I came to the game a little too late to actually meet Marshall (my first IIT was in Australia in 2013, led by the fabulous Robert Gonzales). And I love Marshall with all my soul. It was only two years ago that I first watched a video of Marshall, and at the end of the hour-long video, I knew exactly what I was going to do with the rest of my life - learn and teach NVC. I had spent my whole life (47 years so far) looking to understand the world, with such little success. I'd read every self-help book I could get my hands on (and yes, some were wonderful), every psychology book, every book I could about how the world works ... and what I saw around me (and inside me) still didn't make sense. And then I found NVC - oh my god. Finally, it all makes sense!!! I get now why we're the way we currently are, and more importantly, the path out of there. So, my gratitude to Marshall is massive. He's such an inspiration to me, that one man (albeit with the help of many who came after him!) could make such a diffference to so many.

Marshall, I love you!! Thank you, a million times over.
