Judgments disguised as Feelings – what are ‘enemy images’? Compassionate / Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
In this interactive session you will identify words that are used to express feelings, but that are in fact descriptions of a thought. When we use words such as ‘abandoned’ or ‘let down’, we are likely to stimulate conflict and stay in the victim trap. It can be empowering to drop these words, and move towards the connection we long for.
Join Irma and Filipa to explore this concept and learn how to translate thoughts into precious feelings, so we can be more resourced and resilient.
I am a CNVC certified Nonviolent Communication trainer with a passion for authentic and honest conversation. Living in community with seven households has helped me grow and learn. I have come to realise that so many of our actions involve communication… with ourselves and with others. My areas of interest are: Mediation/Conflict Resolution, Parenting, Community Living, Relationships, Social Change and Healthcare.
I offer workshops, retreats and one-on-one sessions.
