With Katja Krauß (Germany) and Gabi Vana (Austria)
Practical workshop for caregivers of dogs and people who are interested in learning or deepening the Tellington Method and Nonviolent Communication (Marshall B. Rosenberg). Noticing, feeling, doing – our observations trigger feelings, feelings point to needs – needs motivate our and our dogs’ actions. How can we get to a loving understanding?
What has Tellington TTouch in common with Nonviolent Communication?
Linda Tellington-Jones describes Tellington TTouch as communication among all species. She teaches “Interspecies Communication” at the University of Boulder Colorado (for further information see: https://www.wisdomuniversity.org/interspecies-connections.htm).
One of the basic ideas of the Tellington approach is observation without evaluation. After the facts have been acknowleged by observing without judging, the individual animal experiences support in changing and expanding his/her consiousness. This goal can be achieved by applying the Tellington TTouch and also certain ways of guiding the animal through the Tellington parcours. The animals’ feelings are seen as expressions of their needs and they are asked if they are open to be shown alternatives.
We are clearly reminded of the 4 steps in Nonviolent Communication (observation, feelings, needs, request).
Katja Krauß (www.greh.de) is a third level Tellington Practitioner (the highest level). She has trained closely with Linda Tellington-Jones and often has Linda as a host in her dog-school in Berlin.
