NVC for Flowing Relationships
A Residential Nonviolent Communication© Retreat
June 6 - 10, 2018 Wednesday 6p dinner to Sunday after 1p lunch
Are you longing for the essential NVC tools, practice, and capacities to create and sustain joyful, flowing relationships? We combine fun and deep, heartfelt learning into capacities you can take home.
During this retreat you’ll have the opportunity to work through unresolved upsets, and practice the difficult conversations that could bring relief. Whether you have stuck places at work, at home, with children, friends, or with intimate partners, you will return to your relationships ready to shift old stuck energy and experience sweet movement in connection, even with yourself.
This is a unique opportunity to support your well-being in a natural paradise! You will be nurtured by gentle people serving delicious vegetarian meals, hiking options in an old-growth forest, and many choices for soaking in hot springs overlooking a natural meadow and mighty river.
Liv Monroe and Fred Sly, Certified Trainers for The Center for Nonviolent Communication
Fred has been learning and teaching NVC since 1999. Along the way he earned a PhD in Psychology addressing the reactive basis of violence and how empathy promotes peace and accountability. Additionally, Fred was instrumental in creating and directing the Oregon Prison Project (OPP) that currently offers classes in four Oregon adult facilities, one post-release program, and one youth authority facility as well. Fred also started and grew Rose City NVC, a Portland area teaching organization currently offering NVC classes to individuals, organizations, couples, families, and businesses in Oregon. Fred is currently retired from both OPP and Rose City NVC in order to work with those struggling with the symptoms of psychological trauma, veterans with PTSD, prisons systems that want to establish and grow NVC programs, and those wanting to create cooperative community. Along with Liv Monroe, Fred offers an annual NVC retreat at Breitenbush in early June.
