Do you long for more reliable access to NVC when you need it the most?  

When conflict erupts, NVC skills can sometimes seem so far away.  When you feel separate, enflamed with uncomfortable emotions and judgment, NVC can seem like the farthest thing from your mind. 

During those times it can be all too easy just to react when what you may really want to do is take a breath… come back to self… and gather the courage to speak on behalf of everyone’s needs…

How can you remember to use the skills and consciousness of NVC in the heat of the moment? 

Jim and Jori Manske will show you how in these recordings from their 2018 course!

They teach that when and how you address the conflicts that emerge in your everyday life matters! By slowing down and considering the state of your resources before engaging in a conflict, you increase the likelihood of discovering a solution that dissolves separateness and enhances the connection and compassion you long for.

In this course, you can look forward to learning:

  • An effective shortcut to activating “NVC Consciousness” when you need it the most
  • Skills that increase the likelihood of more connection and compassion, even in the heat of conflict
  • How to use the power of gratitude to create the energy to sustain yourself in the midst of conflict and enhance connection with others 
  • Ways to increase your self-empathy skills to support you in cooling down from reactivity, both yours and other’s
  • How to make powerful requests that deepen mutual understanding and support the flow of connection
  • Strategies for finding the courage to speak on behalf of needs
  • How to deepen your access to Empathy and Needs Consciousness
  • Ways to practice!
