    NVC Consciousness with Mary Mackenzie

    NVC Consciousness with Mary Mackenzie

    OMG, if anyone has a podcast or work with audio, you would know that different mics can sound different depending on how it is set up. The mic can be up right or the top facing you. And silly Kady decided to turn the mic to face her and the sound got all jacked up lol. (face in hands) So if the audio of my voice sounds off and or different, yup that's me messin' with things before recording and not testing it. LOL 

    We get the honor to have Mary Mackenzie on our podcast. We asked Mary several questions about her experience with NVC, how it’s impacted her life moving forward, what can facilitators do when things are in high energy, and what exactly is NVC consciousness.

    Mary Mackenzie, M.A., is an author, trained mediator, and CNVC Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication. She holds a master’s degree in human relations from Northern Arizona University and is the co-founder of the NVC Academy, ­the only online school for learning Nonviolent Communication.

    Mary teaches Nonviolent Communication and other spiritually-based programs to individuals, couples, families, organizations, and spiritual communities through a wide variety of workshops and retreats. Her book Peaceful Living: Daily Meditations for Living with Love, Healing and Compassion offers inspiring practical methods for creating peace in our everyday lives.

    As a pioneer of online NVC training, Mary runs her company in harmony with what she teaches. She and NVC Academy co-founder, Mark Schultz, paved the way to NVC online training in 2006 and have been instrumental in alleviating the financial and geographical barriers to learning NVC skills. 


    One of her passions is facilitating critical dialogues between people, and she has spent more than 20 years learning a wide variety of effective processes she can draw on in a moment’s notice. Known for her clear communication style, she is especially skilled in helping individuals within groups put aside their preferences and find ways to collaborate with each other that are in alignment with their values. Her ability to cut through the confusion in a group has helped many teams quickly move forward in their desired progress.

    Request for support from my listeners


    I am going to be moving back to Bend, OR and I would love to set up a small studio in my apartment so Kyle and I don’t have to use zoom. In order to do that I would need to buy two Dynamic XLR Microphones so we can sit at the same table together, as well as a mic stand and the XLR cords to go with. This can get expensive especially when mics can cost between $200 – 500$ each. This will help me save time and not have to spend on average 8hrs of editing on each episode. Since I haven’t been working because of COVID, I would love your support in donating 1-10$ to my Living connected Paypal account. A little goes a long way and I truly from the bottom of my heart would appreciate it. I will also give you a huge shout out on my podcast to those who have donated. If you would prefer to be anonymous that is okay too. Let me know in the notes if you would prefer not to have a shout out of gratitude.

    Permission to Feel with Nikki Elbertson

    Permission to Feel with Nikki Elbertson

    In several episodes I was obsessed (still am) with the book Permission to Feel by Marc Bracket. I still highly recommend reading. I tried to reach out to see if he could join me on my podcast and I was given the gift to talk to Nikki who has worked along side Marc and we enjoyed an amazing connection talking together. I am grateful to introduce Nikki Elbertson, M.Ed., is the director of content and communications at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. In various research and training roles at the Center since 2002, she has contributed to the development, implementation, and evaluation of RULER from early childhood through high school. Nikki has co-authored many of the Center’s research studies and curricula, including scholarly articles, papers, and book chapters. Her favorite emotion management strategy is teaching group fitness classes, which she’s been doing since 2008.

    Relationships Part 2 with David Weinstock

    Relationships Part 2 with David Weinstock

    We recorded this 7 days before my mom passed and I was so tired and exhausted. I had forgotten to put in my headphones in. It truly messed up my recording and you will hear my audio with both Kyle and David in the background. Because of this screw up it took me over 12 hrs to edit that is sooo long. I did give myself compassion for this. I wanted to give you heads up incase you heard some things that don’t line up. I know I am behind in keeping up on releasing of episodes. It’s been hard to edit when I am reliving listening to what it was like for me during my moms passing. It’s hard to hear. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 
    This is a continuation of our time with David Weinstock. We are talking about how important relationship is, when it comes to NVC. We also have a listener who wrote in some questions for David and we were able to get answers to a couple of them. David talks about his practices with NVC. We do bring in some of the mourning and celebration that both have a sense of gratitude. David said, “When we listen with empathy we are listening to life. It’s the space around those moments of connection.” 
    Parts of relationship is to know how to self-regulate. When we are in relationship with another person there might be part of our history that comes up when we have conflict. Being in relationship with another is to be in relationship with yourself. And that is having awareness for when we may need to self-regulate in high-energy moments. We can learn and grow being in the presence of others. When we feel contracted that is a sign to pay attention to, because we will then need to move into self-empathy if we can and connect to Self.
    David has been phenomenal to speak to and get to know during this process. I hope it is the same for you. Please don’t hesitate to write us an email or send a voice memo we can share with all of our listeners.

    Energy Flows with Holly Mandel

    Energy Flows with Holly Mandel

    Holly Mandel has inspired so many people in the improv work that she does. She has created programs such as the school of improv called ImprovOlution, she has a podcast and wrote a book called “Good Girls Aren’t Funny”. Her work is based on women and girls on perfectionism, limits of obeying cultural ‘shoulds’ and liberating one’s self for the sake of all women. Holly has her degree in sociology and psychology from UCLA. She was a joy to talk to and I am super excited to share our time we had together with you listeners. There are so many avenues that NVC can be integrated in and we want to explore strategies that can also incorporate NVC. The more strategies that we have in our tool belt the better. Maybe this way of looking at the world works for you.

    Holly and I talk a lot about the energy that our thoughts produce and what we can manifest just by the energy we put towards certain things. What this energy is like and how energy can effect our every day mood and thoughts. Our mindset and energy can be so powerful and the changes we can see with just a bit of practice. Having this awareness of our energy can really bring in awareness to our feelings and needs in tough moments and calm moments.

    Closure

    Closure

    How has closure helped you? What strategies did you use to find closure in your heart? We would love to know what worked for you, send us a voice memo or an email so we can engage with our listeners. 
    The healing that comes from the clarity of closure is so healthy and important in order for us to move forward into the next chapter of our life. When we can heal and move through acceptance it allows space in our hearts to be open to the next person in a relationship. 
    When I have closure I feel a sense of confidence and empowerment because I can safely move on without having heavy feelings about a person, I can be happy for the other person and go on my way. Closure meets needs for freedom, solid clarity and my perspective what once was, has changed. I mourned fully and I am ready to take on the world again.

😍

Love this podcast! I’ve been learning about NVC over the past year, but don’t always have people to practice with. Listening to this podcast keeps me connected to the skills that I hope to keep alive in my daily life. Kyle and Kady do a great job of covering the basics and using examples to ground the theory in real life. I also love how laidback and genuine they are. Keep it coming!
