Compassion is an essential lesson that Jesus embodied and taught. We strive to discover ways in which we can more fully live with compassion in our own lives and wish to cultivate this along with others who also desire to live more compassionately.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence – the natural state of compassion when non violence is present in the heart as originally taught by Marshal Rosenberg. NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that violent strategies – whether verbal or physical – are learned behavior taught and supported by a prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions is a strategy to meet one or more of these needs. People who are practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.
