|New to Nonviolent Communication? Want to learn more?|
It is with great emotion that I write to tell you that Marshall Rosenberg passed from this life 3 days ago, on Saturday, February 7th.
It was recently discovered that he had late stage prostate cancer. He passed peacefully at home, with his wife Valentina - who shared the news with me a few minutes ago - and all his children by his side.
I know no way to describe the impact this man had on so many people - for his work and for his being, and for the extraordinary power the balance between these two unleashed. He was a beloved teacher to countless people on every continent, people whose hearts were touched and shone with the possibility his work made tangible.
To many of you reading he was also an inspired and inspiring colleague who changed the course of your lives and brought an inestimable sense of meaning and the potential for transformation to every area of your world. And who, at each moment, did this with utmost simplicity, humility and humanness.
In great mourning, and with the most profound reverence and soaring gratitude for the spirit he released in us, and whose light we carry forwards,
President, CNVC Board
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a communication process
developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg which creates a vision of
the world in which everyone's needs are met peacefully through
relationships guided by compassion. The Oregon Network for
Compassionate Communication (ORNCC) promotes the growth and
practice of NVC in Oregon and southwest Washington.
NVC can help to:
- Improve communication among family members of all ages.
- Create productive & cooperative ways of working among employees, staff & managers
- Translate wants & desires into requests that are clear, compassionate, direct & doable
- Cultivate a kinder, more authentic connection with yourself and others
- Re-establish trust and honesty in intimate relationships
