Anonymous, Winter 2015 Collaborative Communication 8-Week Series


“I completed an NVC foundation course with Mali this winter and it was simply transformative in both my personal and professional life. Mali’s presentation and grasp of the material, as well as her honesty and ability to teach it in an accessible and meaningful way was superb. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to create deeper and more meaningful connections in their lives.”

“I found the class helpful in reinforcing that one needs to examine one’s own needs and feelings before approaching someone else with a request. I found the class encouraging students to explore various options for having their needs met rather than being set on one particular way. After a few weeks in class, I found myself more open to dialoguing with others to brainstorm solutions to conflicts, and feeling more at ease in some difficult relationships.”

“I feel that the term “Non Violent Communication” is almost too limiting to describe the dynamic nature of this course, and I would almost venture to say it is “Transformative Communication.” It has transformed the ways I perceive the world, relate to others, and talk to myself. Mali has helped me to cultivate resources – internal and external – to be “the change that you wish to see in the world.” I’ve never experienced anything quite like this, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in life to have taken this course. I wish to carry the intentions I’ve nurtured here – dearly in my heart – throughout my life.”

“I just can’t recommend Mali Parke enough as an amazing coach and Compassionate Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication or NVC) instructor.  I have had the pleasure of knowing Mali through workshops and a peaceful parenting circle and she truly emanates empathy and compassion.”

“We just wrapped up a parenting circle and it was powerful! Like one participant so aptly said, “it was worth every dime just to connect with this community!”. Mali has a unique gift of pulling people together and creating an atmosphere that is conducive to sharing and learning with eachother. She also shared skills and concepts that you will be able to implement readily into your parenting. My cup was so FULL after each session! This is not just a parenting class it is a transformative and magical connecting experience. I highly recommend it! “

“Mali teaches with passion and compassion, and love. This class helped me better understand and connect with my son, especially in stressful or exhausted moments and when my patience is running thin.. I loved all the support and connecting with other parents looking for a better way to parent. I highly recommend it!”
