Help!– Why Can't I Ask for What I Want? | Sunday, 16. August 2020

Many of us have learned how to make a request using NVC. What is it that gets in the way of doing it?

About this Event

Presented by Barbra Esher, Certified Nonviolent Communication Instructor,

Assisted by Chris Hartstein and Jeannie Anderson

Zoom link sent with registration. Recording sent to all registered.

Have you ever realized how much more likely you are to get something if you ask for it?

In my life, I know that people really enjoy contributing as much as I do, so what is it that gets in the way of me asking for help? Why does it feel so vulnerable?

In this session, we will explore how it feels to receive the gift of being able to make a clear, doable request as well as the core beliefs that may keep us from asking for what we want. We will do a group exercise and work in pairs.

You will dance out of this workshop with:

· Knowledge of our habits of asking and why they don’t always work

· An awareness of the beliefs that hold us back from making requests and ways of having more choice

· An understanding of the components of making a request and why each part is important

More InformationThis event occurs monthly on the third Sunday to support NVC understanding and practice.

We welcome new participants at any level. It’s fun when a ‘newbie’ comes and we, ‘newbies’ not so long ago, suddenly see that we’ve learned something important we can pass on, at the same time deepening our understanding of new contexts. If you're already skilled in NVC, we would enjoy sharing support and companionship.

$$ info: The requested fee is $20-$40 per person. Click here if the cost would keep you from coming. Sustainability is important to us. Service is even more so, which we can't do unless you show up!
