'Nonviolent Communication' weekend workshop:

Anger, Fear, Depression and other dear friends: Switzerland

Loving the brilliancy of our unpleasant emotions

08-09 May 2021, Zurich, Switzerland

With Yoram Mosenzon


Pain, Fear, Anger, Guilt, Insecurity, Depression… these feelings are not your favorites aren’t they?

And yet, they are there, they tend to come in different moments and situations.
So why are they there? What is the brilliancy and beauty of those emotions and how could these emotions serve your life and your relationships?

The learned habit

When I have an unpleasant emotion, my habitual way is to go up to my head and think: “I have a problem”, and “I need to do something in order to solve it, to get rid of it”.

The new habit

In my view, this profoundly learned attitude toward the unpleasant emotions is the source of much of the suffering on the planet.
Emotions are a very precise and delicate mechanism that is there to serve life, that is there to bring me closer to my values and lead me to stand firmly for my needs. It is an intelligence that is there, in me, to lead me into the most precious places.
Full heartedly I can say: I love being depressed, I love guilt, I love fear and oh… I love insecurity soooooo much.


This training is dedicated to our delicate relationship with our own emotions, as well as with the emotions of others:
How to allow unpleasant feeling do the work it is there to do – to help me get connected with my life projects life I dream to live?
This weekend is dedicated to trusting your own body to guide your life!
This weekend is a ‘Nonviolent Communication’ training that is inspired by my previous 15 years of dedication to body work (while I was a professional dancer and choreographer)

During this weekend, we will practice:

❀  ‘The beauty of Anger’- enjoying Anger as a beautiful life force that is there to care for our most vulnerable spots and traumas.
❀  ‘Liberating from guilt’- Getting full inner clarity that Guilt does not exist, and letting guilt moment turn into inner conflict of: ‘The Art of Being Torn’.
❀  ‘Fear as a door to my life project’: using my fears to help me firmly connect to my life project and life strength
❀  ‘Empathy in the body’- welcoming unpleasant feelings and meeting their flow in the body
❀  ‘speaking with myself compassionately’: insecurity as a door to the core of our humanity
