Robert Gonzales’ passion is in the spirituality of compassionate communication. He sees compassionate communication as a process that helps you connect more authentically with yourself and others, and as a spiritual practice and way of living.

Robert met Marshall Rosenberg in 1985, and has been been providing Nonviolent Communication training to community colleges, high schools, churches, social workers, psychologists, mediators, and others since 1986. A licensed psychologist and CNVC Certified Trainer from the Center for Nonviolent Communication, Robert is past President of the board of directors for the Center for Nonviolent Communication and a trainer at many NVC Intensive International Trainings, as well as a former assessor in North America for certifying NVC Trainers. He was one of the co-founders of the NVC Training Institute, a team of NVC trainers who offer in-depth and continuing NVC training in the United States and Europe.

For the first time, the NVC Multimedia Library has all nine sessions of Robert's webcasts, Living the Fullness of Life, available as a complete course with written transcripts.
