Many of you have heard Miki’s radio program “The Conflict Hotline,” the call-in radio show that aired on KPFA between 2004 and 2006. We are very excited to announce that excerpts from this radio show are now available. We picked a variety of situations and subjects enabling the listener to witness the power of NVC in action. In her interactions with different callers, Miki models empathy, authentic and vulnerable expression, guidance, and coaching. Where relevant, she also shares examples and stories from her own life experience.

“Connected Parenting: Nonviolent Communication in Family Life” is a recording of an introductory workshop given by Inbal Kashtan in 2004 to a statewide parents’ conference. The recording covers the core principles of NVC (for example, all actions are an attempt to meet needs), some key distinctions (such as the difference between needs and strategies), and a wealth of questions and stories that are specific to parenting: working with “no”; shifting from guilt, shame, and rewards/punishment to open-hearted communication and mutual understanding; cultivating responsibility and consideration for others; nurturing compassion for ourselves when we fall short of our values; and transforming parenting to become a path toward peace in the world.
You can read more about Inbal’s approach in her article at The Natural Child Project, and you can also read the first chapter of the booklet Parenting from Your Heart: Sharing the Gifts of Compassion, Connection, and Choice by Inbal Kashtan.

One of Miki Kashtan‘s core offerings in the world is the process of Convergent Facilitation which she developed to apply the principles of NVC to the task of supporting groups in making collaborative decisions. This process has been used in dozens of settings by now, and has proven robust. While we are awaiting the possibility of finding a publisher for the manuscript Miki has written, we are making available to folks who want a basic introduction a packet that provides the core principles and flow of Convergent facilitation.
This packet begins to demonstrate how to put into practice the core principles that make convergence possible:

Miki Kashtan is celebrated by many participants in her workshops for bringing them experiences of NVC that support real integration of the core principles of NVC. This shift from how to why allows for a level of fluency that helps connect her with audiences in various settings and cultural contexts.
At the core of the Principle Based Teaching approach you will find:
