Dates: Series meets each second Saturday of the month: Sep 10, Oct 8, Nov 12

Time: from 10am to 2pm (4 hours).

Location: This in-person offering takes place in various parks in the SF Bay Area/Silicon Valley California.

  • Sept 10 - Sunol Regional Wilderness (East Bay)
  • TBA Oct 8
  • TBA Nov 12
 

Each month, we will meet at a Bay Area park to focus on a different NVC component (Observations, Feelings, Needs, Requests) mapping it to the 4 directions of the Wild Mind Map* - you will be invited to deepen your resourcefulness of each through natural metaphors, archetypes of wholeness, windows of knowing and nature-based practices.
 

I have found that merging the modalities of NVC with Wild Mind in an integral fashion grounds me in my life experience by connecting to life through full-present sensing, embodied feeling, deep imagination and heart-centered thinking. This in-person offering is complementary to the online 10-week series Wholistic NVC.

    1. Services Provided
    Consulting, Coaching, Training, Facilitation services are provided. 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 coaching and training is to provide information about NVC related practices. While you may be invited to bring real life situations for practice, we will only work with feelings of intensity 5 or less out of 10 (being the most intense) -- i.e. not working with trauma. Consulting clients, coaching clients and workshop participants are responsible for their own personal emotional safety.
    
    2. Prices And Payment
    Prices for workshops or events are listed in the website; promotional coupon codes may provide discounts to stated prices. Coupon use is required at the time of registration and may not be applied retroactively. Hourly service prices are negotiated and agreed by all parties and confirmed via email. Payment is expected before the scheduled session begins. Services scheduled may be rescheduled without penalty if done with a 24 hour notice; "no shows" forfeit payment.

    Requests for refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis, in a good-faith effort to acknowledge everyone's needs. The refund period for multi-week services extends to the first two sessions; no refunds are given the day after the second session. Refunds for services purchased online incur a 6% service charge to cover transaction and administration fees. Some trainings require changes to be notified some time before the event and are listed in the event description. Complaints should be directed through the Contact form on the home page; the consultant providing the service will communicate in integrity with the values of nonviolent communication (NVC). If an impasse is reached, and the stakes warrant, another NVC mediator will be used to facilitate a dialogue in addressing the complaint. Hourly 1:1 sessions are not refundable.
