Bob Wentworth - Treasurer

Bob Wentworth is a CNVC Certified Trainer, coach, and co-founder of Family HEART Camp ( Bob focuses on ways to bring more love, empowerment, and wholeness into the world. Before discovering NVC, Bob realized that a key factor in most seemingly intractable social problems is our tendency to divide the world into Us and Them, and dismiss Them as somehow less than fully human and not worth listening to, thereby cutting off the flow of information needed to solve problems.

NVC is the best practical antidote he has found to this pervasive phenomenon, as well as offering a deep spiritual path. Bob has worked as a software architect and has a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford University.
