Embodying the spirit of Nonviolent Communication

Juni 23 @ 13:00 - Juni 25 @ 17:00

Embodying the spirit of Nonviolent Communication

Through the portals of our physicality to a deeper integration of the flow of life
– with the approach of Contact Improvisation

Nonviolent Communication is for me not just another communication model to sort out our relationships, but a choice how I want to spend this experience of human life. It is a choice to acknowledge the interconnectedness of it all, a choice to open up to the evolutionary flow of Life, a choice to extend beyond the known self, a choice to embrace it all.

So the challenge (and the promise) of NVC may be not merely how to intellectually solve the puzzle of our relationship, but how to fully embody the spirit of connection – be it the self-connection with our deepest authenticity, or the fully honest and compassionate connection with others, or even letting go and let ourselves fall into the flow of Life…

In this fully practical and experiential weekend retreat we will use our bodies as the portals to a deeper integration of life, and explore:

  • how our empathic receiving can move from a mechanical activity into the magical following of the unfoldment of Life in another human being
  • how to stay connected with life in us, even in challenging
  • how to transform the on-going fight with life into a mysterious dance of life
  • how to integrate all the aspects of the flow of life, although initially perceived as unpleasant
  • what keeps us from shining in our full authenticity and deepest integrity
  • how to find incredible strength of full authenticity within the space of sheer nakedness and vulnerability.

While most of the work in this retreat will indeed include movement of our bodies and meeting others in the space of movement and physicality, no prior experience of contact improvisation or any dance method is needed, nor are you expected to have any additional physical abilities beyond standing and walking.
