Every year we put our heads together to come up with creative (and hopefully inspirational!) themes for this fun annual event. In years past we've explored mutual sustainability, expanded our scholarship fund, celebrated the NVC Academy's 10th Birthday, and focused on growing the NVC Multimedia Library in ways that will enable it to more effectively meet the needs of our flourishing NVC Community.
This year's theme? Get the Word Out!
When you partner with us this year, you'll be actively helping us "Get the Word Out!" about NVC, ensuring that:
- The practice of Nonviolent Communication continues to move into the mainstream — shared inside as well as outside our community —by making and strengthening connections with other worldwide peace-based organizations, even those who think differently than we do;
- NVC remains relevant and in touch with the needs of all humanity by increasing the diversity in our community and our courses;
- Enthusiasts can connect with trainers from a wide variety of cultures and lifestyles — no matter where they live;
- Discounts and full scholarships continue to be offered to folks who might otherwise be unable to attend NVC-related programs;
- The vital living partnership that's the foundation of the NVC Academy and its team is carried forward and sustained.
Together we can make a positive difference in the lives of people from all over the world.
Join us, won't you?
Come for the whole day, or drop by for a while. Each session is only 50 minutes long, which — if there's one session in particular that grabs your interest — makes it easy to fit into a busy day. Not only will you be boosting your NVC practice, you'll be helping us "Get the Word Out" while enjoying a time that promises to be rich with inspiration, laughter, and that wonderful blessing of community.
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.
