Third and final discussion of Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life. In Chapters 10-13, Rosenberg discusses how to express anger fully using the NVC method, when to use protective force (rather than punishment) to prevent harm, how to liberate ourselves from cultural, familial, and educational conditioning through hearing our own feelings and needs, and how to express appreciation without using judgments.

Today is our first discussion of Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall B. Rosenberg. In chapters 1-5, Rosenberg explains how NVC guides us in reframing how we express ourselves and hear others. Instead of habitual, automatic reactions, our words become conscious responses based firmly on awareness of what we are perceiving, feeling, and wanting. Join us in relearning more conscious methods of communicating!
