Beyond Dualities: Power and Love for Women and Men
Miki Kashtan, Co-founder, BayNVC
Despite impressive gains won through decades of feminist activism, many women are still either serving in traditional supportive roles or asked to forego care and love and adapt to a harsh, competitive, and impersonal work-world. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers the premise that women and men share the same human needs and can therefore connect and work together effectively. Through empathic connection, empowered speech, and a commitment to everyone’s needs, NVC advocates believe the practice can support all people in living a fully human life. Kashtan is co-founder of BayNVC, an organization staffed almost entirely by women. Her teaching style is interactive and builds on the real-life experiences of her audience.
