Sharing Compassionate Communication is a joy for me!  My workshops are interactive, safe, and fun spaces where we practice connecting from the heart.


 What Can you Expect to Learn

Complimentary Workshops

NVC guides us to connection in 3 ways:

1) SELF-EMPATHY (transforming the weeds of our mind into mental nourishment)

“Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”- Rumi 

2) EMPATHY (non- judgmental presence with another)

"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud." – Maya Angelou

3) HONESTY (expressing one's truth in a way that can be heard.) 


[Daring greatly] means the courage to be vulnerable.  It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you need.  To talk about what you’re feeling.  To have the hard conversations.” – Dr. Brene Brown


I dream that everyone who wants skills for creating a world that works for all, has an opportunity to know about Nonviolent or Compassionate Communication.
Toward that vision, I choose to offer as many introductory workshops or presentations as my energy allows. (Honorariums much appreciated!). All you need to do is give me a call to see if your group qualifies. Just let me know the number of people, what your group's mission is and how you see my work might contribute to the group's effectiveness and/or to the individuals who are part of the group.
I look forward to hearing from you and being of service.

​Organizations desiring their members or employees to receive this training, can anticipate that I will work with them to make it work depending on number of participants and length of training.

​My requested fees when working with corporations is only slightly more than the "ask" for non-profit organizations.  Approximate suggestions for remuneration are,  for example:  $450 for a half day workshop.  Fee requests are "requests" and I like to be open to consider needs and arrive collaboratively on a fee.

 "Love Offering" presentations are also a possibility.
