How our "Broken Toes" Sabotage our Relationships

Discover How our “Broken Toes” Sabotage Our Relationships!

Having trouble living your values or “doing NVC” when you’re upset?

Longing for more authentic connection with others? 

Seeking a place where you can Be and bring everything you are, and be held with deep compassion and respect?

Hungry for more understanding, awareness, and authentic choice in your life?

Willing to discover the hidden ways your own perceptions, words, and
actions might be helping create what you don’t want or enjoy?

 
Our Presence Practice Series is a profoundly safe place where you can connect with yourself and develop the “presence muscles” you need to be able to witness and hold your own and others’ discomfort, distress, and reactivity with compassion, awareness, and response-ability — the foundations of authentic choice.

Offered as a 5-week community experience, our Presence Practice Series is perfect for anyone with a basic sense of personal empowerment who’s longing to develop a greater capacity for:

  • authentic connection with self, Life, and others
  • resonant empathy with self and others
  • mindfulness (awareness), presence, self-management, and choice
  • “turning towards” difficult emotions; receiving their revitalizing gifts; and releasing old, stuck pain and patterns from the past
  • discovering the hidden factors that are creating persistent, unresolved disconnection, conflict, or upset with other people;
  • genuinely meeting needs (your own and others’) in a way that supports everyone’s thriving
  • remaining at peace in the midst of even the most challenging circumstances (whether internal or external)

We learn and practice a variety of distinctions, tools, methods, and processes (guided by participants’ requests and the facilitator’s suggestions), including resonant empathy (including resonantly guessing feelings and needs), reflection, somatic expression, role-playing, the Inner Path, Inner Parts work, and others.

We are a deeply authentic, transparent community where you can Be and bring everything you are and receive compassionate support for regaining your authentic power and choice.

Come join us. (And, welcome home.)

PREREQUISITES: Essential Personal Readiness and Ongoing Commitments:

  • Attend Part 1 of a live Thriving Fundamentals Seminar, or watch the 95-minute recording
  • A profound commitment to practicing holding ourselves and others with dignity, compassion, and shared humanity.
  • A belief that we are each ultimately responsible for our own well-being, and a sense of basic empowerment to meet our own needs, both through our own inner resources and through a willingness to request and receive the support of others.   (Please note: this is not a therapy group, it is a mutually supportive community.)
  • A willingness to build our capacity to shift from blaming or judging (self or others) and being “caught up in our self-protective stories” to compassionately, curiously discovering what is actually happening within ourselves and others, including looking within* for the “broken toes” that are the source of most of our upsets/reactivity.
  • A lived, ongoing commitment to a daily mindfulness practice
  • A capacity and willingness to notice and directly experience present-moment body sensations, feelings, thoughts, and impulses.
  • NO PREVIOUS NVC EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED. The Thriving Life approach to NVC is organic, natural, and easy to learn.


*
The “issue” may be arising from something outside of us that is of genuine concern, but our experience has shown that our reactivity/upset and most of our “unbearable” pain arises from something within us that we’re not yet fully connected to … including unresolved painful experiences from our past.
