Nonviolent Communication and Meditation Retreat


with Louise Romain & Catherine Eveillard
March 9 / 5:00 AM - March 16 / 6:00 AM

 


 


 


The art of living in harmony with yourself and others


Developed by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Nonviolent Communication reminds us of what is essential in human interaction and helps us improve the quality of our exchanges.


During this retreat, we will learn how to "decode" what others really mean and understand the meaning behind their words or behaviors. Discover how to formulate with precision what you truly wish to express and learn how to develop a language that allows a constructive and effective dialogue.


Exceptionally, the teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche will come to support this course, mainly in the form of guided meditation. The practice of meditation invites us to accept and manage difficult emotions, such as guilt and anger, and welcome them as positive elements through which we can learn and grow.


This retreat will encourage us to develop real exchanges that lead towards greater cooperation and help us overcome conflicts.


While learning how to listen to others with openness and expressing ourselves clearly and coherently, we open a sincere, authentic and respectful dialogue. We get back in touch with our inner resources and develop the confidence to regain control over our lives, in interdependence with others.
