Ομάδες Πρακτικής Εξάσκησης
Practice Groups are one of the most important means for learning and personal change. Consistent practice is what it takes to master everything, from musical instruments and Kung Fu to NVC. Practice helps us acquire and generalize new skills.
Practice groups are based on NVC principles and provide a safe space to practice through exercises, role plays and explore real everyday life and hypothetical situations. Together we can play, experiment, observe and learn without the fear of failure or the stress that can be present in a real-life context.
Some basic skills that we work on during NVC Sessions & Trainings include:
- listening deeper to ourselves and others, focusing on listening for elements that help us understand rather than judge
- expressing honestly, in a way that looks after the connection with our values and respects the other
- asking clearly what we want, considering the other, remaining open to hearing ‘no’ response for us
- saying ‘no’ to prioritize important needs, say it with care for the other and stay responsive to feelings that comes up
- self-connection in difficult dialogues
- connecting compassionately with our anger, guilt, and shame
- interrupting people with confidence and care for them in order to protect presence and authentic connection
- giving, receiving and asking for meaningful and respectful feedback
- being more present
- giving space to celebration and mourning
