Intimacy – Zoom Talk with Mary Mackenzie
Welcome to Week 50 of the Needs’ Year!
This week Joachim Berggren will have a conversation with Mary Mackenzie about the need for Intimacy.
Mary Mackenzie, M.A., is an author, trained mediator, and CNVC Certified Trainer. She holds a master’s degree in human relations from Northern Arizona University and is the CEO and co-founder of the NVC Academy.
As a pioneer of online NVC training, Mary runs her company in harmony with what she teaches. She and NVC Academy co-founder, Mark Schultz, paved the way for NVC online training in 2006 and have been instrumental in alleviating the financial and geographical barriers to learning NVC skills.
Known for her clear communication style, she is especially skilled in helping individuals within groups put aside their preferences and find ways to collaborate with each other that are in alignment with their values.
Mary writes: “I’ve chosen to talk about intimacy because so many people misunderstand it, I think. Often, people think intimacy means sex and I see it as having a much deeper meaning than that. In fact, I think of sex as one strategy to meet one’s need for intimacy, and, like all needs, there are many more ways to meet this important need.”
