Description

Nonviolent Communication and body movement with Jana Burger

May 25th-27th

Nonviolent communication is about dealing with the ways of managing relationships through authentic expression, connection to ourselves and others. We will explore authenticity, vulnerability and intimacy through the best instrument we have, our body, and vice versa.

Based on Nonviolent Communication principles, the session will explore verbal and non-verbal communication, connection and awareness. Based on a bit of theory in spoken word, we will then explore the topic through practical exercises that you can use with groups or yourself. Jana is also a theater practitioner and pedagogue so that there is a wide variety of exercises.

We will learn and share basic principles of Nonviolent Communication: self-empathy and embodied experience of feelings, empathic listening and connection, clear and honest self-expression.

All human beings have the same, equal needs. We will take the path of finding those needs, explore how each of us can contribute to a connection in any given situation.

We will work individually and in groups. We will take the path of co-creation. We will face conflict as the source or "power with" strategy.

We are "mechanized" to enter into contacts mentally and verbally. That is why we will look for ways to dismantle our brain and our body. Jana believes that our body (who have all leg very well socialized) are always playing for us, but we miss to hear it. We will work through the steps of NVC (observations, feelings, needs, requests) and naturally connect the two spheres, the body and mind.

IMPORTANT - You do not have any previous dance or NVC knowledge. Of course, it will be more interesting if you do. What you might want to consider is whether you would like to continue with your weekend together and share with friends or colleagues. It is a very sweet and stretchy method for working in groups, with youth, inclusion, social work, any forms or group work.

Facilitator: Jana Burger. She is a specialist in Intercultural Communication and Theater Pedagogy (University of Ljubljana / University of Miami). She lives in-between Berlin and Ljubljana; and works as a facilitator or Participatory Art Methods in areas of conflict resolution, mediation, youth work and body movement.

She is CNVC certified by Marshall Rosenberg (The Center for Nonviolent Communication) and trained in the Theater of the Oppressed techniques.
