C. Approximately how many people did you offer NVC training to this year?: 
D. What are you celebrating about your training experiences this year? What was significant for you? What touched your heart?: 
I am celebrating the growing NVC awareness in my region and how much fun doing this work is for me. Also, I am celebrating my sense of freedom and autonomy, and my sense of contribution to a more compassionate kind of parenting and education. My highlights for the year: the intense daily practice of NVC that my 4 year old daughter offers me; the growth in popularity of my NVC course for parents (meeting my needs of contribution, appreciation and community); organising Alfie Kohn's conference in Bucharest and also attending from the first row; the continuation of my work with the teachers and the parents in my daughter's Montessori kindergarten; starting a very life enriching collaboration with Concordia in Chisinau, Moldova.
E. Would you share some difficult experiences you had while training this year and how you handled them?: 
2013 is the year that my father passed away. Coming to terms with the amount of unspoken words and feelings between us is a process I am still going through, one year on.
F. How do you teach the spiritual basis of Nonviolent Communication in your workshops and training programs? : 
I try not to teach anything, but just share with people a way of being.
G. Please describe your social change goals...: 
Helping change mainstream parenting and education paradigm. Bringing more joy in people's lives and family environment.
