“Never again will you believe that a person is too hard to work with, a decision too complicated to make, or a conversation too difficult to have.”
This course is essential if you are interested in:
* Communicating clearly and effectively
* Building stronger relationships with others (and with yourself!)
* Initiating and navigating even difficult conversations
This will be a 6-week series. Through a combination of engaging group discussions and practice time, you gain an understanding of the basic principles of NVC. These skills are useful at work, at school, with your family, in line at the grocery store, in social action situations and anywhere else that you interact with people!

Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall Rosenberg is our class textbook for at home learning. If you enjoy learning by writing, you may also want to get a copy of Nonviolent Communication, A Companion Workbook by Lucy Leu, which has written exercises and activities for each chapter of Marshall Rosenberg’s book. These books are available at CNVC.org or Amazon.com or at your local library.
Meganwind Eoyang came to the study of Nonviolent Communication from a very different world. She grew up street fighting on the south side of Chicago. Her longing for sweet, deep connection with fellow humans arose after first finding safety and meaning in nature. She was excited to discover that Nonviolent Communication offers clear steps for practicing the compassion, self-love, and love for others which her Chinese, European and North American (and other) spiritual traditions invite us to live. She has been a trainer with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication since 2004.
