I just came across this conference this weekend and it looks amazing! For anyone looking to improve their communication in relationships, at work or with yourself, this should be a great event.
I started reading the book this week and just love it. So if your interesting in coming along let me know.
Nonviolent (or Compassionate) Communication is based on the techniques created by Marshall B. Rosenberg, a psychologist and peace activist in the sixties who was interested in creating a model for communication that was compassionate and effective. He has created a worldwide movement with this model.
NVC is currently used all over in the arenas of politics, business, relationships, parents and communicating with yourself.

What is Nonviolent Communication, NVC, all about?
Nonviolent Communication, an internationally acclaimed process created by Marshall Rosenberg, is based on the principles of nonviolence, the legacy of Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King. NVC is a relational approach to personal and social transformation, a spiritual practice that helps us see our common humanity and a concrete set of tools that facilitate creative collaboration. In applying NVC we open the door to effective communication, to resolving conflict, feeling grounded and confident, able to contribute to the culture of peace at home, with friends, at work, and beyond.
