BONUS EPISODE: Finding Peace through Non-Violent Communication with Paulette Bray-Narai
Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond
Sally speaks with Paulette Bray-Narai, a certified Nonviolent Communication (NVC) instructor about how we can reframe the challenges we find in life through the practice of NVC.NVC was developed by Dr Marshall Rosenberg in the US in the 1960's and has been used since that time to bring groups with vastly opposing views together to form peaceful agreements. The NVC process has 4 main steps:1. When faced with a situation, observe what is happening objectively.2. Sense your feelings in response to the situation.3. Connect your feelings with a need.4. Make a request (of yourself or the other person), without having attachment to your particular request.This process is described in full in Dr Rosenberg's book "Non-Violent Communication".In this podcast we examine some common statements that can lead to disagreement, and then reframe these statements using NVC. Through this process we come to see how judgements in the use of certain words close down curiosity and open-minded discussion, and how by contrast the NVC process keeps seemingly opposing parties engaged with finding solutions.Also mentioned is the work of US based NVC trainer, Miki Kashtan who can be found at www.thefearlessheart.org.Paulette can be found at:www.expresspeace.comandwww.byronbayhealthycommunication.com.au/Produced and presented by Sally CusackGuest: Paulette Bray-NaraiCopyright 2020 PBB Media and Sally CusackAll rights reserved.www.pbbmedia.org
Show #63: Compassionate communication with Paulette Bray-Narai
Low Tox Life
In this week’s show, I chat to Paulette Bray Narai who’s a specialist on Non Violent Communication - it’s one of the calmest chats I’ve ever had on the show, her energy is so darn serene! If you’ve ever felt tensions in relationships, with partners, bosses, your kids… I pick Paulette’s brain on helping us find the most practical and useful of tips on how to deal with those moments in life. I was overjoyed to have her on the show because toxic energy, pent up stress from negative interactions is every bit as damaging to our health as what we eat or use on our skin, and the low tox mind is well worth cultivating, so I hope you enjoy what is the kind of show where you can literally start putting into practice the wisdom TODAY.
