“NVC is already contributing to my life. I’m feeling so peaceful and happy. The relationship between me and my parents has been developing little by little because of NVC. My husband and I feel deeper connected. I loved the empathy talks with my class partner. My husband and I decided to continue practicing together. Please bring your partner or family! You will be amazed how things change.” ~ Grace Wang
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Come learn ways to build deeper, honest, caring communication with the people in your life, ways to meet tough moments more easily, and find deeper connection when there are conflicts using NVC skills and consciousness.
This will be a 5-week series, the second of three parts, a new format responding to people’s requests for more ease. Through a combination of engaging group discussions and practice time, you gain an understanding of the basic principles of NVC. These skills are useful at work, at school, with your family, in line at the grocery store, and anywhere else that you interact with people!

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.
