We may struggle or get lost in our thoughts and this leaks through in the way we communicate with others, leaving them unsure of our intention.

At the root of communication is a longing to connect and to share what matters to us.

Our hope for this workshop is to help you develop capacity for a frame of clarity within which you are open to be moved and from which you can communicate clearly.

We invite you to join our exploration of:

  • Ways to get to inner clarity and connect with inner purpose
  • Decision making with more ease: How to choose and change priorities?
  • How to stay true to your purpose without being rigid/attached?

This workshop is for you if you:

  • Sometimes struggle to find inner clarity
  • Experience difficulty in making some life decisions
  • Worry about telling others about decisions once you’ve made them
  • Have difficulty stopping doing something that is no longer serving you
  • Notice that you tend to use more words than you would like to express yourself
  • Have attended at least 2 days of NVC-training.

Bring the topics that you want more clarity around, bring the dilemmas you want to move through, the things you would like to stop doing and any conversations that you dread, and we will be playing with those as we go.

We offer

  • our experiences (of struggle, of finding clarity, of difficult conversations)
  • Practices (like the Yes/No NVC Dance Floor) that you can take away and use to strengthen your inner connection
  • Space to explore, be vulnerable and try things out
