4 Day Living NVC Retreat

Thurs 10 - Sun 13 June 2021 - Online
If you have learned NVC and want to live it more fully in your life . . .

Would you like to move beyond the “theoretical knowing” of NVC, and have it as your primary nature?

Would you like to be able to use this way of relating, in your toughest relationships, and not lose yourself in emotional “freeze” or “reactivity”?

Do you want your children to have role-models of emotional self-awareness so they can have rich relationships?

Would you like to be really clear on your boundaries and able to say “yes” or “no” with care and clarity?

During these 4 days, we will be immersing in the consciousness of NVC and living from these NVC principles in how we interact together.  We will be practicing NVC in exercises and building on our understanding of NVC through strengthening our NVC skills…. All from the richness of safe and trusting community.

Shari Elle - Communications Trainer

This retreat has 2 focuses:

  1. To enrich your relationship with yourself
    (How do I have clarity and awareness of what is true or “alive” for me - my needs and what I care about?) And
  2. To enrich my relationships with those I love
    (With this loving self awareness, how do I communicate with those close to me, clearly and lovingly, in a way that honours us both? And how do I deeply hear what is going on for them, even when I am triggered?)
  3. To deeply learn and embody the skills and practices of NVC in my life.

These 4 days will be highly nourishing, both physically and emotionally. They are also highly experiential.

We will be in a community of support and non-judgment.  We will have yoga and empathy walks and connect with nature.  And we will be deeply learning these powerful skills whilst receiving nurturing and gently releasing patterns, which we may have held onto for years.

You will leave refreshed, reinvigorated and confident in your ability to use NVC in any situation.

All this will be under the care and guidance of Shari Elle, and an experienced assistant trainer.

This experience is one you are likely to remember forever.

There is this spaciousness since the retreat. I feel so alive! And there are no judgments popping up in my head. It's really quiet inside me and I am automatically going to empathy and honesty in a very authentic way.
Truthfully I thought that NVC was a nice idea and that I would maybe make some progress by practising regularly.  Now though, I can see I am really going to be able to live this in my life!! In fact I AM living this now!
I have done so many courses, intense psychotherapy and psychological work and there has been nothing as transformative as the ENVC Programme - the retreats and the coaching especially."
Annette Lewington, Participant

I got closure of so many past experiences because of completion and fulfilment of so many unmet needs which I carried with me throughout my life, now met in the safe, secure, stable, empathic, caring, nurturing, tender environment that I have experienced in the NVC retreats.
This has been the most enriching program I have experienced and I recommend it to everyone who is willing and prepared to live truthfully, honestly and authentically and wishes to connect empathically with themselves and others they care about.
Lynette Howearth, Participant

I certainly got the opportunities and learning to deepen my NVC consciousness and abilities. I am more than satisfied with what I received. I continue to be impressed by the level of teaching provided, and the amount of thought and consideration that goes into making the retreat the best it can be.
The training met what I was looking for: a level of challenge that required another level of NVC ability/facility of me.
Genevieve Gibbs, Participant,

“I started on this journey because I wanted to connect more with those closest to me, and I realised that I can only start when I connect with myself first. I realised I wanted an outcome that was not achievable until I connected with myself first. Since doing the retreat last June I definitely have more consciousness about my responses. I am prepared to go more sloooowly, and that was a big one for me, because I was always interrupting, talking loud, and forcing my point of view. So going slow, taking time, connecting with myself and expressing that what I truly want is connection, is what has changed my life. When I get that about myself, then I can connect with the other.”
Alan Kras, Participant
