Wayland Myers: How to Stop 9 out of 10 Arguments With Nonviolent Communication

Dr. Wayland Myers is a retired professional therapist who worked and trained 1-1 with the founder of nonviolent communication, Marshall Rosenberg for decades.

His extensive career extends from beginnings in mechanical engineering to the world of social studies and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the CA School of Professional Psychology in San Diego.

I got to sit down with him in my old hometown of Encinitas California for a radically healing and helpful podcast that ALL of us will enjoy.

In this episode, you’ll get the inside and exclusive story and science around this often misunderstood approach. When done correctly, it becomes a life-changing communication model for couples and anyone who desires an intimate relationship with themselves or others.

You're going to get all of this today right here right now on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast.

Nonviolent Communication Model

So why is nonviolent communication important at its core? And why should any of us learn this simple framework that has the potential to change our lives?

Well, because all of us are jackals at times. You'll understand what I mean when you listen to the episode, but the goal for us is to be a giraffe.

In nature, giraffes are loved because of their long necks that stick out with vulnerability and curiosity to reach the tallest branches.

If all of us can be more like a giraffe and less like a jackal, the world will be a better place.

In this podcast, you'll learn about the practical ways you can integrate the nonviolent communication model into your life, and the exact tools of nonviolent communication, even when the stakes or your pain are at higher levels when you're super triggered or disturbed.

This episode is timeless because all of us, including our grandparents and even our future children, will deal with the jackal and the giraffe.

Communicating with Loving Curiosity

Nonviolent communication is a simple communication model, yet simple is not always easy, and through this model you'll find your most incredible power because that power comes from peace. And whenever power comes from peace, it can be trusted.

Forcefulness and manipulation, that you and I both find ourselves behaving in life, never end up serving us or the person we're trying to control, do they? Nevertheless, there is another way and this is why I'm so excited for you to hear this episode.
