NVC helps you to more easily resolve conflicts, get what you want without demands, hear the needs of others, strengthen your personal and professional relationship and live your fullest potential.
Meditation is a way of life. Meditation means having awareness of all your thoughts. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. It describes a state of consciousness where the mind is free of all the mixed thoughts, and is able to concentrate on just one thought and feeling. Meditation gently guides us towards pure and non-violent thoughts that originate from the real self.
