I am excited ant the distinction between Formal and colloquial NVC (Dan mentioned it tody over lunch) & I have followed up on it.
I get into the bind about the formal stuff I teach in the Intentional Dialogue. Of course it can be used colloquially, ionfomally.
I think though that the formal dialogue is needed, perhaps as a guide to a mopre integrated clean communication.
The dialogue is a discipline and I think the psyche needs that structure to go deep. To go fast.
