Our facilitator Rico Bergemann is offering Communication Practice Sessions for individuals, couples, and groups based on Nonviolent Communication (NVC). He also facilitates Reflection Sessions to gain clarity and resolution for any inner struggles or tension with yourself or someone in your life (the other person does not need to be involved in the process); These sessions are about connecting to the needs at the root of the issue by active and empathic listening and finding ways to meet those needs harmoniously.

This is for you, if

  • You wish for a more intimate and compassionate relationship with yourself, your partner, friends, family, and the community.

  • You struggle to express yourself or feel empathy for others (or yourself) in times of conflict.

  • You are curious about communication skills and approaches to meet human needs (based on NVC).

  • You are feeling confused or stuck and would like to know what lies beneath those feelings.

  • You want to transform anger, guilt, shame, and blame.

  • You want to access vulnerability without giving up on your sense of power and choice.

  • You want to explore habits or patterns that no longer serve you.

Types of Communication Practice Sessions:

  • Group workshops in person/ online

  • Individual 6 weeks (6 sessions) NVC training (personalized to your real-life situations)

  • Bi-weekly open drop-in online practice sessions

  • Monthly workshops at Sanya Eco Spa (starting 3/11/23)


What Happens in a Reflection Session

  • Creating a safe container to support what wants to unfold inside

  • Checking in where we are at the moment, what is alive in us 

  • Naming what you are longing for

  • Acknowledging what changes in us throughout the process and what comes up 

  • Resulting when a stable emotional plateau is reached 

  • Formulating subsequent steps that will bring you closer to your harmonious goal

Your Facilitator Rico Bergemann

Rico from Berlin is passionate to work to restore harmony and compassion within one's self, a relationship with others, and the environment. He uses his intuition and insights gained from his life and work experiences. His background started as an athlete, in sports school, and with a degree in mechanical engineering. After his studies, his travels all over Europe allowed him to work and experience varied vocations, from assisting in teaching in a primary school,  working as an engineer in Germany, picking grapes in Switzerland, assisting a car mechanic, living in an Eco-village in Sicily, working in construction in Malta and many more.

He is currently undergoing the certification process by The Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC).


Through this variety, he learned how to connect and empathize with many diverse people from different backgrounds. He explored self-development, starting with meditation; he then pursued varied self-improvement practices such as Non-Violent Communication (NVC), Tantra, Bhakti Yoga, and Vipassana. He discovered how beneficial for one's well-being it is to regard the whole spectrum of human needs; such as physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.


He became very motivated to address communication struggles in his relationships, which led him to discover NVC. A great tool to re-establish compassion while considering all needs involved to find solutions that work for everyone. Through following questions like “Who am I?” and “What is life about?” he became rooted in self-inquiry, leading him to share these benefits with others. The shift in perspective can support life to become easier and more joyful.

Language of the Heart

Rico supported my partner Dara and I in a spontaneous reflection session when we were stuck in some patterns that were creating violent communication and passive aggression. His ability to listen empathically and neutrally was a great support for us to bring the situation into the depth of what we were truly feeling inside ourselves and beyond the surface projections. I thoroughly encourage you to enjoy time with Rico and allow him to reflect what you may be finding hard to see. This intuitive ability that he shows, feels natural, loving and sincere.



Simon Paul Sutton

I can highly recommend Rico as a fascilitator and wonderful human being. When witnessing and benefitting from the gentle and yet profound work he offers I felt immediately seen and held in a space of great empathy, non-judgment and love. Its hard to describe something that unfolds so naturally and let’s the heart melt so softly. And It’s really worth it.



Dara Stara

Joining the NVC workshop with Rico was a truly heart-opening experience and gave me the opportunity to practice this communication tool with others during the workshop using real-life scenarios. Rico holds space in such an inspiring way, allowing the NVC group to learn together, and allowing the group to relate on an authentic level whilst encouraging self-reflection and healthy, empathic communication with others. This NVC workshop is truly motivating and I left with a sense of well-being and eagerness to continue learning with the NVC community. Thank you Rico for hosting this awesome workshop.




Participating in this NVC workshop, helped me to be more mindful about my response when I get triggered. I learned that it's important to know what I'm feeling and what I need so that I can communicate that properly to resolve a difficult situation. I learned that it's not about focusing on the other, but rather going within and being honest about what's coming up inside of me and what are my needs.
