The Listening Way
This website is an interesting collection of articles revolving around the work of Carl Rogers, Eugene Gendlin, and Marshall Rosenberg as provided by Jon Russell. Both Eugene Gendlin and Marshall Rosenberg were actually students of Carl Rogers. All of their works are quite complementary with one another. For example, much of Carl Rogers' "Person-Centered Approach" to relationships revolves around treating people compassionately (e.g.: by using "Active Listening" when they are speaking), and Eugene Gendlin's "Focusing" method helps one to get in-tune with their own bodily sensations/feelings. It is easy to see how these can interface with NVC or vice-versa.
