Nonviolent Communication guides us to connect to ourselves and others in the fullness of our human-ness from our hearts. In these times of limiting physical contact, this kind of heart-based connection is even more important and vital to our well being. This Virtual Intensive Training (VIT) offers an opportunity to strengthen our inner connection and connection to others in community, as well as an opportunity to heal, learn, grow, clarify, and restore.

 

At the heart of this Virtual Intensive Training (VIT), you will discover simple yet deep practices for self-connection and discernment, listening empathically through tough conversations, and finding common ground, and speaking your truth with power and compassion. Embodying Nonviolent Communication’s compassionate nature requires personal, deliberate, committed, intentional practice, honing our empathic faculties, and gently attuning to what we feel and to our present and deep needs. This is where we come face to face with our deeper selves and our greatest gifts: the motivation to heal past hurts and develop new, more skillful, inclusive responses to life's challenges.

 

 

This learning and embodiment will be accelerated by doing it together, in a virtual community created over nine days.

 

Training virtually offers the advantages of allowing the time and space needed for learning to settle in. Each day we tune in at a certain time, practice together, and bring it directly to our homes and into our daily lives without having to travel! It also gives us ease in continuing the international quality and experience of intensive NVC trainings. For this VIT, we will be holding sessions in English and Spanish with consecutive translation, encouraging people from throughout the Americas (and around the world) to join us. We are excited about creating this international, bi-lingual community together, fostering connections across the Americas (South, Central and North).

Seminar Language: English with Spanish translation.

Fabiola FuentesTrainer: Fabiola Fuentes I am a lawyer and I hold a Master's degree in Political Science in Colombia, my country of origin. I lived in Britain for 11 years where I studied Nonviolent Communication (NVC) from 2001 with Marshall Rosenberg and other mentors, and in 2004 I was certified as a CNVC trainer.
My passion is to work with individuals and communities who wish to contribute to making this planet a better place, healing their families, their communities, their workplaces and their organizations, creating trust, connection, cooperation and teamwork. I have done this work in different places in England, Scotland, Sweden, Spain, Colombia, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Argentina. In my work I also include other tools like permaculture, Transition Towns and support of the local economy. My intention during this VIT is to support participants to learn and apply nvc principles, to listen, connect and value their own resources, using a participative approach based on Paulo Freire´s popular education. I am also interested and willing to create and to hold the space for transformative conversations that matters to participants.


Robert GonzalesTrainer: Robert Gonzales has contributed to the work of the International Center for Nonviolent Communication as a Certified Trainer, serving as a Certification Assessor, and as former President of the Board of Directors. He continues to serve as a trainer for International Intensive Trainings (IITs). As the director of the Center for Living Compassion, he conducts seminars and retreats internationally. Robert's work, Living Compassion has emerged from a lifetime of inquiry into the intersection between spirituality and human communication. His primary influences include Dr. Marshall Rosenberg (founder of Nonviolent Communication), Stephen Schwartz (creator of Compassionate Self-Care). His trainings offer ways to cultivate daily practices for living life fully, grounded in compassion for one’s self and others. The integration of self-compassion and compassionate communication is at the heart of his work. "All my life, I have yearned for practical ways to integrate the depth and richness of spirituality with the realities of daily life and relationships. As a psychotherapist and teacher, I worked to develop and offer effective pathways to the most enriching and authentic experiences of life.

He holds one MA in International Relations (ICU, Tokyo), focused on Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies, and another in Social Sciences (University of Chicago, USA), focused on Systemic Social Innovation.
Alongside his partner, Sandra, he’s shared NVC for over a decade all over Brazil, as well as in another 12 countries around the world. A double-national, Yuri was born and raised in Israel, and has been back there and to Palestine many times to support and lead NVC work, after years of doing human rights work in the region.
