The Peer Practice program is a series of Nonviolent Communication practices undertaken alone, with a partner, and in a group, in virtual and actual places.
The purpose of a peer practice program is to provide an interdependent structure to support personal growth and social change. Peer practice does this by inviting each of us to our learning edge, by stimulating empathic connections, and by accessing the wisdom of the circle.
The Peer Practice program welcomes people at any skill level who actively want to integrate mindfulness and nonviolence skills into their lives. We have had numerous successful Peer Practice programs with participants from the US and Ireland, since 2011.
The program recognizes how repetition deepens our skills through accumulation and strength building in the same way that gluing layers of paper together creates a very strong material. Similarly, repeatedly removing layers of opacity allows us to see with greater clarity and discernment. The peer practice model can also be used to integrate many kinds of skill sets.
