about my journey with NVC
Since I fell in love with Nonviolent Communication seven years ago, it gave me unmeasurable value in insight in myself, my relationships and the dynamics of communication.
NVC helps me to live from a deeper connection with myself and my needs, to relate with my inner life more self-care and to relate to others with more compassion and understanding.
Eventually for me it's about living from sincerity and an open heart, also (or particularly) when that is difficult.
I see this as a life-long learning, where NVC continues to give new insights and tools. I find this work, for which Marshall Rosenberg laid the foundations and which is being developed around the world since, incredibly valuable and gladly share it with the world.
"The course gave me a lot. I reacher a deeper layer that I would not have reached by myself. It also gave me a lot of insights and much food for practice. It was supportive to do this together with a group of women, in connection. Merel guides this with so much wisdom and love."
"If you want to know which deeper needs your authentic, real self wants to live, then this course is for you. Under the guidance of Merel and through exercises with the group, you are invited to look into many aspects of yourself."
"Done with so much care for the participants. With respect asking deepening questions, clarifying."
