What we're about

Gainesville Nonviolent Communication is a community of folks seeking personal and collective transformation through the power of self-responsible, honest, and compassionate communication and listening. We aim to connect hearts across Gainesville using Nonviolent Communication (www.cnvc.org) and other tools. NVC is an exquisite form of taking responsibility for our lives, our communication, and our relationships.

It’s a language and set of tools for harmony where connection has been broken or lost, and for restoring a pathway to closeness, intimacy, and authentic expression with those around them.

We meet for those who want an introduction to the principles of nonviolent communication. Practice consists of teaching exercises, discussion, and role plays in which we apply NVC theory to our real lives. You are free to participate as much or as little as you would like.

Our trainers, Leif, marina, Eze, Noor and Kathleen offer workshops as well as coaching for individuals, couples and families. To get in touch, or find out more, visit www.gnvc.love

NVC Basics

Online event

This monthly workshop is designed to introduce you to some core principles and basic tools of Nonviolent Communication - compassionate communication that connects us in our common humanity.

Join Noor Alexander Dec 2, 2020 for a consciousness-raising and skill-building session in this online Introduction to Nonviolent Communication (NVC).

We can shift our consciousness to our natural way of being to care for ourselves and others by looking for the needs behind what one is saying and doing.

This bite-size event will build awareness as well as practical skills to distinguish and name what is true, what we feel & need, and make requests.
