'Neues Leben in eine Beziehung bringen'

2015 October 14th - 16th (Deutsche sprache)

Bridget and Ruud, a married couple who are both experienced NVC trainers (certified with CNVC), will share with you insights, processes and tools that they use to encourage new life to continually emerge in their relationship.

This event is suitable for couples who are both open to exploring and experiencing a positive shift in their relationship, using NVC-based and other processes and tools, which you will experience together with your partner. 

At least one in the couple has experience with Nonviolent Communication (NVC).

We will jointly create an atmosphere of care and trust to explore our relationship journeys in a collaborative environment, sharing our highs, lows and shifts!

At this fascinating, powerful and transformational event you’ll explore how to:

  • Make sure you have the conversations that are important to you
  • Handle friction, conflict and other challenges creatively
  • Balance freedom and responsibility in your relationship
  • Use NVC without triggering each other
  • What does “I love you” really mean
  • And much more!
