I am a certified NVC trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, USA. My informal journey with NVC started in 2009 when one of my course instructors, Nancy Good in the Conflict Transformation course at Easter Mennonite University, introduced Marshall’s work. My formal journey with deeper exploration of compassionate communication started in November 2016. My self-care, community practice, training and teaching–all are significantly shaped by the core values and principles of NVC. To me, the practice of NVC is a life-long journey.
