I jumped into NVC through reading the BOOK and then attending a 10-day intensive with Marshall several years ago. I think it will take me several more years to fully comprehend the impact that those 10 days had on my being, and on my life.

In those precious few days back in 2009, I began truly connecting with my deepest longings and harshest judgements. Both of these have served as ongoing gifts in my life journey.

What I remember most clearly about Marshall was his presence. How he was not only present for himself, but also present for what was all around him. And of course, who can forget his quick wit and self-deprecating jokes! I feel that Marshall deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his enduring and life-changing contribution to our unfolding evolution of humanity.
