Communication. It’s something we do every day of our lives; with family, neighbors, co-workers, strangers. It’s often reflexive; we don’t always pay a great deal of attention to what we’re saying or how we say it. After all we’re just talking, or tweeting, or emailing. We do it all the time. So what’s the big deal?
When we communicate we have the power to inspire, to inform, to captivate and, all too often, to hurt: to hurt others or to hurt ourselves. In the past decades, we have learned that violence is not confined to physical actions but can also be a part of how we communicate.
The really good news is that each of us can learn how to communicate in non violent, compassionate and effective ways that can improve our personal relationships and, by extension, the world around us. This morning, my guest, Sea Aviar, an NVC practitioner, and I are going to explore Non Violent Communication or NVC.
