What is an IIT?:

IIT – International Intensive Training is a 9-day immersive retreat in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), where 50-80 participants and 3 to 5 CNVC certified trainers dive into various workshops, home groups, practices and direct application of the principles of NVC.

This kind of training happens all over the world and is open to an international group of people from various countries, cultural backgrounds, professions and walks of life to co-create a safe space for exploring vulnerability, gaining communication skills and consciousness and fostering change on personal and community levels over an extended period of time.
IIT offers the opportunity to live Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in community with the intention of developing skills and awareness of NVC. During the retreat, participants and trainers live together in community. You learn, eat, have fun, and live with people who want to connect compassionately with each other.

An IIT was a course offered around the world by Marshall Rosenberg (the creator of Nonviolent Communication). Marshall structured it containing a core curriculum, plus other diverse content and experience brought by the individual trainers of each IIT, along with what emerges in each group.
