Introduction to Nonviolent Communication

Facilitator: Mitch Miyagawa

Offered at The Haven, Gabriola Island, BC 

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a world-renowned approach to relationships and conflict that has been helping people make peace in their families and their communities for 30 years.  It’s been used by couples, parents, schools, organizations, and conflict zones in the Middle East and Asia.

NVC principles combine spiritual practice with social vision, modern psychology with Gandhi, emotional awareness with focused thought.

This 3-day workshop introduces you to the core of NVC: a set of simple but profound ways to notice our inner life and the inner lives of others, and to compassionately connect to the common motivations and desires we all share.

Make peace and powerful change, inside and out.  Escape the cycle of blame and judgment.   Befriend yourself first, then your world
