Some experience of Nonviolent Communication would be helpful, although not essential. Nonviolent Communication is used the world over in many different settings as more and more people are experiencing the power of empathy and honesty which learning this model supports. At its heart is the understanding, common to all world religions, that living in compassion and kindness benefits ourselves and our world. We can learn to practise empathy for ourselves and for those around us and how to be honest without creating more conflict. More information can be found here www.cnvc.org and at www.nonviolentcommunication.com
