Walk Your Talk

A week-long intensive “train the trainer” workshop

23 - 29 april 2021

with Liv Larsson & Kay Rung​​


Nonviolent Communication is so much more than a theory to be mastered. It is something to be lived and used, rather than to only be talked about. 

General info

Nonviolent Communication is so much more than a theory to be mastered. It is something to be lived and used, rather than to only be talked about. NVC contain some very practical principles and tools that can be used in all communication between humans. These tools can be practiced and honed but they are not the goal. Connection is the goal. Most of the parameters in an interaction can only be guessed at beforehand. Every moment of connection has parts that are unique and that is what makes it challenging but also fun and alive. One part of walking your talk when it comes to NVC is to shift from performing to relating. Another thing is to focus on connection before focusing on correction.

Sharing NVC is learning to “dance this dance”. 


What will you get:

  • Tools and exercises to share NVC with others.​

  • Practice on how to walk your talk; finding ways to live in integrity, honesty and empathy as you share NVC, lead trainings and mediate.

  • An understanding of how groups mature and develpe. What we can do to support growth.

  • Tools to help people move from dependency, through independency to interdependence.

  • How to create your own exercises.

  • Honing your empathy skills. Discerning when it´s time for empathy and when its time for something else.

  • Become part of an international comunity.

  • Time with two NVC trainers who have led trainings on NVC for full time the last 20 years.

  • Knowledge on how to build and maintain trust.

  • Relating to money, working sustainably​
