What I want in my life is compassion, a flow between myself and others based on a mutual giving from the heart.
-Marshall Rosenberg, Founder NVC
What is NVC?
Simply put, (NVC) is a way of relating to ourselves and others instead of letting the past dictate our present. By learning to identify your needs and express them powerfully, as well as to bring understanding to the needs of others, you can stay connected to what is alive in you and create a life that it is more fulfilling.
Non Violent Communication helps us stay connected with what is alive in ourselves and others moment-to-moment, and enhances our ability to make life more wonderful for ourselves and others.
Have you ever wondered if there was a way all people could live in peace? Have you ever struggled to reach a point of understanding with someone you care about, only to find yourselves divided by disagreements or differences? Maybe you’ve found yourself struggling to express what you really feel or what is important to you? Or, have you ever known a group of people who was unable to agree with another group—even to the point where the disagreement became life-threatening?
If so, you may be interested in learning about Nonviolent Communication.
Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
-Rumi, Soefi poet
Nonviolent Communication (also called Compassionate Communication) can be used in any interaction. NVC provides practical skills in language, awareness, and using power to communicate in ways that inspire compassionate giving and receiving toward meeting the needs of all concerned. These skills provide clarity, understanding, and connection leading to mutual respect and cooperation. Whether you're caught up in long-term hostility or a new dispute, this process can help create resolutions that are satisfying for everyone involved without painful compromise or sacrifice. NVC gives concrete tools for replacing old patterns of defensiveness, resistance, and counterattack with an experience of greater harmony and power with people. Nonviolent Communication gives everyday solutions to your most perplexing communication problems.
NVC can dramatically improve your relationships by helping you focus your attention on:
• Empathic understanding of others without compromising your own values, and
• Expressing your real feelings and needs openly and honestly, yet without blame or criticism.
Learning NVC is Learning To:
• Build relationships based on compassion and understanding
• Accurately understand other people's feelings and needs
• Be assertive and flexible at the same time

NVC work is being done in over 65 countries and growing, touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
Who Is Marshall B. Rosenberg?
"Violence in any form is a tragic expression of our unmet needs."
- Marshall Rosenberg
Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. created and has developed the process of Nonviolent Communication over the past 35 years. He has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and in many countries around the world sharing the NVC process and contributing to peace-building and reconciliation efforts in war-torn areas.
Since childhood, Marshall has sought answers to two fundamental questions: If we human beings so enjoy helping and caring for one another, why do people create such violence and suffering in their interactions, even with the ones they love? And conversely, how is it that some people can stay compassionate even under horrendous, violent circumstances?
Out of the answers he found to these two questions, Marshall developed Nonviolent Communication, an alternative way of thinking, speaking, and using power that is quite different from how most people around the world have been taught to communicate and interact.
Marshall and his associates have been teaching and applying NVC nationally and globally for over thirty-five years, in locations of conflict and violence around the planet: Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Ireland, Southeast Asia, South America, as well as throughout the U.S., Canada, and western Europe. NVC has been used to heal discord, improve relationships, and enhance performance in virtually all areas of human activity, including schools, businesses, prisons, hospitals and governments, with police, gangs, military personnel, activists, parents, children and couples.
