Getting love right

Intro

Time intelligently spent at this stage will reap rewards for the entire length of your relationship. Getting these moments of your partnership right offers you safety, security and years of loving connection.

Connection

Healthy, loving and delightful relationships are built on key foundational understandings. Trust, open communication and connection are generated during these very early stages of a partnership.

Fruitful

Putting in place simple-to-comprehend and mutually-agreed upon ways to behave with each other sow the seeds to a fruitful partnership.

Measure

Cultivating healthy, loving and highly respectful guidelines by which to measure our conduct, enable us to communicate what is working and what is not working in our connection, ensuring a healthy and effective way to guard against toxic elements poisonous to love. The following resources and concepts make for a toolbox to tackle the biggest relationship challenges.

Marshall Rosenberg – Nonviolent Communication 

A Language of Life

Image of Man

Nonviolent Communication (abbreviated NVC) is an approach to nonviolent living developed by Marshall Rosenburg in the 1960s. The premise is that each human being has the capacity for compassion and only resorts to conflict when they don’t have access to more effective tools, resources and strategies for meeting their needs. Rosenburg suggests habits of speaking and thinking that lead to the use of verbal and physical violence are learned through culture.

NVC theory supposes all human behaviour stems from attempts to meet universal human needs and that these needs are never in conflict. Rather, conflict arises when strategies for meeting needs clash. NVC proposes that people identify shared needs, revealed by the thoughts and feelings that surround these needs, and can collaborate to develop strategies that meet them. NVC creates both harmony and learning for future cooperation.

NVC is useful as a process of interpersonal communication to improve compassionate connection to our significant other. Starting from a position of responsible communication, and a commitment to not infringe or inflict harm or distress onto our partners will benefit our relationships exponentially.
