on-line role plays

FREE.  every 3rd Thursday of the month,  7-8:30 pm EST 

Experience transformation, clarity, and support through the power of role play!

Role play is an ideal way to practice those hard-to-have conversations in a safe environment. It provides a rich opportunity to process an issue from various perspectives and discover what really resonates for you. Even exploring the persona of the “other” person can have a profound impact, helping us to practice that high-level objective approach NVC teaches. Come work through difficult conversations and attain clarity on your feelings and needs. Connect with your next step through interactive role play.

on-line Practice Group

FREE.  EVery Tuesday,  3 – 5 pm EST 

For people who are in recovery, are close to people living with addictions or are connected with Samadhi – a Buddhist recovery center in Kingston, NY.  
With Nonviolent Communication (NVC) we learn to hear our own deeper needs and those of others. Through its emphasis on deep listening, to ourselves as well as others, NVC helps us discover the depth of our own compassion. This language reveals the awareness that all human beings are only trying to honor universal values and needs, every minute, every day. NVC can be seen as both a spiritual practice that helps us see our common humanity, using our power in a way that honors everyone’s needs, and a concrete set of skills which help us create life-serving families and communities. The form is simple, yet powerfully transformative. 
Facilitated by Corinne Mol – other community members facilitate when Corinne is away.

Would love to form a group of committed practitioners to practice NVC skills as taught by John Kinyon in his Mediate Your Life Program. This includes, but is not limited to: Interpersonal Mediation, Enemy Image Process, Mourn/Celebrate/Learn and Chooser – Educator Process. Some are internal processes while others are between two parties.  I envision us meeting once a month, on a Saturday, in New Paltz. If interested, please contact me – would love to hear your thoughts and needs, Ingrid.
