Quote: "If you surf, you'd be better at empathy." Marshall Rosenberg

Quote: "If you surf, you'd be better at empathy."  Marshall Rosenberg | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

"Empathy, I would say is presence. Pure presence to what is alive in a person at this moment, bringing nothing in from the past. The more you know a person, the harder empathy is. The more you have studied psychology, the harder empathy really is. Because you can bring no thinking in from the past.

 

If you surf, you'd be better at empathy because you will have built into your body what it is about. Being present and getting in with the energy that is coming through you in the present. It is not a mental understanding."

Marshall Rosenberg

 

"I compared empathy to surfing. I said that empathy is like riding on a wave; it's about getting in touch with a certain energy. But the energy is a divine energy that's alive in every person, at every moment.

 

Unfortunately, many of us are blocked from that divine energy by the way we've been taught to think. But for me, empathy is getting with that energy that's coming through the other person. It's a divine experience. I feel as if I'm really in a flow with divine energy. And when two people connect in that way, any kind of conflict can be resolved so that everybody's needs get met.

When we teach people to empathize with people from other cultures who are behaving in a ways we do not like, we find ways of resolving our differences peacefully. So empathy is a beautiful experience when we have it. And it's powerful to work toward peace in diplomatic relationships based on empathy, not on our usual adversarial tactics.

 

Now when we can empathize with what's alive in another person, it's amazing how much healing can go on. Unfortunately, there's a lot of healing that needs to happen in the world because of the pain people are in, and I'm often called to help individuals who have been victimized by people with different religious beliefs."

Tragically, one of the rarest commodities in our culture is empathy. People are hungry for empathy, They don't know how to ask for it....

Is it possible for others to have a different truth? How do I see the relationship between their truths and mine? How important is it that others agree with my teachings on NVC?

Fearless Compassion: The Gift of Empathy

Fearless Compassion: The Gift of Empathy | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | 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~

' There is an attention to everything when you are empathizing. For example, in discussing an idea in business, if I’m paying attention to you fully, I get way more than just your ideas. I might hear hesitancy or enthusiasm when you talk about the idea, and if so, I want to hear about that as well.'

NVC Mediation — Mediate your life

NVC Mediation — Mediate your life | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

To be truly at ease with yourself and those around you is transformative. The first step is to approach every conflict – whether internal or external – as an opportunity. When we understand and communicate our needs with clarity, and with deep empathy for the universality of those needs, conflict leads to connection. The illusion of separation from self and others crumbles. Finally, we are at home in the world.

The Center for Nonviolent Communication: An International Organization

The Center for Nonviolent Communication:   An International Organization | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence-- the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart.

NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that violent strategies—whether verbal or physical—are learned behaviors taught and supported by the prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs.
