Sustainable Relating: An Intro to Nonviolent Communication

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a practice that was originated by American psychologist Marshall Rosenberg in the late 20th century. It provides us with the tools to live more empathetically, shifting our patterns of judgement and blame to those of compassion and understanding. With NVC, we are invited to live in connection to the feelings and needs that drive our every word and action, and to become curious about what might be driving the words and actions of others. We can learn to understand and advocate for ourselves on a deep level, cultivate more harmony and compassion in our relationships, and approach the world with an increased spirit of generosity.

This workshop will introduce the key elements that are at the heart of a Nonviolent Communication practice. Our time together is designed to begin laying a foundation for participants to begin a Nonviolent Communication practice, or revive a previous one! No prior experience with Nonviolent Communication is necessary.

Lyndsey Harrington has been passionately dedicated to communication work since she first encountered Marshall Rosenberg's book, "Nonviolent Communication" in 2012. Growing up with a deep love for meditation and alternative healing, she found herself yearning for a practice that could bridge the sense of loving unity she felt with the world during her meditations and maintaining that sense of connection amidst everyday human life as she knew it. For Lyndsey, Nonviolent Communication is that bridge. In 2015, Lyndsey began studying with the New York Center for Nonviolent Communication and then, in 2017, joined their team as a workshop facilitator/trainer.  She currently teaches communication workshops in Upstate NY and NYC.
