Intention to connect with compassion

Nonviolent communication

Marshall RosenbergI have been very inspired by Marshall Rosenberg since I first attended a seminar of his several years ago. The message he offers about how we can communicate with ourselves and others from a place of inner connection, awareness and deep compassion touches me. I try to live from this place in my daily life having the intention to practice in every situation I encounter with my family members, my neighbours, the people. Other than in my daily life I offer seminars and workshops to individuals, couples, parents, teachers and their pupils in schools. Mostly people are interested in learning a new approach to dealing with conflicts, anger and frustration. They want more harmony in their relations, they long to be heard and for ease and flow in their interpersonal exchanges. Curiosity for this approach as well as openness and an empathic attitude towards any reaction and the intention to try out something different are central. It is like learning a new language wiht it's grammar and vocabulary. Sometimes it might be strenuous and disconcerting, it questions our previous way of communicating that we know so well and still at the end there is the wonderful possibility to communicate and connect with the people in a new way, from heart tro heart . In my experience it is well worth the effort!
