Somatic Practices for Embodying Nonviolent Communication, Deepening Relationships, and Cultivating Community

Communication in relationships whether at home, in the workplace or out in the world is challenging to be sure. The intensity in onsciously engaged relationships can shed light on places inside us that lead to healing and a truer understanding of one another. Body awareness practices integrated with Nonviolent Communication’s brilliant linguistic skills bring focus and intention to finding your voice with power and compassion within the bonds of relationships. Learn physical, emotional, linguistic and energetic practices that transform old habits and reactions into resources for self-healing and connection. These skills are essential for any of us who want to deepen the quality of our relationships, generate community, cultivate reverence for the sacred, and effect positive change — whether it’s personal, social, environmental, or political.

  • Develop your empathic listening faculties
  • Cultivate a centered presence in stressful times;
  • Make decisions and take actions that align with your values;
  • Nurture intimate connections and cultivate community.

Embodying NVC in the Workplace

“Under duress, we do not rise to our expectations – we fall to the level of our training”           Bruce Lee

We help executives and their teams achieve a culture of greater collaboration. Difficult patterns in
communication become opportunities for clarifying purposeful action and teamwork.  Building highly engaged teams is a key to success.

We work with small- to large-sized companies and non-profits throughout the US and overseas.

Our approach combines the brilliant linguistics of Nonviolent Communication and Somatic coaching, both internationally recognized methods which focus on what’s unfolding, how it matters, and enriching ways to move forward.  We customize each training to our clients needs to equip them with basic, highly effective tools to generate improvements in productivity and morale.

Practicing Nonviolent Communication embodiment in organizations is efficient and enriching.  Teams of employees that have spent time working together want and need to communicate more effectively.  NVC’s core teachings put us in touch with what we feel and how paying attention to our deeper needs guides our words and actions toward what is life-enriching for all and away from what is not.

There is an epidemic of organizations that suffer from power games played at the top and powerlessness at lower levels, from infighting and bureaucracy. Embodying Nonviolent Communication and Somatic training cultivates community in the workplace that includes greater efficiency, collaboration, effectiveness, motivation, and teamwork.
