A. Approximately how many training days did you have this year?: 
12
B. Briefly list the groups and organizations you worked with this year as a trainer.: 
"Southwest Care","Men's Wellness", "Pecos Benedictine Monastery"
C. Approximately how many people did you offer NVC training to this year?: 
150
D. What are you celebrating about your training experiences this year? What was significant for you? What touched your heart?: 
That NVC provides me with a way to interact with people who are, like myself, yearning to express vulnerability, uncertainty, care and experience connection and share the journey of being human.
F. How do you teach the spiritual basis of Nonviolent Communication in your workshops and training programs? : 
By being as honest as i can about what spiritual means to me. The basis of spiritual as i see it is inquiry, which starts with examining, inquring into, all of one's thinking, beliefs, attitudes, knowledge, conditioning, propensities, habits, addictions etc. It also includes taking as much responsibility as one possibly can, for everything that shows up in my interior and in my exterior life.
G. Please describe your social change goals...: 
Social change is an inside job. The external manifestation flows naturally out of this internal combustion. It can't be stopped....
J. Please describe your efforts to create, or join, an NVC circle or organization.: 
I have attended 2 of Dominic Barter's workshops on Restorative Circles in Berkeley and Seattle and enjoyed meeting trainers in these places.
K. Summarize participants’ evaluations, and how their feedback resulted in new learning or growth for you this past year.: 
They invariably express gratitude for the learning....
L. What are your current growing edges or challenges as a trainer that you will be working on in the future?: 
How much to work? is a question I continue to ask. I hope to do some training in Thailand and perhaps Australia in '11. I am also wrestling with the realization that I have unconsciously bought in to some mainly Buddhist notions about life after death which seem to have suddenly imploded into stardust and i am feeling rather unsettled and find myself re-examing my life and my world view from the perspective of no after life whatsoever.....
M. If you found opportunities to work with other trainers this year, please share the most meaningful experiences for you.: 
The circle i am most involved with consists of Jim and Jori Manske and Jake Gotwals with whom I am co-creating a book.
N. Is there anything else you would enjoy sharing with the CNVC network?: 
Hugs.
