Nonviolent Communication

The nonviolent communication (GFK) according to Marshall Rosenberg is a profound method for the estimation of the co-existence. Rosenberg assumes that we pursue the goal of fulfilling our needs with every action and every behavior. This means, behind every communication, it is about the needs that lie behind it. Thus, Rosenberg calls a form of violence a tragic expression of an unfulfilled need.

CSF originates from an attitude which recognizes that all people act out of the attempt to satisfy their needs and that harmonious co-operation can only be achieved if the needs of all stakeholders are taken into account.

This group of exercises is aimed at those who are looking for ways to nurture this careful and peaceful dealings with themselves and others, and to engage in valuable communication, especially in difficult, conflict-prone situations.

We practice in presence, in listening, in true speaking, in the limits, in taking responsibility for our feelings. We learn a lot about ourselves and about the way we have learned to communicate and deepen our empathy practices.

Rosenberg has successfully used this method during the last 20 years in the Middle East conflict, in the field of pawn communication and in schools with racial problems.

The group is open to GRP novices and experienced.
