  Walk your talk with Power and Compassion Lead by David Weinstock

I am very happy to return to the New York area and very excited about this weekend workshop.  There will be personal, partner and group explorations drawing from Nonviolent Communication, Somatic Coaching, Aikido, Music and Community Consensus living. We will bring to the table spirited centering and relationship practices with an infusion of music, lively conversation and some good fun. This cornucopia of practices will engage all of our senses to help align what we deeply value with our words and actions in the world.
Join us for this unique integration of Nonviolent Communication
Somatics, and Aikido to create a future of greater possibilities in your life.

After years (20 and still counting) of living in an Intentional Community where we have practiced Nonviolent Communication and worked by consensus, it has become very clear to me that inner work has a great amount of importance in these practices.
    My personal contribution to NVC practices is distilled from 30 years of studying and teaching the nonviolent martial art of Aikido and as a Somatic coach.  Somatic training beautifully supports the integration of the verbal and nonverbal aspects of communication.   Distillations from Aikido and Somatics, beautifully compliment, reveal and enhance the nonverbal facets of NVC practice.  The martial arts also bring with it a solid understanding of what mastery requires.  Aiki is the core of Aikido.  It is an art and discipline for developing harmony and cooperative action.  It promotes self-awareness, calmness under pressure, compassionate power, and respectful engagement with others.  Empathy in NVC  and  “ki”  in Aikido, to me are one and the same.  These various disciplines come together in the body of work I call , "Somatic Consensus".
    As with Aikido, I approach NVC as a way of life.  NVC becomes powerfully effective when our verbal and nonverbal communication are aligned and emerge from a unified internal consensus.         
    As I present a number of principles, examples, discourse and practices, the fundamental and recurring notion is that living fully in our bodies is the essential ingredient for living NVC, leading others and creatively leading our own lives. This is the foundation for mastery of any discipline, NVC included. Throughout the weekend there will be individual/partner/group interactions, demonstrations and conversations for reflection and action, creative explorations, contemplative time, selected readings and stories, and some good fun.
