The current system of thinking and communication is what keeps the current system of a domination paradigm alive and thriving: meeting my needs at your expense. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) supports the consciousness and language of a power with paradigm —your needs and mine both matter — where joyful giving, collaboration, and gratitude is the currency of change and growth. Come, learn and practice tools to guide you on this path of being the change while doing Nonviolent Communication; a process to speak your authentic truth and listen deeply with empathy to another’s message.

“NVC is a powerful tool for peace and partnership … practical skills urgently needed for a less violent, more caring world.” – Riane Eisler
