The Power of Non-Violent Communication in Difficult Times
What is non-violent communication? How can you introduce it into your life? Lisa Golovina will talk about its values, principles, and techniques that will help you to overcome the challenges of life.
“In these stressful times (especially for me as a Russian, but also for the rest of the world) wherever I go, I hear opinions, opinions, opinions. People are taking sides, arguing, debating. These opinions, no matter how reasonable and right they are, divide people and in fact even drain us of energy.
We have emotions because we have needs. So instead of debating ideas, we could share our emotions and needs thus learning to truly communicate and gain energy through sincere connections.
For this, I'd like to introduce you to the tool of non-violent communication. It was developed in the last century by Marshall Rosenberg, a student of Karl Rogers. Marshall got the idea when he noticed that Karl Rogers' patients healed themselves in those supportive therapeutic relationships, but then went back to their lives and created new traumas through their way of communication.
Marshall Rosenberg dedicated his life to developing and promoting the tools of open, non-violent communication, which I humbly invite you to learn about and practise in our talk on Wednesday 6 April 22.
I hope to see some of my old acquaintances and make new friends who share the spirit of the InterNations so dear to me. We are all in it together.”
