Improve your relationships


Improve your relationships

Training at a Glance

We are constantly communicating – giving our opinion, listening to our friends, negotiating a contract, asking for advice, etc. – and, most of the time, everything goes well. However, we also experience relationships where communication is more difficult, especially with the people who are important to us. Whether because we find it hard to make ourselves understood, or because we are not able to hear the frustration or pain of others, one thing is certain, this only creates a sense of distance and shutdown in the relationship.

In this workshop, you will learn a new language! You will experience a way of communicating with greater clarity and emotional autonomy, from gaining closure to collaboration.

In this introduction to Nonviolent Communication (NVC), you will learn a method that improves interpersonal relationships, increases your ability to express yourself clearly, and greatly expands your listening skills. It is a powerful process that allows for more connection, freedom and vitality in your relationships.

Authentic Dialogue Basics is a prerequisite for our Authentic Dialogue Immersion Program (available in French) which will allow you to deepen your knowledge and communication skills.

Participants' feedback

The Basics weekend was the first time I understood what it meant to hold myself in high regard AND hold others in love. WOW! I experienced what it felt like to be in a connected dialogue, even if it was just an exercise, and left there feeling empowered and driven to see what could happen in my life. Thank you so much Guillaume (Spiralis) for such a powerful demonstration of empathy.

Julia, Montréal

I want to express my gratitude to both Clotilde and Julia for this wonderful training. Thank you so very much for your time, dedication and devotion towards us and your work. You both share and communicate with such great energy and passion your teaching and, in the process, create a very welcoming and inviting space that offers us the willingness and desire to want to participate and take part, share, learn and grow.
