Becoming What You Need: A 12 week immersion into practices for embodying NVC (David Weinstock) (online)

12-Week Immersion for Embodying Nonviolent Communication January 10th to April 1st, 2022 7pm – 9pm PST Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday “Becoming What You Need” sets the foundation for learning NVC in community in ways that synchronize language, emotions, and actions through meaning. Organizing from within to empower word and action as we train overtime to “become” more integrous, empathic, honest, kind, present, accepting, all in alignment with our deepest needs. This work is deeply moving as it gently attunes us to the signals of our bodies and a present, direct, immediate experience of the life we are living. The foundation of deep practice begins with looking inward. Such practices can--and often do--touch the grief that we feel when our actions don’t match up with who we wish to be, and they also illuminate the incremental shifts to celebrate as we bring our whole selves into alignment, anchored in the language of our hearts. Together we will: 1. Come back, time and time again, to rediscover what we love about the paths that we are choosing. 2. Notice and work with the anxiety held in old embodied reactions and strategies that we have historically practiced in our lives. 3. Choose enlivening practices that support what we deeply care about now and who we wish to become. 4. Through deliberate, committed practice over time, cultivate resources for connecting more capably, easily and enjoyably
