San Francisco Women's NVC Group - Now forming!

Our Voices, Our Bodies, Our Relationships.

A six-week NVC series for women seeking nourishing and authentic relationship with other women.

Thursday evenings, March 14 through April 18 (6 weeks)


This group is a safe place to bring up issues related to body image, showing up fully in romantic relationships, the desire to balance self-care with care for others, intimacy in and out of the bedroom, and more.

Ultimately, you are welcome here, with all that stirs in you about what the heck it means to be a woman on this earth today.

Come, you powerful, alive, brilliant women: Together we will harness the wisdom of NVC to transition from shame to self-love; to cultivate unconditional regard for our bodies, exactly as they are; to practice showing up in our simplicity - no shows, tricks, or hooks needed; and to speak our truth with unwavering clarity.

This is a group for women who are relatively new to the practice of NVC, and wish to strengthen your grasp and integration of its core concepts both for the sake of personal healing and practical navigation of everyday conversations.

"This group has been so helpful for me.  It’s not only giving me tools for communicating with others, but perhaps more importantly, giving me insights into my own inner world and the ongoing dialogue that takes place there.   It has been also been greatly supporting my client work in my private practice.  The permission and encouragement to focus on needs is really life changing." - A.R., Berkeley women's group participant
