About the event

Join me along with other Certified NVC Trainers Roxy Manning, Kathleen MacFerran, and Sarah Peyton for a Virtual IIT (International Intensive Training).


(Please register at the above website rather than through this RSVP link.)

We learned to speak — and to keep silent — as toddlers, and our patterns of communication are as deeply ingrained as our native tongues. One can get a sense of the basics of Nonviolent Communication in a couple of hours. Taking the practices into our everyday lives, though, requires immersion. Taking on a new language — one that leans toward self-acceptance rather than self- criticism, toward open curiosity rather than judgment, spacious choice rather than reactivity — requires time and practice in the context of a loving and supportive community.

This VIT has the potential to change our relationships to ourselves, to our loved ones, to the people we find most challenging, and to the wider systems in which we live. We’ll emerge with more resources to be most fully ourselves, more empowered, more loving, more present. It is a great gift to give yourself and everyone whose life you touch.

Benefits of a virtual training By attending a virtual training, you will have the unprecedented opportunity to both be immersed in the material, and to bring it home to your own environments every day. Comfort, connection and immediate integration, especially with this particular group of life-transforming trainers, create a powerful and unforgettable field to support the movement into mastery.

A note on the pricing of this 9-day training:

This intensive training is offered at $1700, which includes all of the teaching and small group meetings during the nine days of training, plus unlimited access to the teaching sessions by video, so you can repeat sessions you enjoyed and see any of the sessions you miss whenever you want.

Roxy, Sarah, Kathleen, and  I very much want the virtual intensive training (VIT) to be accessible to all who would like to participate, and we realize that the tuition will be inaccessible to many, especially at this time of high unemployment and general economic uncertainty.  At the same time, CNVC is offering the training at this price, similar to pre-covid training prices, because CNVC itself is in a very difficult financial situation, and this VIT and the others offered this year will help the organization to remain afloat.

We actively encourage those for whom the price is prohibitive to ask for a full or partial scholarship.  We also actively encourage those who are able to contribute to our scholarship fund to do so, so we can make the training as accessible as possible.  I will post a link for contributions to our scholarship fund as soon as it is available.
