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:

people hugging

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

group hug

  • Teach others a way to increase inner peace, liberate themselves and strengthen relationships.
  • Share NVC in a ways 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. 
  • 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.

Seminar Language: English with Indonesian translation.

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 Sanglah hospital, following the Bali bomb in 2002. He became a CNVC trainer in 2004, and since 2013 has trained at IITs in Africa, Korea, Bali, 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 was Dorset’s long awaited dream to instigate and train at the first Bali IIT in 2017. He is now eagerly looking forward to Indonesia’s second IIT in May 2018.

ARMA resort

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. Ancient traditional Balinese archways open onto spacious terraces. A burbling brook meanders through, flanked by vibrant rice paddies. Comfortable shade covered seating areas invite contemplation and inner reflection, or places to connect with others. 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 given when welcoming, saying goodbye, or presenting food; care in making your stay as pleasant as can be; and gentle and quiet speaking voices.
You might want to consider lengthening your stay beyond the 9 days of the IIT, if possible, to absorb some of what Bali has to offer.
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$10-25/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.You can also ask Miranda, the organizer, for excellent masseurs and energy healers from around the island.
Beyond the environs of Ubud there are sacred temples, volcanoes, and beaches for both snorkeling and surfing.
