I am greatly celebrating launching A Path of Compassion & Empowerment (PCE), as I have long dreamed of co-creating a long-term, in-depth transformational learning community program based in NVC consciousness yet drawing on a variety of methodologies. I am so pleased with the depth of learning which participants spoke of, the degree of co-leadership and empowerment which I experienced in the community, and the sheer joy and aliveness of each of the four 5 day retreats we had over the course of the year.
I am grateful for my collaboration with fellow CNVC trainer Kathleen Macferran, both in co-holding PCE, as well as in co-facilitating a variety of other NVC and Restorative Circle events. I particularly appreciate Kathleen's support as a colleague, dedication to shared learning, and willingness to engage through challenge.
I am also celebrating having greatly expanded my engagement with larger mainstream institutions such as Seattle Children's Hospital. Both the opportunity to have a larger systemic impact, as well as the stretch and learning of this experience, have been profoundly meaningful to me.
Overall, I am so deeply grateful for the personal transformation which continued exploration of NVC consciousness offers me. Even as I have found myself moving in and out of periods of inner darkness and light, the journey continues to deepen and sweeten, and for this I am profoundly thankful, and at times in awe.
