In the Spotlight:

NVC and Self-Compassion

The first ‘In the Spotlight’ of 2023 features curated content from CNVC Certified Trainer and CEO of NVC Academy, Mary Mackenzie. Understand the value of expressing yourself honestly as Mary demonstrates the 4-step NVC process to express needs clearly, honestly, and compassionately. 

Then take that energy inward with her 6-session course, Self-Empathy: Healing from the Inside Out. Mary also shares a Daily Self-Empathy Practice and an exercise that will show you how you can easily connect more deeply with your needs. 

Known and practiced worldwide, Mary's signature self-empathy processes provide clear insight into the emotional triggers and habits that get in the way of your ability to live a happy and successful life.

But often the suffering continues if we aren't addressing root causes. In studying NVC we can become more aware of what we are doing and its effects -- plus imagine and implement alternatives that lead to greater fulfillment for self and others.
