“I cannot express how delightful it was to learn the necessary tools to check in with myself and put into words the needs I may or may not be getting in those moments. And most importantly thank you for … [the] simulated conversation I will be having with my father. That exercise conversation gave me hope and a sense of peace I’ve been searching for my entire life.” ~ Mike Rivera

Meganwind Eoyang came to the study of Nonviolent Communication from a very different world. She grew up street fighting on the south side of Chicago. Her longing for sweet, deep connection with fellow humans arose after first finding safety and meaning in nature. She was excited to discover that Nonviolent Communication offers clear steps for practicing the compassion, self love, and love for others which her Chinese, European and North American (and other) spiritual traditions invite us to live. She has been a trainer with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication since 2004.
