Welcome to our 1 year Celebration Month

When we began the Listening Hour on 1st November 2020, it was intended for 4 weeks initially, and the response was so overwhelmingly positive and the vibe was so good, we kept going and kept going and here we are, one year on. And knowing how important celebration is, as 'social glue' in a community, we are ready to celebrate!!

In this email, you will find information about

  • Creating a Celebration video
  • Extra Evening session on Thursday 4th November 8-9pm UK
  • Invitation to make a financial contribution
Celebration Video - please send by Sat 30th October

We'd like to celebrate this anniversary making a short video about the impact the Listening Hour has had on our lives.

We would like to invite you to send a short video saying what you've gained from these Sunday meetings, any feelings and needs met, or maybe a note of gratitude. You can add a bit of creativity into it if you feel like. Make it a song, poem or a dance (just an idea).

Alternatively, you can send a recording of your voice or a brief statement in writing. Please keep the recording short (approximately max. 30 seconds long).

Please note: by sending the video/statement you agree to it being shared by email and online.
Please send your video using WhatsUp to Justyna on +447527813603 by Saturday 30th of October.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Justyna on
We are looking forward to receiving your video/statement.

Extra session on Thursday 4th November 8-9pm UK

We will celebrate and experiment at the same time. Several people have commented on wanting to experiment with a different time so wee will try out an evening (UK evening) time so see how this feels. Link will be sent in the usual way.  We will check in and check out with Gratitude for Listening, the Listening Hour, Empathy, Compassion or for anyone in particular who you would like to show gratitude for.

Invitation for financial contribution

If you have enjoyed the Listening Hour, please consider contributing to NVC Matters, this is our organisation of choice. Tracy Seed, one of the Directors came to talk to Listening Hour hosts a few weeks ago about what NVC Matters is and who it's for.

Basically it's for all of us!  Without an organisation, it's very difficult to organise and grow and we end up reinventing the wheel all the time.

The Listening Hour is a fantastic feature of NVC activity in the UK and the Listening Hour is publicised on the NVC UK website.  If you want to help consolidate the organisation of NVC in the UK, please make a contribution. This is of course, entirely optional.

Finally, thank you for your participation over the year.

until soon
