Workshops & Schedule

Dear Friends,
    In addition to the classes and workshops listed on the home page , I am now scheduling private sessions, workshops and retreats with families, communities, organizations and businesses. I also am excited to share NVC-based mediation with you- a method of conflict resolution and connection where everyone's needs are met and where skills applicable to daily life are learned.  I also am excited to offer NVC-based coaching to you, sessions where deep healing and transformation of core hurts and beliefs are possible and where you will learn and practice concrete skills for your day to day relationships and encounters.  We call this "street giraffe"- learning to express yourself and hear others naturally, without judgment, blame, criticism, anger, shame or depression.

 I also am making a commitment to bing the skills and consciousness of Nonviolent Communication to communities and populations who are suffering from violence,hopelessness and lack of support. Please send me your requests, dreams, ideas and support about this. Please let me know if you would like to register, and please help me publicize the events by letting your friends, family and colleagues know.  I look forward to creating the quality of connection between us that makes giving and receiving joyfully possible.
