CNVC Certifed Trainer Robert Gonzales

Robert’s passion is in the spirituality of the NVC process. He sees NVC both as a process that helps people to connect more authentically with ourselves and others, and as a spiritual practice and way of living.

Robert Gonzales received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 1989. He met Marshall Rosenberg and Nonviolent Communication in 1985, and has been offering Nonviolent Communication training in some form since 1986. His original training is as a licensed psychotherapist.

Robert is one of a team of NVC trainers, the NVC Training Institute, who offer in-depth and continuing NVC training in the United States and Europe.

He has offered Nonviolent Communication training for community colleges, high schools, churches, social workers, psychologists, mediators, teenagers, and public groups. He has taught psychology, counseling and communication at Prescott College, a liberal arts college. Robert opened the Prescott Center for Nonviolent Communication in Prescott, Arizona in June, 2000. He now is director of the Center for Living Compassion.

Robert is past President of the board of directors for the Center for Nonviolent Communication. He is a certified trainer for the Center for Nonviolent Communication and a former trainer at NVC Intensive International Trainings. He is a former assessor in North America for certifying NVC Trainers.

In 2006, Robert launched the NVC LIFE Program which is a multi-year, advanced intensive study program designed to deepen and integrate NVC consciousness into everyday life.

Robert is available to lead NVC trainings and can be reached through the NVC Training Institute or the Prescott Center for Nonviolent Communication.

Are you ready to embody this consciousness and live every moment of every day in the fullness of compassion for yourself and others? 

If so, then listen to the Living the Fullness of Life video webcast recordings with Robert Gonzales.

In this exciting, cutting-edge program, Robert has drawn from his most current personal growth experiences to inspire you to live an empowered, creative life of compassion and presence. 

  • Gain skills for living in compassion every possible moment of your life
  • Increase your ability to access your natural state of joy
  • Transform your judgments by connecting to the inherent life within
  • Expand your ability to embody the NVC consciousness

Would you like to expand your ability to live compassionately in all your relationships? 

The processes Robert develops and offers in his trainings go directly to the heart of the question: 

“How do we embody the consciousness that NVC points to and live every moment of every day in the fullness of compassion for ourselves and others?”  

Robert shares what is currently unfolding in his teaching, what new inspirations come to him, and what he’s currently passionate about.  Some of the ideas he is exploring may not be totally new, however new aspects come to him regularly, spiraling to new depths of clarity and understanding.

There are three key areas of focus in Robert’s work that he shares in this series. 

The Importance of living in the flow of life. How do we cultivate and live from a consciousness of the fullness of our essential nature, rather than the deficiency consciousness of judgment, blame and disconnection?  How do we live each and every day from the “living energy of needs” with the unimpeded fullness of life’s energies flowing through us, regardless of the conflicts or life circumstances we may be experiencing?

Developing deep self compassion.  How can we experience our inner world from a place of utter and total compassion? When we practice compassionate self-care we create an inner spaciousness that allows our life’s energies to flow. In that spaciousness both healing and inner transformation occurs.

The magic of meeting in a space of mutuality.  When two people come together in the consciousness of mutual valuing of needs the co-creation of an entirely new and distinct entity emerges.  Out of shared mutuality of needs, the “I and you” becomes this new entity of “us.” 

Please note! The webcast video files are very large. A broadband Internet connection is highly recommended.
