Have you seen the recording of Marshall Rosenberg’s phenomenal San Francisco workshop? There are a lot of gems in there about how to create easy connection, but it is 3 hours long.. so I selected the most helpful principles he shares in this workshop and will present them for you in this video. Trying to make live easier for you all. Let me know what you thought of it in the comments!

    Thanks for this digest Marianne. It helps me a lot to go a bit further into Rosenberg’s thinking.
    I find out “the joy of feeding the duck” has been a guiding principle my all life long, for me. It is still a driving force for interacting with my team professionally. I realise I should rely more on it with my kids as well (paternalistic behaviour is so strongly imbedded in my education, that “authority” still remains natural way of placing requests / orders even among family members).
    I want to cultivate NVC in our eco-intensive horticulture cooperative, so that we become better at growing plants not only in an eco-responsible manner, but also in a socio / psycho-responsible manner. Human relations can be more toxic than pesticides if we don’t handle them properly!

      Thanks for sharing this Fred, I love what you say about ‘human relations can be more toxic than pesticides’..

    This whole thing is helpful. Especially the child feeding the duck and I did not cause this and I don’t have to fix this. Thank you so much
