Gary Baran

M.A. CNVC Certified Trainer
President

I envision a world in which the needs of all people are honored, in which the abundant resources of our planet are both respected and also flow freely so as to reliably meet those needs, and in which people resolve their conflicts peacefully. I strive to live in harmony with the principles of NVC and to offer NVC training to the public and to those organizations and institutions that resonate with those principles. I also provide counseling and consulting services to individuals and groups, and help to contribute to the spread of NVC by serving as a member of the board of directors of the Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication. I have a special affinity with educators, having been a professor of philosophy for 35 years; with parents and mental health professionals, having been a marriage and family therapist for the same length of time--and a co-parent of two for over 25 years; and with those who are responsible for organizational leadership, having served as executive director of the Center for Nonviolent Communication for nearly 8 years. I am also especially eager to contribute to the work of social activists.

Mary Kate Land

Consultant Trainer/Facilitator
Secretary

I discovered NVC in the course of my teacher training more than 20 years ago. I was lucky enough to be in a training group with fellow teachers, run by Gary Baran. Throughout my years in the classroom, homeschooling in community with other families, and in my current role as a consultant and support group leader, I have found the ideas presented by Dr. Rosenburg to be helpful guides to connecting across differences. I'm interested in creating NVC applications that spread ideas to children and those who serve them.
