In Memoriam: Marshall Rosenberg

In Memoriam: Marshall Rosenberg | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

By Rhonda Magee 


Psychologist Marshall Rosenberg died on Saturday, February 7th. Rosenberg was the creator of Nonviolent Communication and the founder and director of educational services for the Center for Nonviolent Communication. He was 80 years old.


Marshall Rosenberg dedicated his life to the study and practice of the conditions that bring about peace. As a consequence, he knew well the critical, sometimes life-saving importance of emotionally-intelligent, awareness-based communication.


Dr. Rosenberg drew on his own painful experiences in racially-divided Detroit and his training in psychology to develop Nonviolent Communication, a particular approach to addressing conflict that emphasizes listening with empathy, naming and expressing feelings in responsible ways, and recognizing our common humanity, even in the midst of our most difficult moments together.

The Skills of Compassion - Mediate Your Life

The Skills of Compassion - Mediate Your Life | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

When:

March 25, 2015 7:30 pm to 
March 25, 2015 9:00 pm


Where:
YogaKula 1700 Shattuck Ave Berkeley, CA 94709


Become the person you want to be, and create the life and world you long for. To do this requires many conversations with yourself and with others in which there is often conflict, struggle, and hurt. The challenges of conflict, however, have the power to lead to growth and transformation, and to new possibilities, if you know how to navigate the stormy seas and rough terrains, and create connection and collaboration.


The focus of this introduction is learning how to return to presence and self-connection when experiencing the fight-or-flight stress response, and respond with the skills of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a “3-chair” model, and “maps” for navigating conversations with yourself and others to contribute to healing and the world you want.

The Purpose of SHAME, The Power of EMPATHY : A Weekend Workshop with Sarah Peyton

The Purpose of SHAME, The Power of EMPATHY : A Weekend Workshop with Sarah Peyton | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

SHAME is a rarely discussed but very common emotion. The intensity of feeling shame can be confusing and overwhelming. The chains of shame can be hard to throw off - they can be woven into our sense of who we are, our thoughts, our breath, our movement through the world. And surprisingly, self-shaming can be one of the ways that we try to support ourselves to belong in our families, our friendships, and our communitie


Working with Sarah in NVC and IPNB classes, groups and year-long programs, or in 1:1 empathy sessions, you will:

  • Experience resonance and learn how it supports fluidity and growth
  • Radically change judgments and self-criticism into delight and connection
  • Watch yourself grow in self-understanding and self-compassion
  • Internalize your own Resonating Self-Witness
  • Nurture and nourish your own capacity for self-care
  • Put down old burdens of self-limiting beliefs and self-hate,
  • Transform entrenched family patterns into freedom with constellation work
  • Integrate cutting edge neuroscience into your work with yourself and others
  • Stay connected with the latest research coming out of social neuroscience labs all over the world

Giraffe Eyes: Observing World Events Through the Lens of NVC | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
Here are some possible points of discussion:

Sharing our pain, our grief, our rage: Letting the unacceptable in.
Dehumanizaton using language, leading to violence: "The only way I can describe it, it looks like a demon, that’s how angry he looked."
Nonviolent protest, civil disobdience and destruction of property: How do we move toward peace, mutual respect and sustainability while including those who protest by destroying property?
Wrong, wrong, wrong! How do we communicate with people who see not only another perspective, but another reality?
Rise up! How can the NVC community play an active role in supporting those in need and creating peaceful social change in situations like Ferguson?

Path of Empathy... Essential Relating
An Introductory Training in Nonviolent Communication

This training is for you if you would enjoy to be supported in deepening self awareness of your inner compassionate self and ways of empowering your authentic self-expression in the relationships that matter most to you.

Empathy as a path to Intimacy...

 

Is there anything more important than a loving intimate relationship to contribute to your well being? It is such a nourishing experience to feel connected to someone you love deeply. When it works, life can seem easy and flowing. You feel the constant support of the love of your partner.

A natural motivation arises to take care of your beloved in the best possible way you can. A level of respect between you means that there is an honouring of each other and what you bring to each other. There is a sense of working together to create something special - to share the joy of your relating with others, so that they too might have a taste of the love you share between you.

Empathy Meter Introduction

Empathy Meter Introduction | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
Empathy is one of the most challenging parts of Nonviolent Communication to teach. I wanted to come up with a way for people to practice empathy responses.


The empathy meter shows my guess as to how it would feel to receive that response. The way I came up with the numbers and emotions is I used the emotional scales to assign a number from 1 to 22 to the emotion the person making the original statement is feeling. I used my own emotion I would be experiencing if I were making that statement. I also added an intensity component to help clarify the feeling.


The goal is to guess which statements will help the person feel better. You will probably notice many of the statements which are commonly used, might lead to the person feeling worse.


Emotions 1


(Joy) ⇒ 7 (Contentment) are positive emotions.8

(Boredom) ⇒ 13

(Doubt) are the milder negative emotions. The stronger negative emotions are 14

(Worry) ⇒ 20

(Jealousy), mostly outward directed. The strongest negative emotions are 21

(Guilt) & 22 (Depression) which are inner directed.

Passing of Marshall Rosenberg the founder of the Center for Nonviolent Communication

Passing of Marshall Rosenberg the founder of the Center for Nonviolent Communication | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

I just saw this message that Marshall Rosenberg, the founder of the Center for Nonviolent Communication had passed. Marshall was a graduate student of Carl Rogers and greatly extended the work, understanding and practice of empathy. Marshall taught the NVC empathy based process to thousands of people and built a thriving community of practice. His students have then gone on to teach NVC to tens of thousands more around the world. see Center for Nonviolent Communications http://j.mp/1zM2Jjr

Dear all,
It is with great emotion that I write to tell you that Marshall Rosenberg passed from this life 3 days ago, on Saturday, February 7th. He passed peacefully at home, with his wife Valentina - who shared the news with me a few minutes ago - and all his children by his side.

I know no way to describe the impact this man had on so many people - for his work and for his being, and for the extraordinary power the balance between these two unleashed. He was a beloved teacher to countless people on every continent, people whose hearts were touched and shone with the possibility his work made tangible

To many of you reading he was also an inspired and inspiring colleague who changed the course of your lives and brought an inestimable sense of meaning and the potential for transformation to every area of your world. And who, at each moment, did this with utmost simplicity, humility and humanness.

In great mourning, and with the most profound reverence and soaring gratitude for the spirit he released in us, and whose light we carry forwards.

Sunday Speaker: Govert van Ginkel "Empathy and you; how to live a balanced life"

Sunday Speaker: Govert van Ginkel "Empathy and you; how to live a balanced life" | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

When we think about empathy, it mostly is about others, but what about you? Do you know what it is to have empathy for yourself?


When our essence is of God and therefor we are inherently good, doesn’t it stand to reason then to look at how we treat ourselves?  I see our journey of life as an inevitable and necessary process of self discovery, perhaps you do too.

We may start out as an empty page but soon the impressions that life makes upon us start to fill the page and in the process we may loose the sense of who we really are.
