This is a Zoom course: Zoom technology allows everyone the choice to see other participants and to be seen.
(Recordings will display images of only the active speakers.)

Partner with us this November.

When you become a partner at our 4th Annual NVC Telethon fundraiser, you'll be making a positive difference in many people's lives. As a partner, you'll be actively supporting:

  1. NVC learning opportunities for people throughout the world;
  2. Enthusiasts in connecting with trainers from a wide variety of cultures and lifestyles;
  3. Discounts and full scholarships for folks who might otherwise be unable to attend our programs;
  4. NVC-based programs being created in partnership with other caring organizations, such as Sounds True and World Trust; and
  5. The vital living partnership that's the foundation of the NVC Academy, YOU, its team, and its trainers.

And last but definitely NOT least: when you become a partner you're giving yourself the gift of oodles and oodles of NVC community support.

So join us, won't you?

Come for the whole day, or drop by for just a while. Each session is only 50 minutes long, which — if there's one session in particular that grabs your interest — makes it pretty easy to fit into a busy day. Not only will you be boosting your NVC practice, you'll be supporting the NVC Academy AND enjoying a time that promises to be rich with inspiration, laughter and that lovely heart-lifting sense of community.

Ahhhh, community… Now that's the sweet spot, isn't it.

There's something truly wonderful about having one's need for community filled… having one's need for sustainability filled… and feeling that rich glow from deep inside that comes from the pure and simple joy of living and breathing NVC!

What You Can Expect

Suggested Donation

How much you donate is up to YOU. Our hope is that — just as when you're supporting other organizations that matter to you — you select the highest dollar amount that gives you ease and joy, whether that amount is $25, $50, $75, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or $2,500.

This is our one and only fundraiser of the year. So, please do contribute as much as you can!

And yes, your donation of any amount still gives you an ENTIRE day of NVC — as well as the deep joy of knowing that you'll be contributing to our sustainability and enabling us to continue supporting others…

Register today so we can all continue the supportive Nonviolent Communication work we love.
