Community = a group of people who care about
each other and feel they belong together.
Care. Trust. Relationship. Connection.
That's community. A tribe, if you will, of human beings with needs, hopes, and dreams who feel a sense of belonging, shared identity, and a deep level of trust towards one another. It's a way of connecting and being together in the world – a world where today's events can at times seem destined to drive us apart.
Community is no longer dependent upon location as it was in the days of our ancestors.
Worldwide community is what we've striven to create here at the NVC Academy. And it is a large part of why we began the NVC Telethon six years ago – and why we are choosing now to move away from the word, "telethon."
We wanted something unique that leaned into a sense of community, celebration, and hope.
NVCfest does that for us; we hope it touches a similar place in you.
This year, our hearts are for building community. There's something truly uplifting about having one's need for community filled. That rich glow you feel deep inside… That life-giving warmth that spirals outward, blessing each and every being you meet… That sudden knowing that together we can make a positive difference in the lives of people from all around the world…
We invite you to join us for this special day, and to be an active, living part of growing your heart for our community.
