At iaPOETRY we believe in the principles and practice of Nonviolent Communication.

It focuses on three aspects of communication:

Self-empathy: a compassionate awareness of one’s own inner experience

Empathy: a compassionate awareness of the inner experience of others

Honest self-expression: expressing oneself authentically in a way that is likely to inspire compassion in others 

Nonviolent Communication is the integration of:

Consciousness: a set of principles that supports living a life of compassion, collaboration, courage and authenticity

Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance

Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even in disagreement, and how to move toward solutions that work for all

Nonviolent Communication helps us to:

  • Increase our ability to live with choice, meaning, and connection
  • Connect empathetically with self and others to have more satisfying relationships
  • Share time and resources for the benefit of all
