A weekly 1 hour connection and empathy space currently hosted by people who have experience in NVC, for anyone interested in NVC. 

This is not a workshop but a peer listening space to encourage listening. 

When is it?

Every Sunday 12-1pm UK time

Who it’s for

Everyone who is interested in NVC is welcome. No need for formal training but it’s great if you have been to some trainings. 

Come if you want to practice listening.

Come if you’d enjoy a listening ear.

As it’s a peer listening space, the Listening Hour is not suitable if you are going through significant emotional upheaval or for processing trauma.

What happens

We offer a structure which offers clear guidance to everyone about what to do.

Format (Each host will hold the space in a slightly different way but the overall structure will be the same)

  • Check-in
  • Breakout into 3s for empathy and listening. (Empathy guidelines will be given and you can respond to the generative question ‘What do you want empathy for or to talk through?’)
  • Closing

Self responsibility

This is a reminder that everyone is responsible for themselves and we encourage you to take care of your own emotional safety. 

Bear in mind your listening partners aren’t trainers or therapists.

Is there any cost?

We’re offering these sessions for free as we’d like to contribute to making empathy support more accessible, especially during these challenging times. Afterwards, if you are moved to do so, and can afford it, we’d be grateful for a donation to our chosen organisation:
