Center for Nonviolent Communicationsm
INTERNATIONAL INTENSIVE TRAINING
USA - Los Angeles CA, February 10 - 19, 2017
Discover skills that will help you improve the quality of your relationships, deepen your inner peace, and increase your contribution in the world.
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.
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: Personal and Professional Relationships, Inner Transformation, Contribution and social change.
We intend to prioritize these areas, and at the same time invite participants to co-create the training with us: We invite your requests for specific sessions in areas that are of particular priority to you. When you register for IIT you will be invited to put forward your requests for topics and areas of interest, and together we will weave the interests and priorities into our plan day by day during the training.
1. Personal and Professional Relationships
2. Inner Transformation
3. Contribution and Social Change
Seminar Language: English.Trainer: Sarah Peyton
Sarah Peyton offers trainings focused on learning and using resonant language to transform the brain. She brings together depth work and self-compassion that integrate Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) with the healing potential of Nonviolent Communication's verbal and non-verbal empathy. She is delighted by the self-compassion that arises from understanding how language and resonance change our brains, heal trauma and give us new energy, well-being and choice. She teaches and lectures internationally, teaches communication at the college level, and she has been published in North America and Europe on NVC and IPNB. Her work focuses on how we hear and understand one another, effective ways to connect hearts, and developing self-compassion and clarity. Her passion is watching people's self-understanding deepen into warmth. Her website is here.
Trainer: Katherine Singer
She experienced the Korean War at the age of five, and for a long time Katherine has felt a deep commitment to bringing about a world that is peaceful both within and without, by resolving conflicts in a peaceful manner. In 1970, she moved to the United States, and, in 1997, met Marshall Rosenberg. Later, she became an NVC trainer and assessor. Presently, she is serving CNVC as president of the board.
Katherine introduced NVC to South Korea in 2003 and founded the Korean Center for NVC in 2006. Now, aided by 5 full-time staff, 5 certified trainers, 20 yet-to-be-certified trainers, and many volunteers, she is relating to many aspects of Korean society in her work. The 120 members of the NVC-Based Mediators’ Association in Korea (many of them trained by John Kinyon) are serving in courts, schools, and police departments. Katherine’s hope is to contribute to resolving the conflicts between North and South Korea peacefully with this trained team of mediators.
Her main topics in trainings are how to apply NVC in deep healing, social issues, and power dynamics.
