Student Freaks Out In Front Of His Class And Says What We're All Thinking About Our Education System

Student Freaks Out In Front Of His Class And Says What We're All Thinking About Our Education System | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it
I've never seen a student be so right and an entire education system be so wrong.
Sophia Tara's insight:

YOUTH AT THE HELM OF CHANGE - take a minute to view this video and hear the passionate voice of a frustrated student and the response of a weary teacher. One of our greatest human needs is to be 'seen' and 'heard'. What if the teacher had responded differently and taken this opportunity for an empathic classroom conversation to connect with this eloquent young man and her students?

Mair Alight's curator insight, May 10, 2013 3:59 PM

I so long for contributing to understanding among students, teachers and parents. I see so many models that can be accerssed: Nonviolent Communication, Radical Compassion, Challenge Day, Roots of Empathy...so many ways! I hope this student reaches out for support to make a difference in his school. "When the people lead, the leaders will follow." I Vision a world where anyone anywhere can access empathy 24-7-365. I mean the kind of empathy that deeply connects us human-to-human and invites strategies to attend to all needs.

Letter to St Valentine

Letter to St Valentine | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it

 

LETTER TO ST VALENTINE

Dear St Valentine
Your martyrdom
Resounds through the centuries
An impassioned heart
Guilty only of love

How fiery your flame
Defying laws of the land
A beacon of freedom
To the human spirit
Enslaved by evil tyranny

 

In this capsule of time
We celebrate your gift
However vaguely remembered
By romantics and poets
Your love essence remains

Yet we only know it now
As a dress rehearsal
For our sentient nature
Clothed in superficial colours
Of glamour and illusion

But a higher love beckons
One we will yet experience
On all planes consciously
The Magnet of the Heart
Will bless the sacred union

Even as I write
The supreme Lord of Love
Prepares His second coming
We await in awe the ultimate impact
Of unconditional love fulfilled

Then every day will be
A celebration of Love
And we will drink deeply
Joyfully yours truly
St Valentine's Day xxxxx

Sharing Our Common Humanity

Sharing Our Common Humanity | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it

SHARING OUR COMMON HUMANITY 
When we hear the other person’s feelings and needs, we recognize our common humanity. ~ Dr Marshall Rosenberg


More than anything, your children want to be heard.

Listening to them with a focus on their feelings and needs is the essence of empathy. Empathy is giving the gift of your presence -- without judgment, analysis, suggestions, stories or any motivation to fix things.

When you empathize with your children, you listen for their feelings and needs even, and especially, when their words sound like criticism, blame or judgment. It is at these times that they (like all of us) need empathy the most.

The Fearless Heart: Does Nonviolent Communication “Work”?

The Fearless Heart: Does Nonviolent Communication “Work”? | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it
Sophia Tara's insight:

THE FEARLESS HEART BLOG - MIKI KASHTAN
"The premises underlying the practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) often stand in stark contrast to the messages we receive in the culture at large — whether from our parents or teachers while growing up, or from the media or other cultural venues for the rest of our lives. They also, often enough, belie what we see around us in terms of human behavior."

Prospect Sierra: The Secret to Designing a Positive School Culture

Prospect Sierra: The Secret to Designing a Positive School Culture | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it

By giving students the freedom to design school expectations, Prospect Sierra fosters empathy, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving skills in students.

 

Instead of starting with expectations for how students should behave, what if a school began the process of community-building with asking how students wanted to feel at school every day? This is precisely what Changemaker School Prospect Sierra set out to do by creating charters in its classrooms: living documents democratically designed by students that articulate behavior expectations. Instituted as part of the RULER approach to social and emotional learning, the charter design process began in the classrooms with the students considering how they wanted to feel at school every day.

Fearless Compassion: The Gift of Empathy

Fearless Compassion: The Gift of Empathy | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it

I want to give you the gift of empathy
And to rid myself of lifeless thought limiting what I see
It’s taken me a while but I’ve come to see at last
How much I miss the present with eyes fogged by the past
So if I take some time before I answer you
I am clearing away my projections
So your divinity can come through
~ Dr Marshall Rosenberg~

Rumi's Field & NVC Santa Cruz | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it

This Fall 20 students at the UCSC moved into a residence hall called "Rumi's Field" in honor of the poet Rumi who wrote "Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing, there is a field, I'll meet you there."


Over the course of this academic year, these students will be living and learning the skills of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), growing their capacity for empathy and compassion. They are establishing an effective communication foundation to serve them for a lifetime. The students featured in this video live in Rumi's Field.

Self-compassion and Parenting: The Radical Art of Teaching Children to be Nice to Themselves

Self-compassion and Parenting: The Radical Art of Teaching Children to be Nice to Themselves | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it

Metta meditation is a core practice for many people, and if you meditate or participate in a contemplative tradition, the concept of “self-compassion” is probably very familiar to you. Most versions of metta begin with one’s self as the object of compassion. As the well-known meditation teacher Jack Kornfield explained, “If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.

 

The logic of self-compassion is very sound. If you want to be compassionate to others, you must be compassionate to yourself first. You simply cannot give what you do not already have. As Pema Chodron has explained “in order to have compassion for others, we have to have compassion for ourselves.” Strong metta always includes the meditator in some sense.

Children do what we do, not what we say. Compassion is an important quality to instill in children. The way we do that is largely through role modeling self-compassion as well as kindeness to others.

Despite the huge size of the school, Palm masterfully creates a small and caring community of students in her class. One of the main ways that she creates this empathic community is through storytelling. From sharing the stories of how they got their names, to telling stories of day-to-day life, students in Palm’s class are constantly communicating, giving and building empathy. However, this sharing and storytelling does not stop in class – students also bring home nightly readings to discuss and enjoy with their parents. An expert at empathy and literature, Palm was excited to share a few tips for encouraging empathy in your children while you read together:

EMPATHY AND SURFING

EMPATHY AND SURFING | Compassionate Communication NVC Nonviolent Communication | Scoop.it

When asked to define empathy, Dr Marshall Rosenberg compared it to surfing...When you ride the wave, the thrill is so exhilarating that you forget everything else. You live in the moment when nothing else matters, so intent on riding the wave perfectly that you and the wave become one. Pain and worry disappear, replaced by euphoria, akin to flow. Similarly, when giving empathy, you want to strive for this kind of total presence for the person you are listening to.

Conflict and the Illusion of Safety - Miki Kashtan

"Many people view conflicts as fundamentally unsafe, and it’s the main reason they cite for why they don’t speak up, address conflict, or tell each other what’s really going on. Because I see withholding truth in this way as diminishing the quality of personal relationships and potentially destructive in communities and organizations, one of the key practices I want to bring to people and to the world is the choice to tell the truth even when painful, even when we are scared about consequences, and even when we are not sure how to do it."
