We are friends of Capital NVC, Inc., a nonprofit organization committed to the growth of Nonviolent Communication in the Greater Washington DC Metropolitan Area and to creating peace and understanding in the world. Nonviolent Communication (NVC, also called Collaborative Communication or Compassionate Communication) offers a set of ideas and tools designed to help foster understanding of and compassion for ourselves and others, and support us in living in alignment with our deepest values.
These ideas and tools can be used in everyday conversation, to transform conflict situations, and to support personal well-being and all kinds of relationships. We've found them to be useful in a wide variety of contexts -- personal relationships, parenting, work environments, in healing trauma and facilitating reconciliation -- and in living in a way that offers more aliveness, joy, and love.
We welcome all who are curious about how to relate to ourselves and each other in more satisfying ways. To learn more about Capital NVC, Inc., visit www.capitalnvc.org.
