I am so incredibly grateful for the course. I have applied NVC to my relationship and can see that it helped immensely. I have used it with my kids and today with my daughter when it was just about to get out of hand I used NVC and it worked and gave her the space she needed. I feel lighter. I feel a different energy, a shift inside, an understanding I was missing. I have done many many therapy courses, about the past, but for me, this weekend, was exactly what I was actually looking for. I don't need to be busy with the past if I can be authentic about what I am feeling right now!
Feeling so bloody alive! Doing the course in Nonviolent Communication with Yoram Mosenzon, I have never been so alive in my life. This is me, utterly, totally me, naked in front of you. Over the sessions with Yoram, I have had the opportunity to dive into me and discover myself. And there is nothing that I can think of in this now, that is more precious to me than this discovery! It is my re-birth!
Wow thank you so much Yoram for giving me this insight and opportunity to let my child cry. I am really convinced now that she can release by crying. Since I let her cry she falls a sleep again by herself, also without crying. She sleeps longer. And I can even enjoy the crying sessions. It is a beautiful even spiritual experience. Because it requires full presents and allowing what is to be experienced. It is NVC for babies. Now all other methods to stop her from crying seem like killing and ignoring her emotions.
I loved the last meeting. It surprises me how many new insights I get every time. It's all so simple and logical and above all loving! I'm so excited to learn this language of the benefit of all, this language of the inner child, this language of love...
Learning NVC: I got better at expressing myself authentically- being honest and catching in the moment what is going on for me I’m more connected to my needs in expressing myself in my life with my husband and child and at the same time give them more space to connect with their needs and feelings and hear those.
I was afraid of showing myself. I want to tell you how you made me feel so very welcome in the course. It did strike me that I have lived most of my life with my voice not being in the room. After the course I felt renewed, refreshed and energized by what I had learned. I have been incorporating the things you taught us into my daily life and realize that you were right: this is the answer to 99% of all conflicts. It is the lovely and gentle answer to communicating with humans. I feel so grateful for the experience.
I came to learn NVC because the endless fights with my girlfriend, brought us to the border of separation. During the workshop, I learned that though I spend hours listening to her, I actually never really HEAR her. What I heard was my own head telling me how wrong she is and that I want her to change! Now, instead of what’s wrong with her, I hear what she is actually feeling and needing, and that bring us to a place where we start finally hearing each other. This is a new place for us to be where we are much more connected than ever before.
I learned to see that in each moment I have a choice- how do I respond. NVC teaches to see that no matter how people speak to me, it is up to me how I interpret these words I hear. This is an enormous power.
I have the trust how to deal with sticky conversations, while in the past I would have want to run away from, now I feel trust I have the tools and the skills to be, finally, fully honest about it while also leading it to a place of connection instead of disconnection.
Celebration! I immediately took the consent process home. This is the skill I’ve been looking for to practice for so long! It always takes ages for us when we need to make a decision together as a family. Monday we wanted to have a family activity and I applied what we have been learning. I loved how my oldest daughter picked up on the idea and became facilitator. ? After a dialogue she suddenly said: let’s go to the Griftpark, so dad can skate on the halfpipe, I can look at the animals and my young brother can play. You can go there on your bicycle, my brother in the seat, and me and dad can go on skates. Everyone had a yes!
Today I would like to express my gratitude to you for this teachings you offered me the last 5 months. If I believed, during the first 3 months that to go through hell watching all my ghosts pass by- I could not imagine that facing my jackals would bring me such freedom! I can feel this freedom everyday. And above all, I feel it in my body- it gives my movement strength and authenticity. If I always moved in order to keep myself alive, now it's something else that is happening: I can put myself in danger and go down ever deeper, contact new parts of life and play with them !!!! Moving toward people is now possible. I have confidence in knowing how to take care of myself, and my limits are no longer an obstacle but subject to creativity. And I accept easily the other as she or he is! It's simply HUGE !!!!!
Yoram is an incredibly good empathetic listener, someone who has made me feel safe and at ease to openly express my feelings (something I’ve always found difficult) without fear of judgement. Yoram is helping me to learn how to connect to my feelings and to express them effectively to other people, especially my wife I remember that after the first session I thought something like: “Wow! We are married for a few years now, but this is the first time that I can really hear what matters to her!” I felt more connected to her than I have ever before. I have faith again that we can overcome any challenge in our relationship and prosper together as a loving connected couple.
