This is an advanced training in NVC

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a an approach that makes us aware to the way we use language — not just in how we express ourselves, but also in how we listen and the meaning we make of what people say. With the help of NVC, we can transform dis-connecting language and include them in our interactions in a form that connect us. We are not going to blame someone for blaming us, put a label on someone that labels us, but we try to hear beyond the words, transform what we hear and include the core of this in our communication.

A committed practice of NVC takes on-going long-term learning. With immersion we can change the deeply wired habits of language that most of us carry with us since childhood. 

Learning new ways of communicating - inwards and out - is something that takes time and choice to integrate. This program is a chance to integrate need-awareness on many levels in your life with special and direct focus on where you really want to grow.

 The program will help you integrate the NVC approach in your everyday life and is designed to help you actively make use of the principles and tools of NVC. It will be focused on specific and important relationships where you are challenged as we know that if you can grow in this kind of interactions you can bring it with you else-where.


We meet online (if you have close-by NVC-practitioners that is part of this program, you can meet in person for the smaller group work.) You are asked to use at least 2 (preferably 4) hours per week for the training for one year. Some weeks are going to be more intense than others.

You'll get the chance to practice with others who have at least 12 days of previous NVC-training.

  • How shame, guilt and anger affect your core relationships. The Compass or Needs; transforming shame attacks, expanding our life-space, embracing vulnerability, sensitivity and dignity.

  • Needs-based eating. Eating is something we do every day so it is a natural super-opportunity for us to become more aware or of needs - moment to moment. Practise, reflection and action.

  • How to more gratitude and happiness into your life. With the latest research on how we can grow gratitude and happiness in our lives we make a plan on how to actively bring this into our lives.

  • Key differentiations and how their understanding can be actively used in concrete situations. NVC is often taked about as the language of the heart and this may make us believe that thinking, focus and mental clarity is not important when it comes to connection. We show you ways to integrate warmth with mental focus, care with healthy boundaries, empathic listning with action and much more.

  • Empathy - the jewel of the NVC toolbox. How to invite it, nurture it, use it (and not overuse it) - making it a central part of our daily lives.

  • Choices - how to get the process of choice to become a joyful process of ease - taking care of our brains and nervsystem as we go. Inner Chooser/inner educator work, enemy image process etc.

Challenge group

A group of 3-5 people who meet regularly - online or physically (2-4 hours = a minimum of 44 hours.) You work on material you get from us in a workbook, for example:

Shame integration, Empathy, inner choser/inner critic process, enemy image process, self-expression and requests, how to build trust.


Included in the training

  • A unique workbook with structure and support for learning and practice.

Time plan

We start with weekly meetings in the large group. From there we form what we call challenge groups as this is where you work with your challenges. In these groups you work with empathy exchanges, role-plays, written exercises, sorting out key differentiations, transforming shame etc. During the year we meet 22 times in the large group with place for feedback, questions and more practise.

A great way to integrate NVC in all areas of your life.
