Nonviolent Communication - Connect from the heart 


NVC is a body of concepts, practices and wisdom developed by Marshall Rosenberg in the attempt to unveil and allow the compassionate nature of human beings to flourish. According to Marshall, such nature is a reality, but it's covered by ages of conditioning and ways of communicating that have created disconnection and violence in our world. NVC offers a map back to connection and compassion. The compass on this map is developing an awareness of feelings and needs, and slowly transform the numerous judgments and ideas of rights and wrongs, beliefs and blockages that come from our culture and education, and from any pain and challenge we may have endured. Most importantly, NVC teaches ways to communicate with other beings that can inspire and allow our compassionate nature to come forth.


NVC helped me immensely regaining a sense of self-connection that I didn't even think would be possible. Through awareness of needs, I learned to feel empowered to discern my motivations and design the life that I want. At the same time, I now have numerous tools to deal with situations that trigger me, where I feel in conflict with others, where I have regret about something I have done, and many more. NVC taught me to understand and respect my boundaries, to transform my judgments and beliefs... to be truly alive. And the more this self-love grows, the more I have understanding and compassion for people around me. My relationships have become more authentic and real. This is just a glimpse of what is available thanks to this beautiful practice.

I started studying and practicing NVC in 2013 under the guidance of Thom Bond, founder and director of the New York Center for Nonviolent Communication (NYCNVC), and since then I have collected over 500 hours of training and teaching. As of today, I am member of the core staff of NYCNVC and am involved in course coordination and outreach. I am also an active NVC mentor, practice group facilitator, and I am available for group introductory workshops. 

"NVC is a combination of thinking and language, as well as a means of using power designed to serve a specific intention. This intention is to create the quality of connection with other people and oneself that allows compassionate giving to take place. (...) All actions are taken for the sole purpose of willingly contributing to the well-being of others and ourselves. The primary purpose of Nonviolent Communication is to connect with other people in a way that enables giving to take place: compassionate giving.
