52. Non violent communication

 

Assumptions
NVC trainers Inbal and Miki Kashtan characterize the assumptions underlying NVC as:[4]

All human beings share the same needs
Our world offers sufficient resources for meeting everyone's basic needs
All actions are attempts to meet needs
Feelings point to needs being met or unmet
All human beings have the capacity for compassion
Human beings enjoy giving
Human beings meet needs through interdependent relationships
Human beings change
Choice is internal
The most direct path to peace is through self-connection


[edit]Intentions
The Kashtans further offer that practicing NVC involves holding these intentions:[4]

Open-Hearted Living
Self-compassion
Expressing from the heart
Receiving with compassion
Prioritizing connection
Moving beyond "right" and "wrong" to using needs-based assessments
Choice, Responsibility, Peace
Taking responsibility for our feelings
Taking responsibility for our actions
Living in peace with unmet needs
Increasing capacity for meeting needs
Increasing capacity for meeting the present moment
Sharing Power (Partnership)
Caring equally for everyone’s needs
Using force minimally and to protect rather than to educate, punish, or get what we want without agreement

It does not much help to deny or demonize or ridicule the fear in society that manifests in many forms, also guns for self protection. Need for safety and security is basic human need, and violent communication creates fear and distrust.
