- An interview with Gregg Kendrick by Torsten Hardiess of NVC Princicples. TOPIC: Dynamic Governance / Sociocracy
- An introduction to Dynamic Governance by Ted Millich
In this white paper entitled "Evolving NVC into Groups, Part 1," Gregg Kendrick describes his discovery of how needs-consciousness is extended into groups of people who share a common purpose. Within the discussion, he introduces a new level of needs awareness: the needs of the "WE." The concepts within this paper are the foundations of Gregg's work of bringing needs-consciousness, skills and structures into the workplace.
NVC as a Mindfulness Practice
At the core of NVC is the relationship with one's self. NVC invites us to be self-aware and to be self-connected. Learning these skills along with self-empathy, self-compassion & self-responsibility opens up a rich mindfulness process. As we explore this space, we want to share it with others.
Somatic Forms that are in harmony with NVC
We are exploring a variety of somatic forms that appear to express NVC in a physical way rather than with words. Among the forms we are exploring are Contact Improv, Playback Theater, Svaroopa Yoga, Ki-Aikido, and Alexander Technique.
