Program Details

For everyone.

How do you respond to difficult people and challenging conversations? Nonviolent Communication offers tools for creating mutual understanding, trust, intimacy, and meaning in your relationships.

Based on the work of Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication, and led by two trainers who have cotaught many intensives with Marshall, this program helps you transform how you relate to others—by practicing self-empathy, connecting to the needs of others, and asking for what you want.

Whether you are new to Nonviolent Communication or want to deepen your practice, you’ll learn practical skills, including how to

  • Stay self-connected during challenging conversations
  • Listen to yourself and others, even when triggered
  • Discern what matters to you on a core level
  • Create strategies that work for everyone
  • Speak from your heart—with honesty and connection.
