A group training experience gives you an opportunity to interact and explore communication styles in practice. Enriching you with skills and attitudes that help to address conflict and approach difficult but much needed conversations. For greater connection with yourself and others around you.

The training is based on the principles of Nonviolent Communication integrating:

  • Consciousness

    supporting a life of compassion, collaboration, courage, and authenticity

  • Language

    understanding how words contribute to connection or distance

  • Communication Skills

    knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even if in disagreement, and how to move towards solutions that work for all

  • Means of Influence

    sharing “power with others” rather than using “power over others”

The training is provided by Pati Bielak-Smith, a certified CNVC trainer.

"The workshop was very experiential so I could use theory in practice and systematise my knowledge. Pati has created atmosphere of openness and introduced clear rules, so it was easy for us to connect with one another and express easily what we were working on.

Pati was very natural and authentic and at the same time she didn't take over the whole group with her presence. She was there for every participant and made sure each one of us felt 'important'."

A school teacher

"I loved experiencing Pati's teaching, she seemed quite at ease, and totally confident of her material. She also 'looked after' all levels of familiarity with NVC and everyone's needs. She kept everyone involved and absorbed, often splitting us into small groups, which helped those who didn't know the others. She used the time very well too."
