"WITHING" - Living the Three Modes of NVC


   Mair Alight (CNVC Certified Trainer)
Gustavo Castilho (NVC Enthusiastic Beginner)



Date and Time:

   Thu, Aug 6, 2020

August 6, 13, 20, 27 Thursdays 6pm-7pm Pacific Time


   "Withing" is an opportunity to practice the three modes of Nonviolent Communication: silence (self-connection), sharing (self expression) and listening to each person (empathy) within a community of sharing practitioners (in breakouts)  

During the hour there are no clarifying questions, vocal empathy guesses, reflections or mirroring. No cross-talk. No verbal empathy.

In the breakouts, one person who is willing to time each person for two minutes, starts off by sharing first (timing themselves), and then timing each person for two minutes so each person will have an opportunity to share for their two minutes. At the end of the time, everyone is returned to the main room for another round of silence.The reasoning of the timing strategy is so that each voice can be heard, and the time is shared among us for practicing the three modes to support us in our balanced practice.
Note these calls are not recorded.


  • Profoundly change your ability to listen with curiosity (instead of blame and criticism) and
  • speak with compassion for others while remaining true to yourself.
  • Experience getting to the heart of the matter, increasing shared understanding & more harmony.
  • We share a google doc with links to resource documents and videos, call structures, call "takeaways"
  • These calls are not recorded.

Who is it for?

  Those who want to learn ways to communicate that invite everyone to be heard and to experience that what they value matters without blame or shame.
Those who want to create less conflict and more harmony when relating to others in their lives.
You can benefit from this regardless of how many years you have (or have not) been practicing NVC in your daily life.
Those who want to find ways that create peace of mind and self acceptance when hearing their own "inner jackals".

What to bring:

  You are requested to bring your curiosity and openness to learn and practice.
Find a quiet place for the call, and have available your chosen method for note-taking.This is interactive practicing, not a lecture series!
Just like you play exercises on the piano to learn and grow increasingly proficient, we'll practice the learnable, reliable, practical, simple tools of the three modes of NVC together on the calls, and with a sharing partner between calls, if you like (optional).
