Join us to be part of a compassionate community learning together how to speak from the heart;

practice deep, nonjudgmental listening; and build self empowerment from the inside out.  

Join us to be part of a compassionate community learning together how to speak from the heart; practice deep, nonjudgmental listening; and build self empowerment from the inside out. This event is a 9-day residential training designed as an "immersion experience" in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) led by a team of experienced CNVC certified trainers.

The purpose is to offer you the opportunity to live the process of NVC in community over an extended period of time, in order to develop the mindsets and practical tools to help you in three areas:

Session with Sarah

1. Personal and Professional Relationships

  • Increase connection and closeness with the people you love.
  • Speak in a way that inspires compassion and understanding.
  • Initiate difficult conversations with more ease and confidence.
  • Remain centered and peaceful when receiving difficult messages.
  • Express and receive anger fully, safely and respectfully... yet powerfully.
  • Resolve long-standing conflicts and heal painful relationships.
  • Parent children from the heart and move beyond power struggles into cooperation.
  • Translate criticism, judgments and blame into life-serving messages.

2.  Inner Transformation

  • Shift patterns of thinking that lead to depression, guilt, and shame and perpetuate pain.
  • Transform anger into self-understanding, thereby increasing inner peace.
  • Enliven yourself by expressing and receiving gratitude.
  • Learn to embody unconditional love.

3.  Contribution and Social Change

We intend to prioritize these three areas within the IIT curriculum and there is also room for co-creation. There will be opportunities for you to make requests for specific topics that you imagine will support you in applying NVC in these areas of your life. You will receive much more from this IIT if you are acquainted with the basics of NVC before you come. However, if you have no previous knowledge or experience of NVC, or would like a refresher course, a foundation training will be offered during the first three or four days of the IIT.

  • Teach others a way to increase inner peace, liberate themselves and strengthen relationships.
  • Share NVC in a way that contains/transmits it's power to transform and that inspires others.
  • Create educational systems where students love learning and teachers love teaching.
  • Learn to engage in effective, lasting nonviolent social change in the tradition of Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Seminar Language: English with Indonesian translation.

Dorsit Ross Trainer: Dorset Campbell-Ross
is passionate about music, healing, and creating peace in the world by spreading NVC. With a deep love for adventure, Dorset set off at 18 to explore the world within and without. He longed to know what we all have in common, and how to heal conflict and separation. He loved the magical power of music to create connection. For 15 years he played music professionally, and is now a choirmaster and composer in his hometown of Byron Bay, Australia. His self-healing journey led him to become a Counsellor in 1993, specialising in Codependency, and for 7 years he conducted Relationships workshops at the Findhorn Foundation (Scotland) and the Chrysalis Centre (Ireland). Dorset's commitment to work for peace was stimulated by the pain he witnessed and felt as volunteer crisis manager at Sangla hospital, following the Bali bomb in 2002. He became a CNVC trainer in 2004, and since 2013 has trained at IITs in Africa, Korea, and Europe, where he was delighted to offer his combination of music and NVC. He has also mediated family, corporate and refugee conflicts, and is now training to become a CNVC assessor. Dorset fell in love with Indonesia in 1970, and has taught NVC there for the last 12 years. It is his long awaited dream-come-true to be a part of the first Bali IIT.

Wayan Rustiasa
Trainer: Wayan Rustiasa

Wayan Rustiasa (Bali, Indonesia) is very passionate about education. He is the co-founder of the Karuna Bali Foundation that runs several educational programs in Bali, Indonesia. In 2007, he established Campuhan College that provides scholarships to young low-income Balinese, Indonesia to attend a one-year program on Leadership and Communication. The intention is to bridge the gap between high school and employment. He is also a certified trainer of Living Values Education, and has been working together with teachers in 46 elementary schools in Bali to improve the quality of education through the Living Values Program. Since he began living NVC, Wayan has passed it on to the entire staff of the Karuna Foundation. NVC is now an integral part of the curriculum of Leadership and Communication at Campuhan College. It was truly a privilege that Wayan was invited to give NVC workshops in several universities in Java (Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta) and also in Ambon, Moluccas. He is delighted that an IIT will be held in Bali, Indonesia and to be part of it. He believes it is a tremendous gift because it offers the opportunity to spread peace throughout wider Indonesia.


Venue: Agung Rai Museum of Art (ARMA) & Resort

Poised on six hectares of exquisite Balinese gardens, the design of Museum and Resort seamlessly reflects the ARMA philosophy of balance between man and environment. ARMA is more than a Museum or Resort. It blends Art, Culture, and Architecture with Nature.

The main meeting room (or wantilan) is about 100 metres walk from the palatial Thai restaurant where our buffet style meals will be taken.
Upstairs in the restaurant is a large airy room that will be our second meeting place.

The third meeting place is in an open-sided building by the resort pool. If the weather is bad we will move to a room inside the art museum.
To read more about ARMA please go to their website here

What's so special about Bali? Bali is an exquisite tropical island full of surprises and delights for mind, body and spirit, but what makes Bali truly unique is the people. The Balinese culture is a mix of animism, Buddhism and Hinduism. The result is a people who are in love with their gods, family, and community, and express their love through beautiful art, music, and dance. This expression of beauty and spirituality is seen in daily prayers of gratitude, and offerings of flowers and incense to the gods; carvings made on every structure; flowers placed on beds, pathways, and in the bathroom; smiles are given when welcoming, saying goodbye, or presenting food; care in making your stay as pleasant as can be; and gentle and quiet speaking voices.

Ubud, the venue for the IIT, is famous for healing, yoga, massage, food, art, music, and dancing. The name Ubud is derived from the word Ubad, that means medicine in Balinese. It was named in the 8th century by a Javanese priest, Rsi Markendya, who meditated at the auspicious confluence of the two rivers in Campuhan. He also found many medicinal herbs growing on the river banks there.
Balinese dances, with gamelan music accompanying them, are happening every night of the week in temples around Ubud.

Yoga studios are liberally scattered around the town, along with an abundant variety of restaurants and massage spas. Yoga classes are US$12-15/hour. Massages cost US$8-16/hour.
Cooking classes: Learn to prepare 9 dishes of Balinese food in a beautiful day spent in a country kitchen.

Bicycle rides are available in which you are transported to the top of a mountain, given a wonderful meal, and then given a bike to cycle downhill all the way back to Ubud, stopping on the way to learn about paddy field irrigation, straw mat weaving, and coffee growing.
Gentle river rafting is also available in the nearby Sayan valley.

Beautiful walks can be taken in the paddy fields, and organic, raw and vegan food is available in many restaurants.

Of special interest to some may be a visit to a traditional healer, or Balian. For more info please ask Dorset. He has worked formerly as a guide in Bali, and is a fountain of local knowledge.
Beyond the environs of Ubud there are sacred temples, volcanoes, and beaches for both snorkeling and surfing.


By air: Denpasar is the nearest airport, and is about a 1-hour drive away from Ubud. A four-person taxi costs US$36 ($9/person) one way, and cheaper shuttle buses will also be available at peak times.
