Embodying NVC Consciousness Program (ENVC)

"Your challenge is not to keep trying to repair what was damaged; your practice instead is to reawaken what is already wise, strong, and whole within you, to cultivate the qualities of heart and spirit that are available to you in this very moment."
~ Wayne Muller

If you have learned NVC and want to live it more fully in your life, imagine spending 5 glorious days totally immersed in NVC in a beautiful, serene location! Every day you and your mini-community of NVC-ers will learn, share and practice together under the guidance of two Certified NVC Trainers, enhancing and integrating your NVC skills to every aspect of your life.

Empathy buddy walks, inspiring conversation, quiet comfortable environment, yoga ... and NVC in action, 24/7 ... This moment-to-moment experience of 'embodying NVC' will show you how it is possible to live NVC on a daily basis. You will leave refreshed, reinvigorated and confident in your ability to use NVC in any situation.

Along with the ongoing support of this NVC community through mentoring, forums, webinars and more, the Embodying NVC Consciousness experience will be one you will never forget.

"The Embodying NVC retreat was an unexpected gift. For one who has followed a deep spiritual and self enquiry path for many years, I was still shaken to the core, revealing the gems I’d been hiding." Melinda B Paterson ~ Artist

Each 5 Day Embodying NVC Consciousness Retreat includes :

5-day Residential Retreat :
Each 5 Day Program is based on a specific topic, which together create the basis of all of our interactions.

  • My Connection with myself (program closure; last available retreat Feb 2019)
  • My Connection with those intimate to me
  • My Connection with my Power and Purpose in the World

Each is a deep lived experience of Learning and Living from NVC Consciousness and each retreat reinforces each other... there is no set point to start.  Each retreat can also be attended as a Single Retreat.

The retreats include daily structured sessions where we are learning, practicing, and experiencing NVC skills and applying them to our everyday experiences.   It is led by CNVC Certified Trainers.

Community :
During the retreats we are together living from the awareness and skills of NVC by simply using NVC and this consciousness with each other and supporting each other to use the skills... both during sessions and when we are relaxing.  So you are directly experiencing what it is to live from this place of non-judgment so you can take this back to your everyday lives.

Plenty of One on One Support :
The team is available to work with you one-on-one in areas where you may require personalised support, making learning NVC easy.

Daily Empathy Sessions :
Every day you are nourished by spacious sessions where you go for Empathy Buddy walks, to practice giving and receiving empathy.

Fun and Nurturing:
Learning NVC is not meant to be serious!  Yoga, massages, empathy buddy walks, and other activities all create not just deep learning but FUN!
