Full Description

Join LoraKim Joyner, CNVC Certified Trainer and Unitarian Universalist minister, for this webinar designed for those who wish a greater integration and understanding of NVC in their faith and spiritual communities.  These communities may include but are not limited to any denomination, temple, mosque or sangha.  Our goal is to learn how NVC can augment our faith and spiritual development in the context of community so that we can be the change we wish in the world.

During this webinar we will experience a supportive community as we experiment with and grow our understanding and ability of NVC foundations.  Each session will be liberally sprinkled with interaction with other participants, live examples, concepts of science, theo/thea-logy and interpersonal neurobiology.

Session One: Introduction to NVC in Faith and Spiritual Communities

Are you part of a faith or spiritual community that you feel would benefit from NVC consciousness and skills?  Would you like to include NVC in your faith and spiritual development so that you reach greater awareness, aliveness and a sense of interconnection, unity and transcendence?

In this session we will investigate what we mean by faith and spirituality in the general sense, and then what they might mean in an NVC context.  We will share stories of how our communities can, in themselves, block our faith development, as well as support it.  After supporting one another in this way, we will delve into how we might hold the needs of the many in our communities, while also gaining greater spiritual health and well being.

Session Two:  Living Our Faith in the Inherent Worth and Dignity of All Beings

Do you wish you treated others and yourself with compassion when your needs are not being met, or your community is experiencing conflict?  Perhaps you wish you or others in your faith or spiritual community was more consistent in living their values instead of just talking about it?

Valuing others is the first principle of Unitarian Universalism, which is to affirm and promote the "inherent worth and dignity of all people."  Other religious traditions have similar tenets when they speak of how everyone is a child of God or that everyone has Buddha nature.  We all struggle with how our actions and thoughts actually align with this understanding of humanity and the world.  In this session we will see how NVC can help grow our embodiment of seeing ourselves and others as beautiful, and how specific practices might help us live this understanding in daily action and thought.

Session Three: Living Our Faith in the Global Community

Do you or your members in your community struggle with how to have the presence, vigor and faith that it is even possible to address the needs of all so that concrete changes are discernable and so that suffering lessens?

In the wake of the Occupy Movement and Arab Spring we see how widespread the desire is to bring justice into our lives and communities. We also see how challenging this work can be given the complexity, enormity and power differentials in our social structures. Despite this, many faith traditions seek to rise to this challenge, as they follow some form of the Golden Rule – to treat others as you wish to be treated. In Unitarian Universalism the sixth principle calls us to affirm and promote the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.

In this session we will investigate how NVC can augment a community’s justice making efforts, not just for greater effectiveness in the world, but as part of an individual’s faith development.
