Let Me Begin with a Personal Note…
When I first started teaching NVC, I was, as expected after years of living in this world of “not enough”, nervous and somewhat fearful. I was afraid my students will deem the lessons not interesting, not worthy of their funds, as not having the desired impact on their lives.
But I reminded myself of everything that you, too, will soon learn: that you are enough. That giving what we can give is the best we can do. And what do you know, the positive feedback started rolling in and my fears diluted into the thin air.
Over two years ago I set the teachings of Nonviolent Communication to be my goal in life. And I have been reaching it ever since. I want to enhance your experience of life and re-introduce you to joy, because once you are there – you will invite others in. And there is nothing more powerful, than the power of a positive community.
A better world is at our fingertips. I thank you for reading this.
Is This Parenting Course Right for You?
This Nonviolent Communication Parenting Course is a parenting course like no other; not only in terms of the knowledge that you will gain and the profound impact it will have on your relationships (parenting and others), but also in terms of the impact it will have on your life with YOU.
If the vicious cycle of fear, guilt, and shame had gotten the best of you, and if you feel its devastating affects on your children, if you want to escape it and lead a free life: this course is for you.
If you are looking to
- Significantly decrease arguments and power struggles
- Communicate to your children so that they would listen
- Manage evening and morning routines calmly and pleasantly
- Set boundaries in a respectful and respected manner
- Set agreements that work in the long run
- Decrease guilt around parenting decision making
- Better communicate with your extended family
This course is definitely for you.
In the first session of this parenting course we will learn all the aspects of violent communication, where it stems from, and why this is the only language we are taught to speak.
This violent language is the MAIN reason to all the fights, the conflicts, and the power struggles that are so present in our lives. During this lesson we will lean how to identify these violent words and phrases, and discover strategies that help us avoid the use of these words in our (immediate) future.
In this session we will learn how to flip violent communication into nonviolent communication.
Beneath our anger, beneath our frustration and sadness, behind accusations and claims, there’s something that vividly lives in us, a need that is not being met. A need so important to us that it keeps triggering all our reactions with the single hope of, eventually, being met. Needs are the cornerstone of Nonviolent Communication.
In this session we will learn three techniques to discovering these unmet needs as they arise, as well as six strategies to creating the desired reality, living a life of met needs with ourselves, our partners, and children.
In this session we will learn how to speak our needs in a way that allows our loved ones to hear, and choose to help us meet these needs. Through authentic self expression we will trigger our loved ones’ most inner and basic need of helping the ones they are connected to, thus – us. We will start seeing how our children react to our requests and start cooperating – not from external motivations such as coercion, but from the inner motivation for deep connection. For love.
In this session we will learn what is empathetic listening and how it saves over 80% of the fights and the conflicts, the power struggles and the insisting. With this new tool we will learn how to encourage our loved ones to speak their needs and cooperate, instead of fighting, hitting, and yelling. Instead of blaming.
In this session, equipped with all the basics of Nonviolent Communication, we will learn how to problem solve and manage nonviolent conversations in times of conflict.
This session puts everything we have by now learned into practice that is easily used in every relationship, at home, and even at work.
This session is fully dedicated to you: your questions, your thoughts, your experiences, all needed clarifications. It is your place to share anything on your heart and mind and receive the support of the community.
I am offering full support during the six weeks of the course’s duration via email or otherwise. Anything that you will find challenging or tricky, strategies you won’t find a way to replace, and words you won’t find a way to translate into positive: I am here for you. At all times.
I can assure you that be the end of this course your life will look, and feel, completely differently.
How Will This Work?
This Nonviolent Communication Parenting Course is a weekly course, taking place in a dedicated Facebook group via Facebook live videos and discussions. I open this course usually once a month, as soon as there are at least 10 registered participants.
The course includes 5 sessions, each session of 2-3 hours.
I highly recommend inviting your friends to join, and use this opportunity to grow a positive, nonviolent community around yourself and your children. This is a fun and enlightening experience with a huge impact potential. So don’t do it alone 🙂
Invite friends or family members, serve some drinks and snacks and give your loved ones the opportunity to see the world with positive eyes.
Have any questions? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll talk. Additionally, I will be happy to schedule a call and see if we’re a good fit 🙂
Talk to you soon 🙂
