Awakening Compassion
(Learning Nonviolent Communication in a zen environment)

24-29 of june 2020 (5 nights, 6 days)
Costs: 6500 kr (€ 640) based on twin sharing accommodation, additional 800 kr for singleroom

In this intensive retreat we will be working according the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process as developed by Marshall Rosenberg. With NVC as a basis, we will explore and integrate the modalities of the well-known "Internal family systems (IFS)” process. IFS is an interactive process that helps us to look at different parts of our mind, to recognize conflicts between these parts, to communicate empathically with them and to restore internal harmony. The connections between NVC, IFS and Zen Buddhism will lead us to a process of awakening compassion in ourselves and in others. The retreat will be an eye opener with deep insights, to prevent conflicts, to heal personal pain and relationships and to live a life from inter-connectedness. In the morning and evening we will practice zen meditation. This retreat is suitable for those who have attended at least an NVC basics training, but also for newcomers, as the first day will be an onboarding day for newcomers to NVC. The retreat will be led by Ruud Baanders, a certified NVC trainer and Ch'an teacher (Chinese Zen).
You will receive an NVC training certificate to award you for completion of the retreat.
