At the heart of this virtual course are simple yet deep practices to explore Nonviolent Communication as a whole-body/mind, lifelong art and practice for listening empathically through tough conversations, finding common ground and speaking your truth with power and compassion.    

This 8-session series offers an integrated physical, emotional, and linguistic map for practicing and embodying the qualities you wish to live by within yourself and your community. Here we take the time and space to establish an awareness of emotions during challenging and triggering moments – your body’s signals become an inner guidance system that brings direction and clarity. You are able to stay present during times of conflict, enabling you to continue listening empathically while exploring collaborative strategies that honor everyone’s needs.

During this Course you will…

  • Invigorate empathic listening faculties
  • Discharge the anxiety held in old embodied reactions
  • Make decisions and take actions that align with your values
  • Cultivate resources for building community more capably and enjoyably.

Facilitated by Liminal Somatics Assistant Trainer, Ryan van der Zanden.  Ryan is currently living in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.
