“My experience with James and his NVC expertise has been a fun and enlightening journey! I’m in much gratitude for the multi dimensional teaching James brings to his full body yet simplistic teaching style of compassionate communication. I was open-hearted and wanted to dive deep quickly: this course was perfect for a spiritual experience of healing my souls need for connection, peace, & joy! James is a thoughtful, energetic, and intuitive teacher: I was especially impressed and appreciative of James’ out of the box thinking re: feelings & needs that incorporated a deepening connection to ones self, others, and Source/Spirit/God! Very grateful my friend recommended this course to me.” In much gratitude, Celia Hoenig, LMFT, Sep 2020

About the 5-week Series:
We will meet as a group once a week for 1.5 hours. Sessions will start with self-connection practices, followed by check-ins. You, as a participant, will request the work you'd like to do, or any questions that you'd like to ask. The facilitator will prioritize the list and work through them with participants using Nonviolent Communication.
Review Learning Objectives:
Zoom link provided with registration.
Note: Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is not therapy -- not a clinical service. Nonviolent Communication is a "language of life" -- reference the book with that title by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. The purpose of this training is to provide information and practices for NVC self-connection. While you're invited to bring real life triggers, we will only work with feelings of intensity 5 or less out of 10 (being the most intense) -- i.e. not working with trauma. Participants are responsible for their own personal safety.
Requesting $149 for 5 sessions (effectively $30 per session) -- special pricing available for "Low Income/Students". First session is Free (same Zoom as previous series -- email me if need Zoom link). You may also send money through PayPal to email@example.com (as friend to avoid fee), PayPal with a fee, or Venmo @Jaime-Prieto-8.
About the facilitator: Hi, I'm James Prieto. I enjoy facilitating dynamic interactive workshops with experiential learning. I blend structure along with organic back and forth covering the material using improv. I've been practicing NVC since 2002, and have been facilitating NVC since 2005. I received NVC trainer certification from the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) in 2014, which took about 3 years to complete. I've had over 100 days training with experienced teachers Marshall Rosenberg (creator of NVC), Mary Mackenzie, Robert Gonzales, Jim & Jori Manske, Roxy Manning, Kirsten Kristensen and others as part of my growth journey. NVC is my passion and way of life. I'm dedicated full time to bringing NVC to individuals and organizations in Silicon Valley and online.
