A. Approximately how many training days did you have this year?: 
B. Briefly list the groups and organizations you worked with this year as a trainer.: 
self organized trainings in yoga centers, vacation resorts and seminar houses in many different places (Hamburg, North Germany, Greece, South France) a group of parents in Bochum a group of teachers in Hamburg
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?: 
Offering two residential trainings of 10 and 4 days together with other trainers, facilitating deep transformational processes there. To watch people who attend trainings regularly slowly grow into their power, find more peace in their lives, discover who they really are. Offering a 4-part training to 18 people in the course of the year bringing NVC together with Kundalini Yoga - a great mutual enhancement!
F. How do you teach the spiritual basis of Nonviolent Communication in your workshops and training programs? : 
I point out that we all share the same needs and all are here to experience being a human being, and to learn to love unconditionally. "If you can't see Gofd in all, you can't see God at all".
G. Please describe your social change goals...: 
Empower people to change their communication in their relationships at home and at the work place. Support teachers and parents to incorporate NVC into their relationship to students and children. Create a network for NVC trainers in Hamburg
J. Please describe your efforts to create, or join, an NVC circle or organization.: 
Started a process to create a NVC network in HAmburg, with a homepage for all the different trainings offered in the city and in North Germany. Planning to create an institute for NVC through which trainings can be offered by different trainers in Hamburg. Participate in Restorative Cicle trainings and offering support in this.
K. Summarize participants’ evaluations, and how their feedback resulted in new learning or growth for you this past year.: 
Participants seem to enjoy my trainings a lot, they tell me that they appreciate especially my abilty to stay present even when things seem to be stuck, my patience and non-pushiness, and my clarity to come back to the needs level whenever things become confusing. I learned how important it is to always end on a clear, present request, in any communication.
L. What are your current growing edges or challenges as a trainer that you will be working on in the future?: 
Working with business people who are biased against people who clearly don't fit into their expectation of what an NVC trainer should look like (i.e. wear a turban, like myself :-))
M. If you found opportunities to work with other trainers this year, please share the most meaningful experiences for you.: 
learning to relax and let the other trainer express what they have to say in different ways than I would have By stepping out of a position allowing others to grow into their power If I can show my vulnerabilty, this will deepen our bonds
N. Is there anything else you would enjoy sharing with the CNVC network?: 
I love offering NVC trainings and coachings - so beautiful to experience the love rising in peoples hearts!
