At our second evening of sharing Victoria’s April Awareness campaign for NVC as an experience for shifting a planet into peace, we had the pleasure of having local Victorian Laurel Collins as guest presenter. Laurel chose the topic, “Beyond right and wrongdoing, ” as the focus of her presentation.
Laurel shared her unique experience and passion behind her own connection to Nonviolent Communication and why she was choosing to commit another 4 to 5 years of study to write her thesis with a focus on this dialogue process and consciousness.
She successfully expanded and deepened our understanding of the process that Judi Morin began last week introducing to us in this style of communicating. The take away from last week was the stories we tell ourselves in our thinking process that keeps us from connecting to each other. Each person has their own unique perspective and Judi was able to demonstrate this through an exercise. Her role play was to demonstrate how these internal arguments play in our head and keep us from knowing what is truly going on for us and expressing in a way to be heard.
