5.0 out of 5 stars Has the potential to change your life - if you choose to use it, 18 July 2009
This review is from: Nonviolent Communication: a Language of Life (Paperback)
Once you experience NVC, you'll never want to go back to communicating in a way that doesn't involve expressing and hearing needs - it becomes an example of Flow or a heightened state of consciousness. I have experienced profound joy from connecting with another person using NVC. That doesn't mean to say that learning NVC is easy; it isn't. NVC can stir-up all kinds of emotions that many people keep suppressed - the benefit is that you become more alive, more in touch with what is important to you, from doing so. To answer an earlier review, people who know NVC express the whole gamut of emotions - they're not 'nice, dead people'.

Learn the principles of NVC with somebody else - your parter or a close friend, if possible. Although supporters of NVC will tell you that to communicate compassionately, you only need one person (you), I have found myself giving empathy to someone else, whilst craving empathy myself, because I have struggled to get it from other people. It can be very isolating if you're the only person you know who is learning this whole new style of communication - if you learn it with someone else, you can share the learning and support each other.
