Come and join in the discussion at the Nonviolent / Compassionate Communication group!

After reading the book Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B Rosenberg, I’m very taken with his ideas about Nonviolent or Compassionate Communication. I can see that they can give us useful skills in dealing with our every day lives and improve the quality of our lives and the lives of those around us, when we have a go at applying his techniques.

He basically provides tools and guidelines that assist us in our everyday lives to gain more well-being. I’m finding the tools are very useful and have already used them to reduce the conflict in my life and also reduce my taking things personally and am developing an ability to be more objective in otherwise painful situations.

Please come and have a look at the group, I’ve started a discussion with the title – What is Nonviolent Communication? Where I have detailed an overview of the tools and guidelines and opened up the group to express ideas, thoughts and opinions.

Interesting...  I'm not sure I've got too many rules of my own!  Although I'm sure it's probably due to the fact that they're not tested, or I'm not being conscious about them...  Were you talking about the book I've read having an influence over me that might not be positive?  The reason I like the book is because it provides me with information that I feel positive about... :)  I'm not very worried about loosing my sense of self - seeing as I'm not really sure what that is anyway!  I like the idea of embracing each moment - and allowing change to happen - after all change happens whether we like it or not - so I may as well relax into it and enjoy the ride as much as I'm able.

Beware the rules of others. They will lead you astray from your own.
