Stephanie is a Certified Trainer and Assessor with the Center for Nonviolent Communication as well as a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction - MBSR Qualified Teacher and has trainer extensively both with the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society and the UCDS Mindfulness-Based Professional Institute. Stephanie is also a certified Yoga Instructor.

Stephanie is passionate to share her understanding of NVC as a life-long practice to empower oneself and others to celebrate the humanity in one’s own being, and to encounter the humanity in the other person. NVC offers transformational processes to support the journey from human to humane by providing clear tools for healing and reconciliation of warring parts within our psyche, for emerging into our wholeness, for consistently re-connecting with our authenticity, and for practicing the gift of mindful and compassionate presence for ourselves and others.

MBSR classes offer a path of personal inquiry and specific mindfulness practices that support self-empowerment by reducing reactivity, increasing well-being and aliveness, and learning new ways to relate to ourselves, others and life. By learning to cultivate the intrinsic natural human capacity of mindfulness we proactively respond to needs for self-mattering, self-care and self-responsibility.

Ian was born in the UK and now lives in Bucharest, Romania with his daughter, wife and black Labrador. He also lived in Poland for many years, playing a part in the rapid growth of NVC awareness there. Together with Monica (his wife - also a Certified Trainer), he runs the Romanian Association for NVC which aims to be the focal point for bringing NVC to Romania.

Ian’s background is originally in the corporate world where he worked in financial audit and HR before embarking on a radical change of direction after discovering NVC in 2001. He was certified as a CNVC trainer in 2008 and integrates NVC into his business training, facilitation and coaching as well as offering NVC programs in personal development and for couples and parents. He is also a Solution Focus coach and a team coach for the Romanian part of the Team Academy network of ‘alternative’ educational approaches.

In his work he seeks to combine the transformational quality of NVC with the pragmatic and, despite their popularity, resolutely refuses to use puppets in his workshops. Though some close to him might disagree, he is also known for his humour!
Michael Dillo
I was born in Hannover, Germany in May 1958. After leaving school I began studying civil engineering – a path that was based on my motivation to get my fathers acknowledgement as I realized many years later. He was a civil engineer too. In my Ph.D. thesis I specialized in underground constructions in rock, a decision that paved the way for my move to Switzerland where I live to this day.

I enjoyed living in this beautiful country but I started to feel increasingly dissatisfied with my job as an engineer. I was disheartened dealing with technical questions all day and I struggled with my fear of change and messages of: I "have” to pay for my family, I "have” to finance my house, my insurances, my car, the vacation … .

In 1997 I was inspired to attend a workshop with Marshall B. Rosenberg to find some answers to my questions and fears. During this first three day-seminar, I received some fundamental life changing answers. However, it took me quite a while to understand the difference between intellectually understanding NVC and internalizing it. For many years I began to connect with feelings and needs as I never had done in life before – I began to empathize with myself and others.

In 2002 I had begun to trust in myself so that I was able to quit my engineering job without feelings of fear or guilt. Again and again I was fascinated by and grateful for the experience that things, people, inspiration, even money come "by chance“. Since 2004, I am a certified trainer with the CNVC. In 2013 I was asked to join the CNVC assessors team of the German speaking part of Switzerland. As an assessor, I support the work of the international assessors group as a member of the CCC (Certification Coordinating Council) since 2015. It was there that I met Sylvia Haskvitz and joined the CALF-Team.
