What is Nonviolent Communication (NVC)?

    New academic year at Art School in Budapest is approaching. While being busy with preparations and planning of  the courses, I thought that saying a few words about what nonviolent communication is might give an insight into  the basic principles of the school. The text below is adopted from the official web site of The Center for Nonviolent Communication ( www.cnvc.org )
      NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature. It also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs. With NVC we learn to hear our own deeper needs and those of others. Through its emphasis on deep listening—to ourselves as well as others—NVC helps us discover the depth of our own compassion. This language reveals the awareness that all human beings are only trying to honor universal values and needs, every minute, every day.
   Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence- the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart.  It reminds us what we already instinctively know about how good it feels to authentically connect to another human being.
    The form is simple, yet powerfully transformative

   Through the practice of NVC, we can learn to clarify what we are observing, what emotions we are feeling, what values we want to live by, and what we want to ask of ourselves and others. We will no longer need to use the language of blame, judgment or domination and we can experience the deep pleasure of contributing to each others' well being.
   People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution. 
   The NVC community is active in over 65 countries around the globe.
   “Freedom is the ability to pause between stimulus and response. And in the pause choose.” (Rollo May)
