Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers powerful tools for relating to self, others and life in more satisfying ways. It can support us in experiencing more ease, flow and joy, support emotional healing, and transform conflicts. This evening workshop will provide a taste of some key ideas that help make this practice so powerful. The format includes both conceptual material and experiential exercises.
Who This is For
This workshop is suitable for those with no prior exposure to Nonviolent Communication (NVC), also known as Compassionate Communication. It is also likely to have value to those familiar with NVC but who would enjoy an introduction to NVC from a fresh perspective.

I once asked myself the question, “Is there a single key that could make a difference in addressing all the world’s problems?” It seemed to me that if we could find ways to more reliably partner to work together, instead of battling or working at cross-purposes, then this could make all the difference. To me, NVC offers some critical pieces of the puzzle, concerning how we can be together in more satisfying ways. NVC powerfully contributes to making new things possible intra-personally (in how we relate to ourselves), interpersonally (between people), and potentially on larger scales (systemically, institutionally and politically). I am interesting in supporting the application of NVC at all these levels. I’m also interested in integrating NVC with additional knowledge, about individual thriving (especially in the face of trauma) and organizational functioning (including consciousness about use of power).
I am a CNVC Certified Trainer, and have led workshops around the world. In addition to leading workshops, I offer private sessions, coaching and mediation for individuals and couples—for learning, healing, and creating inner and outer peace. For groups and institutions, I offer facilitation and coaching to support increased effectiveness and alignment with aspirational values.
I co-founded Family Heart Camp, a collection of NVC family camps held each year around the US. I served on the Board of Directors of the Center for Nonviolent Communication. I have a Ph.D. in Applied Physics.
