About Non-Violent Communication
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a way of communicating that allows us to stay connected to compassion. It also enables us to speak and act in a way that is in alignment with our desire to hold others with consideration and contribute to their well-being.
It involves a four step process created by Marshall Rosenberg, founder and director of educational services for the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC), an international peacemaking organization. He founded the NVC process in the 1960's and Nonviolent communication is now used all over the world.
Rosenberg, the 2006 recipient of the Global Village Foundation’s Bridge of Peace Award, has traveled all over the world helping others resolve conflicts and has written the book Nonviolent
Communication: A Language of Life. He studied with Carl Rogers and often cites to works of Walter Wink and Raine Eisler.
Rosenberg recently passed away, but his legacy of spreading peace through compassionate communication remains.
