Authentic communication is essential for intentional communities to work and be socially sustainable. Disagreements are inevitable, what’s more important is to transform it into a creative experience through non-violent communication. It takes practice and dedication to let go of any sense of unworthiness that arises from disagreement. But it is possible.
Learn about non-violent communication methods and listen in on a discussion about vulnerability, shame, worthiness, misunderstanding, and criticism. Apply what you learn in this lesson in your own life. How do you respond to disagreement and criticism? And what does your vocal tone convey?
