What is the Soul Speech Program?
Soul Speech Program Part 1
Soul Speech is a 4-month immersion in the practices of Nonviolent Communication, with a deep dive into self inquiry, embodiment and being the change you want to be in the world.
The depth of this work is a radical paradigm shift with significant realignments in how you see and interact with the world.
It is an opportunity to step into self responsibility for your experience in life and to be of service to others with the gift of empathy, presence and self empowerment.
It includes an embodied exploration of what triggers you in life. You will increase your awareness of how you habitually react to triggers and expand your ability to respond consciously to them.
Retreats include somatic processes and the use of movement to connecting with feelings and shift emotional states.
Soul Speech Program Part 2
Soul Speech Part 2 is an opportunity to learn how to take the NVC consciousness and tool kit into a work environments and places where you have a leadership or coaching role. NVC is being used around the world to mediate and facilitate and is used in many different context from the classroom, to the reconciliation of post war environments, to community planning process, in the prisons and beyond.
Some of the skills you will learn include conflict management, decision-making, facilitation, reconciliation and tools for guiding people through the NVC process in a one-on-one setting.
The skills learned in Part 2 will provide skills to help friends, colleagues and loved ones go through difficult times and can transform your relationship with people on the job. They are also pivotal skills for stepping into greater levels of collaborative leadership in all aspects of life.
Retreat #1 (Sept 9-11): Self: authenticity, hidden parts, self-judgement, feelings, needs, taking stock, making choices, life decisions.
Retreat #2 (Nov 11-13): Relationships with Others, shedding blame and judgement.
Retreat #3 (January 13-15): Depth work and creating a community learning lab of our own inter-personal dynamics.
Soul Speech participants connect on a weekly basis throughout the 4 months.
Zoom Conference Calls: 2 hours every two weeks explore specific aspects of the self and NVC, while providing opportunities for regular practice, processing of life experiences and connecting as a community.
Regular Practice: You will work in long-term pairs and triads to practice your empathy skills and to work through day-to-day unfolding examples. Participants are encouraged to schedule these empathy calls for the 'off week' between the video calls.
