SkillShop Practice Class

Are you longing to dive into a 7-week NVC class to practice with a group of other NVC enthusiasts?

Each class we will focus on a particular skill and through a combination of role plays, exercises, and real life situations we will go deep into improving our ability to apply it in our daily life. This class is open to all REALationship 201 and above grads.

Each week there will be homework partners and specific exercises to team up on to further hone your skills.

We will explore how to apply these skills to our families, intimate relationships, work places, and our own inner world.



Some of the main topics we will focus on include:

   * Honesty, vulnerability, and intimacy
   * Listening with empathy and curiosity
   * Translating self-judgement to self-love
   * Hearing the “please” behind any statement or action
   * Making powerful requests to get needs met
   * The power of gratitude to super-charge relationships
   * Anger, conflict, and “screaming in giraffe”


Submit to a daily practice. Your loyalty to that is a ring at the door. Keep knocking, and the joy inside will eventually open a window and look out to see who’s there.



All criticism, attack, insults, and judgments vanish when we focus attention on hearing the feelings and needs behind a message. The more we practice in this way, the more we realize a simple truth: behind all those messages we’ve allowed ourselves to be intimidated by, are just individuals with unmet needs appealing to us to contribute to their well-being.
