I first encountered Nonviolent Communication while perusing a magazine article, vividly written by Katy Butler, detailing her discovery of NVC as a worthy complement to the Buddhist discipline of "right speech".

While intrigued, it would be a long and winding road towards becoming a "street giraffe" practitioner, myself: often challenged by ahimsa, while still drawn in by how NVC encompasses both introspection/outrospection (from a common denominator of universal-human-needs/values) and compelled by a mindfulness practice rooted in the spiritual depth of language (e.g. our expression/listening 'choice-points' etc.).

Speaking of choice-points, it's been especially useful, while on this path, to encounter and then cultivate NVC mediation skills, which can offer a "3rd chair" point-of-view as one navigates the intra/interpersonal dynamics of everyday life, both the personal, the political and how they invariably intersect.

I offer free @mediateoneslife consultations, along these lines, supporting dialogue (both within ourselves and with others) and facilitate a monthly telepractice group, as well. (You're welcome to contact me via streetgiraffe@gmail.com with any inquiries you may have.)

Fruitful forays, Pamela
