|Cultivating Curiosity: A Passion for Making Mistakes|
by Sura Hart
The topic of cultivating curiosity came alive for me today because I was spending the afternoon with my seven month old grandson, Gio. Nothing lights my fire like hanging out with a child. It reminds me of when my daughters were his age. I would watch, in awe, of our insatiable curiosity as human beings and our joy in learning.
Living Radical Self-Compassion
A workshop with Mary MacKenzie, Co-Founder NVC Academy
"Many of us have received little or no training in expressing our feelings. We have been taught to focus more on other people than ourselves. Rather than noticing how we feel in a relationship, we focus our attention on wondering if the other person enjoys it. Rather than noticing how we feel about our work performance, we wonder what our boss thinks of it. This lack of attention to our own feelings tends to keep us disconnected from ourselves and creates confusion. When we shift our focus to our own feelings and needs, we connect back to ourselves and receive clarity about what we need to be happy in the moment." Mary MacKenzie

|Leveraging Your Influence|
Delve deeply into the practice of living the principles of NVC by using NVC as the "organizing principle" for our work in the world.
