“Nonviolent Communication shows us a way of being very honest, without any criticism, insults, or put-downs, and without any intellectual diagnosis implying wrongness.”
~ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Marshall Rosenberg

Nonviolent Communication has been called a language of the heart, a transformational process, and an amazing tool for improving relationships. People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.

Kristin will invite participants into a realm that allows for greater self responsibility in the ways we think and communicate with others, but also into ways to make contact with warmth, curiosity and compassion. (It might just change your life.)

If you are new to NVC, or attended an Introductory evening, or just want a refresher–this class is for you. In this six week hands-on, experiential course, you will investigate the application of the principles and frameworks of  you Nonviolent Communication, and also how -OFNR (observations, feelings, needs, requests) help us to have both honest and empathic conversations with less defense and more trust built relationally.

Each week, students will return to notice how they used these frameworks, how they can increase their skills and make NVC a life practice.



Students are encouraged to read the book “Nonviolent Communication: Language of Life” during the course. Books can be purchased in advance from a bookstore, Amazon on line or at cnvc.org
