Stephanie is passionate to share her understanding of NVC as a life-long practice to empower oneself and others to celebrate the humanity in one’s own being, and to encounter the humanity in the other person. NVC offers transformational processes to support the journey from human to humane by providing clear tools for healing and reconciliation of warring parts within our psyche, for emerging into our wholeness, for consistently re-connecting with our authenticity, and for practicing the gift of mindful and compassionate presence for ourselves and others.
MBSR classes offer a path of personal inquiry and specific mindfulness practices that support self-empowerment by reducing reactivity, increasing well-being and aliveness, and learning new ways to relate to ourselves, others and life. By learning to cultivate the intrinsic natural human capacity of mindfulness we proactively respond to needs for self-mattering, self-care and self-responsibility.
