III ~ Street-Dispatches –

Next, while focusing on an material from our own lives, we will cultivate NVC consciousness by illuminating which of the various guiding principles may be in  play (while refining, even further, our expressivity):

Pick a situation in which you are struggling to connect and all you can come up with is judgments, demands, etc.

Write down what you said or what you would say if you opened your mouth.  Then pick one commitment* or one intention** or skill*** from the reference materials that feels relevant to the situation, and imagine applying it. Write down how your language might change if you aligned your heart with the intention or commitment you picked.
