I offer training to anyone with a desire to learn about the spirituality and consciousness of NVC and desire to integrate it into their lives and in their relationships. I am particularly-passionate about sharing NVC with educators and youth workers, among adolescent youth and young adults, among parents and families, community groups, and among social and environmental activist organizations.
Throughout my life, I have been consciously seeking a response to my deep concerns about global and local peace, social justice, and environmental awareness, that genuinely satisfies the profound depth, breadth and universality of these concerns. I discovered early-on that the suffering I perceived in these three spheres of global society (peace, social justice, and environmental awareness) shared some common origins. I also realized the necessity for a helpful and healing response to be informed-by, and grounded-in our deepest spiritual values and consciousness, which affirm our interdependence and compassionate true-nature. I have found that NVC actually provides a most compelling and clear framework for understanding the origins of our human suffering and the means to create greater peace, harmony, joy and respect in all our relations. I find it to be both elegantly simple, yet profound in the true scope of its implications for a freer and more fulfilling life both individually and collectively. Personally, it has aided me in moving from despair to empowerment and has helped restore hope and passion in my own life. It is my heart's desire to spend my life-energy in this lifetime sharing the consciousness and practical tools of NVC with others with the intention that it may enrich their life, and that in sharing this learning we may all realize our interdependence in the process. I value the integrity of the core principles of NVC and integrate elements from the other four main fields of inquiry that I have extensive experience in: transpersonal counselling psychology; mindfulness meditation/Buddhist psychology; systemic constellations; and wilderness rites of passage.
