BEYOND A STORY OF SEPARATION – NONVIOLENCE FOR PERSONAL AND COLLECTIVE LIBERATION
Your experience is essential to life.
Conflict is a way for us to connect.
My wellbeing and yours are interdependent.
Somehow on our journey of being human we seem to have become disconnected from ourselves, each other and our environment. Sophie presents the tools offered in Nonviolent Communication and a road map towards interdependence and reconnecting to the complex adaptive living system we are part of.
Moving beyond separating ideas of good and bad and right and wrong to restoring the flow of life, energy and information through relationship, communication and organisational systems we can make space for multiple experiences of life to thrive.
Understand the needs based consciousness that underpins Nonviolent Communication
Move self sufficiency towards interdependence
Connect across difference and find common ground
Build power sharing relationships beyond blame and polarisation
Increase personal and collective responsibility, choice, power and freedom
Connect to your experience as essential to life
