Workshop participants’ brainstorming responses to “What does NVC mean to you…?”



  • deeper understanding and connection before the trigger even arises
  • is it too mental, analyzed?
  • self-behaviour has to change first
  • provides ability to embrace other people’s judgements and not take personally
  • listen and understand self and others
  • balance
  • not about communication
  • I stop reacting (vicious circle)
  • clear, simple way to be present, not judge, feel myself
  • treating my child with respect, as a human being
  • spiritual practice: practical practice to live a higher consciousness
  • presence, so that I can identify my feelings and not project them on others
  • vulnerability
  • integrating into my everyday environment
  • embracing what is
  • breathing before talking
  • true intentions, transparency, authenticity
  • patience with myself
  • putting (e)motions in positive change
  • being aware (getting rid) of labels
  • mindful communication
  • letting go of judgements
