Community – Zoom Talk with Volkmar Richter
Welcome to Week 2 of the Needs’ Year!
This week Joachim Berggren will have a conversation with Volkmar Richter about the need of Community.
Here is what Volkmar writes about himself:
“When I was 37 I lost the only community I knew of up to then. Although that community was far from ideal and it comprised only of 2 adults and 3 kids, it was devastating for me and also for the others: my wife left and I lost my family. This is now more than 22 years ago and soon after this event I quit working as a mechanical engineer in my own company and started exploring how we humans can get along with each other.
After getting to know NVC in 2005 and Robert Gonzales’ work in 2008, I learned that most of the suffering stem from emotional wounds we got in our childhood. I also got to know how we can liberate ourself from them. Since 2010, especially since 2017, I learn from Miki Kashtan. and with others in the Nonviolent Global Liberation Community. about external liberation and what a healthy community can look like and how it can be realised.”
