2-day Education for life with NVC - Kirsten Kristensen

Deepening - Education for Life with NVC

The years that children spend in school are precious, so let’s use them well and prepare our children for a world where appreciation of diversity and cross-cultural cooperation and living democratic values is key to a peaceful life on earth.

The purpose of this workshop
To give teachers the skills needed in order to model and contribute to next generation being better prepared for a life in partnership instead of domination, a life in cooperation instead of competition, a life in peace instead of war. One key skill in this work is integrating solid nonviolent communication skills that enables us to build bridges instead of trenches.

The content of this workshop
During the three days we will work with the following topics:

Get clearer on our own vision and dream for our work with students, so that we can develop practical steps we can take towards our dream.
Practicing NVC in a balanced dialog, where the focus is on leading and to be led while maintaining grounding in needs.
Get clarity about our own NVC-support system, so that we can meet our students with enough inner resources to welcome their inner leadership.
Creating a plan for do-able next steps in implementing NVC values in our schools.
Supporting and modeling a shift from polarization to appreciating our polarity. This requires us to be grounded in our own values while extending openness and curiosity toward others.
Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the skills to go closer and get creative. We will introduce skills to handle differences without creating enemy images and polarization.
Exploring possibilities in decision making in which all needs matter.
Exploring how to make peace with the gap between our daily reality with its shortcomings and our long-term goals of a world that works for all.
Participants will have the opportunity to work from own examples and learn how to contribute to development based on dialogue and cooperation.
The content and form of the training are designed aligned with the vision of NVC. By modeling this vision in practice we hope to offer practical inspiration of ways to integrate this vision in your own practice.
