Resolve Conflict. Increase Compassion. Deepen Connections. Inspire Cooperation.

Looking to strengthen your communication skills to be able to live life more fully with greater ease and enjoyment? Join us for the 16th Annual NVC Conference.

This year’s conference will be held online via Zoom so you can attend, learn, and practice from the safety and comfort of your home. Our host and sponsor, for the fourth time, is the NVC Academy, the online, world-wide hub for learning NVC concepts. 

Learn and practice skills to communicate better at home, work, and school.  Gain tools to listen with ease and care, speak with clarity, act with integrity, and inspire cooperation. Find others who share your passion for communication to support your ongoing practice. 

All skill levels are welcome!  

We are delighted to offer a Spanish track featuring six sessions, that will be available in Spanish and English, so we can all learn together, even if we speak different languages.

Get ready to walk away with skills for conflict resolution and collaboration AND discover a deeper connection with yourself through acceptance, curiosity, and compassion.

Extend your learning further by joining harvest sessions where participants share their take-aways from the day and through discussions with fellow participants!
