Miki Kashtan, “A Naturalizing the NVC language comes from aligning ourselves with the truth and expressing from that place.  I want to learn more and more how to express myself in ways that are completely authentic and require the least amount of effort for the other person to hear me.  One of the reasons why the conditioning to be inauthentic is in place is because of the widespread perception that truth and care are incompatible.  I challenge that assumption deeply, and have come to believe that any truth can be combined with sufficient care to maintain connection while delivering it.”
