Hometown: Birmingham, England
September 17, 2012
Hi I'm David and I'm visiting the Bay Area from the UK as I research the role of spirituality in the workplace. I believe that NVC has the ability to transform our lives, conversation by conversation.
It's been part of my ongoing journey in connecting with my feelings and underlying needs. I have been inspired by the nonviolent lives of Gandhi, Martin Luther King and John Dear SJ to attempt to embody non violence in my day to day life meetings and conversations with others.
I come from the UK and I've been taught by Trish Dickinson a Marshall Rosenberg NVC trainer in Birmingham, England, who holds conversation cafes. I'm a trained facilitator for Dialogue for Peaceful Change, through Corrymeela Peace Community in Northern Ireland. I've held workshops on the nonviolence of Martin Luther King, Thomas Merton and Jesus at the Community For Reconciliation, a UK Peace Charity. My training as an Interfaith Minister has helped me to develop a safe space for people to have a heartfelt conversation
