Since 2001, Rosemary Alden practices Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) and also teaches JSJ self help, often incorporating NVC concepts in those teachings. Her study and practice of NVC began with Holley Humphrey about the same time as JSJ. Over the years she has expanded her study and practice of JSJ alongside studying NVC with LaShelle Lowe-Charde, Mary MacKenzie, Marianne Van Djik of the Netherlands, and many others, including Marshall himself, on YouTube. Dedicated to the Marshall's principles, Rosemary sought and received approval as a "Supporter" of NVC on the CNVC website. In 2018, longing for a local NVC community, Rosemary started sharing NVC concepts in meetings based on Marshall's teachings from NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION, A LANGUAGE OF LIFE. Recently, Rosemary expanded that sharing by offering NVC Basics at the local community college.
