It’s always happened to me when I put my intention on doing something that the Universe provides…
The last few days have been a constant test, and it feels at times that I’m failing miserably. The upside is that I’m learning a lot. I’m doing the course with a friend/colleague and it’s been great having someone to discuss the exercises with. It has also been a comfort to see that we are both being tested in similar ways. The best moment today came when Marshall tells an anecdote of a time when he was triggered to react… and how he used it as an opportunity for learning.
My son after his KunFu lesson asked me tonight: “mom, do you know the difference between a reaction and a response?”
“I think I know but I’m interested in hearing what you think it is.” I replied.
“The difference is that one involves thinking and the other doesn’t”.
Interesting that I can manage to apply NVC successfully when I take the time to respond rather than react.
There is so much information on NVC that is already available online that instead of typing a synopsis here, I’m going to provide a few links. Enjoy.

I bought the training course from Sounds True, one of my favorite sources for quality publications. Here’s a link to the actual page for the NVC home training course from Sounds True. If you sign up for their newsletter, they have specials for discounts and free shipping.
