Nonviolent Communication (abbreviated NVC, also called Compassionate Communication or Collaborative Communication) is a communication process based on the principles of nonviolence - the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart. It teaches some techniques for conflict-resolving, focusing on empathy. There are gatherings for NVC in many places, including in Vancouver.
Why the giraffes?
NVC uses two animals as symbols. The giraffe is the land animal with the biggest heart. With her long neck she has a good overview and clear vision. The giraffe stands for compassionate communication. The second animal is the wolf. Wolf language is about judging, criticizing, analyzing, moralizing and accusing. When we feel unfairly treated, accused or when we want to impose our wishes, we tend to use the language of the wolf.
