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. Meganwind is passionate about empowering inmates through NVC compassion classes in prisons and jails. She has been a trainer with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication since 2004.
