Time for Empathy
6-13 October 2019!
Online events promoting empathic listening and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offered for free by trainers from all over the world! For one week you will have a great opportunity to learn empathic communication, look at empathy from different perspectives and become part of NVC community which inspires and supports each other!
Do you know that 2 October is
The International Day of Empathic Action?
The International Day of Empathic Action was established in 2009 to create unity, community and a world-wide understanding of empathy. Let’s celebrate this day together by offering and participating in free events connected to empathy and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) from 6th to 13th of October 2019.
It can be an online lecture or workshop in a form of a webinar, ZOOM session or Facebook Live. You can offer 1-on-1 training, coaching or empathy session through Skype. We can also publish your article or podcast.
Every idea to spread empathy and Nonviolent Communication is welcome!
Are you a trainer spreading empathic communication?
We invite trainers from all over the world to join our event and offer your time and knowledge for free to spread empathy and Nonviolent Communication on a bigger scale.
It can be any kind of online event that meets following criteria:
- The topic is connected to Nonviolent Communication (NVC) – preferably about empathy, but not necessary.
- The event will take place between 6 and 13 October 2019.
- The event is in English.
- You offer it for free.
We will collect all offers and publish them on this website. Besides, we are offering our technical support, if needed (ZOOM, Facebook Group, etc.).
We will also take care about registrations (we will do it through Eventbrite) and will send all practical information to the participants few days before the event.
We plan to record all events and offer them on our ONLINE PLATFORM to make it accessible for free, or for a voluntary donation, also in the future. If you have any questions or don’t want to share your recording this way, just let us know – we will find the solution.
Why to offer something for free?
Maybe you wonder if it is worth it – investing your time and resources…
If you want to have impact on what’s happening in the world and contribute to the well-being of people by sharing your knowledge and experience, then yes!
Below you can find some of the benefits of participating in this project as a trainer or a facilitator:
Giving and receiving
Your voluntary work will contribute to making NVC more accessible and visible. This way we can change the world bit by bit and benefit from more satisfying relationships.
We see this project as a platform where we can support each other in our mission and in the future we can continue our cooperation by organizing projects on a bigger scale.
Thanks to this project you may present what you do to the wider audience and become more recognized on the international level.
We hope that the idea of this project and seeing offerings of other trainers will stimulate your creativity and invite you to try something innovative.
Reaching new people
Together we can reach more people! We will promote this project on a variety of social platforms and you can do it as well. There are so many people that have never heard about NVC yet!
We want to make it easy for you to offer an online event. So, if you need, we can provide the technical support. Write us an e-mail and we will figure out how to proceed.
About the organizers
Peace and Conflict Researcher, Soulpreneur, Singer-Songwriter
I got to know NVC in 2008 and since then I am on the path of constantly practicing, sharing, creating and co-creating. I work mainly in the “online-world”, offering online-communication-trainings on topics like parenthood, shame/guilt/vulnerability, small inspired steps… I also offer one-on-one compassion sessions, monthly group sessions called LAB. I create a lot of free content as “mini-inspirations” for reminding that you have all the qualities inside you need to create a life and relationships you truly want and that we are all imperfectly perfect. One of my biggest passions and learning field is facilitating conflicts with Restorative Circles and mediation a la NVC. I like to be supportive in seeing conflicts as part of being alive and as a chance to explore something beautiful and important, not as something we have to reject and be fearful of. NVC for me is peacework, knowledge and wisdom combined, a language of all senses, consciousness-training. It is a tool for me to stay on my path, be open for the challenges of life and be present in every encounter I experience. I am mother of two boys (5 and 9). Being part of the Empathic Way Europe Project fulfills many needs like co-creation, contribution, adventure, community, peace. I am on the path to CNVC certification.

Trainer of empathic communication, life-coach
I support people in creating satisfying life and relationships (personal and professional) through individual trainings and group workshops deepening communication skills. I help in implementing Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in relationships, companies and non-governmental organisations. My work is based not only on Nonviolent Communication (NVC) created by Marshall B. Rosenberg, but also on non-formal learning methods and on Coaching for Transformation approach. I founded Empathic Way (www.empathicway.pl), through which I promote NVC and teach honest and clear self-expression and listening to others with respect and empathy. Empathic Way Europe is a project that I started because I love working in English and want to reach people living in the whole Europe. I run the Warsaw Empathy Group, I offer training courses and individual support. I am the author of the online course “Four steps to a better relationship with others and myself” (at the moment only in Polish). I got to know NVC in 2010. I am on the path to CNVC certification.
