Over the years, I have enjoyed learning from various NVC trainers with a diverse depth of experience and areas of focus. I have had the opportunity to meet some of them through traveling. A dream of mine is to make NVC accessible locally (and financially) for us all.
I met Francois Beausoleil through attending the BayNVC North American Leadership Program in 2012. I enjoyed his approach to shifting blame, re-empowering yourself through any and all situations, and living towards greater joy. Lately, he has finished a book and a specific process on living in this “Blame Free State,” as he calls it.
When I heard from many of you a desire to continue your NVC explorations as well, it was with joy and hope that I dreamed and planned with Francois a year-long NVC program in the Washington DC area, which would include other traveling trainers.
In late June, however, we received news of some significant shifts among the offerings, and we decided to postpone the year-long program for a while. We realize that this may have been a disappointment to some of you, and I hope that I have contacted everyone who expressed an interest in registering. (If not, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
“And,” as we often say in NVC, there is a gift in any challenge. The gift that we’re unpacking here is to continue connecting to YOUR needs and find out how to best support and serve you locally. With that intention and effort, I am now redirecting some of our initial energy in several upcoming offerings this Fall/Winter, including two series of “Practicing Ahimsa: Nonviolence in our Hearts and Words“, a Level I and (new!) Level II course (TBA).
And Francois Beausoleil WILL come to DC January 8-10 for a three-day intensive on Living in the Blame Free State! (Space will be limited to 15, so sign up early!).
I will maintain as well the Intensive Retreat for partners, singles, and everyone in between, focusing on “Relating with Choice, Harmony, and Natural Giving in our Relationships.” Dates TBA Spring 2016.
Contact me if you are interested. If you want to support my vision to invite diverse trainers to the Washington DC area in 2016 and 2017, contact me as well!
