Nonviolent Communication

What is Nonviolent Communication?

  • Imagine connecting with the human spirit with anyone anywhere.
  • Imagine actually allowing everyone’s needs to be equally valued.
  • Imagine creating organizations good for people and the environment.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) helps connect us with what is alive in ourselves and in others moment-to-moment, with what we or others could do to make life more wonderful, and with an awareness of what gets in the way of natural giving and receiving.

Nonviolent Communication language strengthens our ability to inspire compassion from others and respond compassionately to others and ourselves. NVC guides us to reframe how we express ourselves, how we hear others, and how to resolve conflicts by focusing our consciousness on what we are observing, feeling, needing, and requesting.
NVC "the language of the heart" awakens empathy and honesty.
