NVC Consciousness
“Your challenge is not to keep trying to repair what was damaged;
your practice instead is to reawaken what is already wise, strong, and whole within you, to cultivate the qualities of heart and spirit that are available to you in this very moment.”  
~ Wayne Muller

If you have learned NVC and want to live it more fully in your life, imagine spending 5 glorious days totally immersed in NVC in a beautiful, serene location! Every day you and your mini-community of NVC-ers will learn, share and practice together under the guidance of two Certified NVC Trainers, enhancing and integrating your NVC skills to every aspect of your life.
