embodied non-violent communication

Embodied Needs-Based Communication AKA Non-Violent Communication

Embodied Nonviolent Communication (ENVC) is a somatic approach that harnesses the body's nervous system to navigate conflicts and foster understanding. By integrating embodied cognition, individuals learn to regulate their nervous system, promoting harmony in daily interactions. ENVC emphasizes authentic relationships as foundational to well-being, employing metaphors like the giraffe and the jackal to symbolize communication dynamics. Through ENVC, individuals gain tools to consciously navigate conflicts and choose compassionate responses. Rooted in person-centered therapy, ENVC aims to enhance empathy and improve lives by addressing fundamental human needs. This approach promotes empathy while viewing conflict as a resource for mutual growth, understanding and meeting individual needs. Integrated into education and healthcare, ENVC has the potential to revolutionize communication and promote empathy in diverse settings.

Only love and cooperation builds the world

Liza and I come from completely different upbringings, different cultures, religions, language, and ethnicity. And yet, through our communication with genuine intentions, I found a friend, an adversary, a beacon of hope. Liza wants to heal the world with love and her beautiful smile. I not only commend her for it, but I also encourage her.
