APuK Seminar

(Ambassador PLUS and Candidate Seminar)

13-day seminar for NVC-Ambassador alumni and certification candidates. This includes a 7-day training retreat (residential).

Candidate Retreat

You have completed the NVC Ambassador or are a registered candidate on the NVC certification path and would like to expand and strengthen your NVC awareness, your capacity for deep, sincere empathic connection with yourself and others, so that this lives in you as a majority unconscious competence.

You want to experience how you can come out of conflict into a quality of deep connection that touches and includes the dimension of spirituality?

You want to increasingly recognise yourself in the calm power of NVC consciousness. Accept that you are attractive to others. You notice that people are oriented towards you?

Competences that are consolidated in this seminar:

  • Connection:
    • Connecting in hot moments
    • Enter into a sincere connection even with the biggest trigger
    • Staying connected - connecting for the sake of connecting
    • Being connected with everything (spirituality)
  • Opting out of social customs

Format and time frame:

The seminar consists of 3 parts:

Part 1: 3 days seminar in the rooms of Fokus Empathie:

  • Become a study group
  • Remembering the principles of NVC again
  • formally work together and at the same time start to connect sincerely 

Part 2: 7 days seminar in an external location, with evening sessions and overnight stays:

  • Close, intensive living together according to the principles of NVC, alternately stimulated by the trainers as well as by what naturally arises from the group and its individual members.


Part 3: 3-day seminar in the rooms of Fokus Empathie:

  • Close open processes, round off, conclude

Focus Empathy provides a space where we leave the usual teaching and practice setting and start a community adventure with the group.

In 3 blocks we practise "the real thing" life.
