Training: Time to tune in - NVC Training

July 14 - 18, 2024

Training facilitators: Marianne  Göthlin, Corrylaura Van Bladel and Towe Widstrand – certified trainers  with the Center for Nonviolent Communication

Nonviolent Communication practice for everyday living

This event was initiated from  several requests from our contacts, asking for a training in Sweden. We  are enthusiastic to have found the timing and place to make this happen.  We wish for some meaningful days of diving into NVC in “lightness and  depth”.  We invite you to practice NVC and to enjoy these days tailored  to our group and participants' needs.

For whom
Maybe you know NVC well and yet find it difficult to apply with people  close to you, with authorities, when there is tension, conflict or just  quietness? Maybe you have experienced that more words do not mean more  connection?

This is an opportunity for you who want to sharpen your skills to contribute to understanding and mutual conversations.

We welcome both you who are fairly new to NVC and you who are looking  for in-depth training. As we are three trainers we can adapt to  different needs and levels of learning and we all learn from each other.  These days count if you are in the CNVC certification process.

What we will focus on
We would like to offer a variety of opportunities to learn about and  practice the essence of NVC and its applications. Take our time to tune  in to core needs and how to make them alive in our relationships.

Some of what we envision to dive into:

- self-care
- expressing honesty
- listening skills

to practice using these three as possibilities for connection.

This can mean practicing

  • to go beyond self-criticism and identify core needs

  • mourning mistakes - and celebrate when things are going your way

  • developing inner self-care in language

  • transforming anger and enemy images

  • finding motivation and strength to be honest

  • listening with empathy - giving space to be in the moment

  • handle your own reactivity when listening

  • develop your personal NVC vocabulary, your “street giraffe”

  • listening when there are complaints, resistance, or silence

We plan to offer training on a  shared topic in the mornings. After lunch, there will be options for  training in smaller groups, on different topics, and also for  recreation, hanging out in the garden, going for a forest walk or  swimming.

We will eat all meals together, all vegan, vegetarian and with no  alcoholic drinks. We can also have some evening activities depending on  inner and outer weather.

So we encourage you to imagine yourself being with us during these  summer days, enriching yourself by combining days of learning and  recreation in a warm and supportive community.

Fader Chris Rajendram

As a unique quality input, we  have invited our trainer colleague Fader Chris Rajendram from Sri Lanka  to be with us these days. He will offer some meditations and be  available for some private sessions. Chris will decide about his  participation depending on health reasons close to the event.

Corrylaura Van Bladel
From an early age I have been intrigued and touched by the way people  (not) communicate with themselves and others. Every day I notice how  difficult many people find it to say what they want to say and not take  things they hear personally. This is exactly what I want to support and  inspire. So that people can live their authentic selves and can and dare  to have exciting conversations, beyond the differences. To be fair, in  my life it was / is no different, and I am still learning every day.  That is exactly what I stand for as a trainer: being human among people  and learning together by sharing experience and wisdom.

Towe Widstrand

Towe Widstrand, BA, has worked  as a training consultant since the mid-1980s. After studying with  Marshall  Rosenberg, she has shared NVC in various ways over the  decades, Towe has conducted NVC-trainings in more than 20 countries,  working in a wide variety of settings, including public organisations,  private companies, public groups and with individuals. She wishes for  others to realise how the insights of NVC bring relief and personal  power. Towe serves as assessor for CNVCs´ certification process loves to  share her experiences around how to share NVC with others. She loves  contributing to clarity and safety in her groups.

Marianne Göthlin

Marianne Göthlin is sharing NVC  internationally, collaborating with trainers in different countries.   She has a background as a teacher and a life-long engagement in  education. “I treasure the practice NVC offers to sharpen awareness and  communication.  I love the subtle power of empathic presence where there  is a space for everyone to be and where mutuality can grow. Sharing NVC  with people of all ages are ways for me to connect with hope,  purposeful contribution, and strength of community.”
