deep listening, and learn to listen to that which often remains unspoken in our hearts. These forms of practice open the door to relationships and to a world in which the feelings and needs of everyone are gently acknowledged.
Course language: English and German
The lay teachers ask for a donation for their time and work.
Sunday afternoon there will be a healing and dialogue circle with Jewish and non-Jewish German and international friends.
Guests from outside the EIAB are very welcome for this course.
This circle will take place in an atmosphere of mindfulness and non-violent communication.
