A 12 minute audio about the difference between thoughts and feelings here.
NVC resources for de-escalation for XR.
This Zoom call has a number of ideas for de-escalating large groups, including when the police get too much. It seems invaluable to me, and I found it inspiring. I would start at 4 mins, as there is teccy stuff before that.
The BREATHE acronym has been used in trainings for XR activists by NVC trainers and here are some 1 hr recordings from April ’19.
And here are some 1 hr online trainings coming up in July ’19
The BREATHE handout to go with the on-line trainings, and can stand alone too.
Assortment of Videos
I really love Marianne De Dijk’s stuff, here is a link to one of her videos on her website where her father tells her something she didn’t do that he was upset about, I found what transpired moving.
When a child wants to repeatedly say NO.
Roleplays between parent and child with some explanations. 30 mins NVC
3.5 mins A teacher’s discovery when torn between giving his pupils choice about what they did in class, and learning NVC.
“I want to watch video games…” computer voices role play using #NVC
Conflict Hotline: A series of role-play conflicts, recorded each month from people phoning in. Many with Miki Kashtan coaching. I found it not only inspirational, but also a great way of learning for free. Type “Conflict Hotline” into the You Tube search engine and then chose which one you want to listen to or click here for one on anger.
Brene Brown is an amusing researcher/story teller with a powerful message. Very helpful as support for modern life, I believe. Page down on her welcome page for 2 of her TED talks – one on the power of vulnerability and the other on shame. http://www.brenebrown.com/welcome
This is Part 1 of a 2 part class by Tara Brach about evolving past contempt, judgement and blame. Part 1 is about self forgiveness, why it’s not your fault, & where blame & judgements come from. It’s amusing, includes stories & poems and I found it profound. Towards the end she leads us through what for me was a wonderful exercise on self compassion for whatever we don’t like about ourselves. I’d love everyone to experience this.
