Shona CameronTrainer - Shona Cameron (United Kingdom)

Shona has been involved in living and sharing NVC since 2003. Her first training was with Marshall and was a 9-day IIT (International Intensive Training). She says she may never have continued with NVC if she hadn't had such a deep and life-changing experience within that training. Shona is a psychologist who integrated NVC into her professional life in schools for many years, training and coaching teachers, parents and other psychologists. She developed on the run mediation and street giraffe for teenagers. Shona views her life as a learning journey and loves to support others to live their wild and precious lives to the fullest. Now sharing NVC full time, she supports others to integrate NVC and get better and better at sharing NVC, whether through trainings or through projects. She is well known for her clarity, warmth and humour and her ability to offer feedback with precision and care. Shona continues to bring all her psychological training to supporting the growth of individuals and the growth of NVC. She is most at home on the sofa reading a book but also loves collaborating in NVC teams and travelling to new places. She is a member of the English Speaking European Assessment Team (E-SEAT) which certifies CNVC trainers. At the moment, Shona is exploring decision-making processes and postpatricidal leadership.

Trainer - Giacomo Poleschi (Italy)

I love sharing NVC by facilitating workshops and practice groups. In family contexts, education or corporate, I deal with training, parenting support, coaching and personal development, NVC mediation, facilitation of groups. In Italy, I collaborate with the Centro Esserci - NVC workshop center and publishing house, promoting NVC in various contexts, and with the nonprofit organization and educational project (www.parlarepace.it) inspired by NVC and Montessori education. I graduated in Computer Engineering at the University of Pisa and I worked in the past in the field of Supply Chain and Logistic. I met NVC in 2012 while with my wife we were waiting for Celeste, our first daughter. Since then I started my journey to learn and live NVC. In 2014 I quit my job to spend one year and a half with my daughter as a "full-time" dad. Besides spreading nonviolent communication, I share the care of my children and since 2016 I manage with my wife and a couple of friends, “In Pasta - cibo e convivio” an artisanal pasta laboratory and restaurant. Today, I live with my wife and our three children by the west coast in Tuscany, Italy.

Trainer - Marianne Göthlin (Sweden)

Marianne has been practising and integrating NVC for 27 years and was certified as a CNVC trainer in 1998. Marianne is sharing NVC internationally, collaborating with many other trainers and served as a trainer on IITs together with Marshall Rosenberg. Marianne has a deep engagement in education, using the NVC process to foster respectful dialogue in learning environments at all levels. In 1998, she co-founded a new free school near Stockholm based on NVC principles. From that and other school experiences grew a deepened interest in what makes change in an organisation sustainable, which has led to other long-term projects. “Putting myself in different cultures, often in schools, with the strong intention to connect and understand their value systems and dreams, keeps me curious, humble and ever learning.” Marianne is appreciated for embodying the subtle power of empathic presence where there is a space for everyone to be.

Trainer - Kristin Masters (USA)

Kristin Masters is committed to creating a world that works for everyone. She began her journey 29 years ago as a participatory facilitator, mediator and diversity trainer. She loves helping groups find ways to move toward the goals of their good works more easily. NVC came to Kristin via Jean Morrison early in their friendship (1995) and collaboration on the Alternatives to Violence Project at San Quentin Prison. NVC seemed like a smart addition to the conflict resolution work Kristin was already engaged in, and she incorporated it into staff trainings in her long time work as the director of the City’s community center. Early NVC exposure found her grateful to learn from Miki Kashtan how to apply NVC to principled systems change. Kristin has served on the team for the annual Nonviolent Leadership for Social Justice (partnered with Dr. Roxanne Manning and a committed multi-cultural team) since its inception. Kristin finds great interest in the inner work of NVC, drawing on Robert Gonzales’ Living Compassion work to support greater self-responsibility and freedom from the kind of suffering that stems from victim thinking. This kind of awareness of our inner world allows for an empowered approach to partnering, parenting, working and social change. In the past few years, she has reveled in study with Sarah Peyton who applies learnings from IPNB (interpersonal neurobiology) and family constellations to NVC explorations. For nearly twenty years, Kristin has been a leader in diversity issues and believes that we can heal the hurts we’ve suffered in our domination society. She anticipates great joy in the future of applying NVC to social change and healing. She also utilizes Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects – incorporating empowerment, mourning and action. “I anticipate contributing to the creation of an environment in which we choose to share, to heal, to learn from one other and to express what is alive in us as people who live in a world lacking the peace and justice we yearn for. I am a passionate advocate of creativity and justice, and I dream of a time when each person knows they are beautiful, valuable, and that their contributions are important and well received.”

Chris RajendramTrainer - Chris Rajendram (Sri Lanka)

“I met Marshall and NVC when I was studying in Ohio State University in 1996 through Maria Mankien, a close friend of mine, who was then the secretary at CNVC. NVC reinforced my studies at the University. I was involved with Paulo Freire and the Sense-Making studies at the time and NVC just gave it all a new form. I fell in love with the process. When I returned to Sri Lanka, I invited Marshall to introduce NVC to Sri Lanka and I introduced it to my teaching at the University. Since then, I have met wonderful NVC people and I wished that the whole world be full of people who lived NVC. I began my journey living NVC with 20 children who had lost their parents in the war in Sri Lanka. It has been a great journey of learning and I am looking forward to continuing the journey, learning with this IIT team."
