"When our communication supports compassionate giving and receiving, happiness replaces violence and grieving" - Marshall Rosenberg

What kind of world do you want to live in?

Can you imagine what it would it feel like to live in a world where cultural differences are bridged by a shared understanding of our inter-connectedness? At the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) we long for connection and collaboration with people around the globe, people just like you, who share our passion for peaceful, life-serving resolution of conflicts.

We are reaching out to you to invite connection and partnership, to share some CNVC celebrations from 2013 with you and to extend the opportunity to share in the joy and pleasure of giving. The response to our past annual letters has always been supportive and generous, and we want you to know we are grateful for you and our entire community.

2013 has been a transformational, landmark year for CNVC

CNVC Certified Trainer Activities

CNVC Certified Trainers teamed with CNVC to conduct a 9 day IIT in Kenya that was offered without cost (other than travel) to participants.
Participants then returned to their communities to share NVC in African orphanages and impoverished rural schools, among others.
NVC projects were conducted bringing NVC to families and groups in India and Sri Lanka.
Workshop participants are learning the 'dance' of compassionate communication and about Buddha's empathy in India.
We know of CNVC Certifed Trainers training people in NVC in the Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and many more countries around the world.
People were skiing and NVC-ing in the Swiss Alps!
CNVC Certified Trainers are bringing NVC to schools, childrens' hospitals and prisons throughout the United States.
Racial barriers were crossed bringing NVC to a 4000 member staff at a children's hospital in Seattle, Washington.
This is just a small sampling of the exciting efforts being made worldwide to bring more compassion and peace to the world through NVC. We honor all these efforts; as well as acknowledging the thousands of acts of compassion you and others have done to share NVC globally.
