NVC & Centring Justice: Distinguishing between need & Strategies

September 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

NVC offers a tool for compassionate connection. Communicational structures focus on a more easy flow of empathy, mutual care, awareness, and emotional health. A sensed relief through eased tensions and a safe reassuring space full of trust and confidentiality is built. In this space, especially the invisible dynamics of dominance and oppression can be transformed without nurturing further enemy or victim images. We pass on mutual listening and reflection skills to cultivate a felt sense of justice for all people around the globe inside XR. Our aim is that within the community everyone can have their vulnerability be seen and accepted while experiencing themselves as co-creators for safety for us all. By strengthening our deep listening muscles we cultivate peaceful and compassionate alternatives to exploitation and destruction towards our own selves, other living beings, and the whole globe.
