What is Nonviolent Communication?
Nonviolent Communication is the integration of 4 things:
• Consciousness: a set of principles that support living a life of empathy, care, courage, and authenticity
• Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance
• Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even in disagreement, and how to move toward solutions that work for all
• Means of influence: sharing “power with others” rather than using “power over others”
NVC serves our desire to do three things:
1 Increase our ability to live with choice, meaning, and connection
2 Connect empathically with self and others to have more satisfying relationships
3 Sharing of resources so everyone is able to benefit
