Trainer Team:

Robert KrzisnikTrainer: Robert Krzisnik
From early teenage years I have been inquiring into the questions of meaning of life, the nature of existence and the ways of meeting each other at the heart level. The journey led me through studying Psychology, working as a psychotherapist for 12 years, and working as a trainer, facilitator for over 30 years, covering areas from spiritual retreats to business trainings. Within the context of NVC I am most passionate about its spiritual and embodied dimensions and about conflict mediation. Besides NVC, most important explorations on my journey have so far been Soto Zen, Art of Hosting, Bohmian Dialogue, Contact Improvisation… I have been regularly serving as a trainer on IITs and have shared NVC in over 25 countries in Europe, Mideast, Asia, USA, Australia… My permanent address is in Slovenia, which used to be a part of a country that does not exist anymore, but still resides in my heart as the place where I grew up — Yugoslavia. I have given two TEDx talks, connected with Nonviolent Communication one in 2012 on Global Citizenship, and the other in 2013 on Personal Growth.




Liv LarssonTrainer: Liv Larsson
is the author of 20 books. She is a mediator and loves to be of support to people in conflict. she has been a Certified trainer in Nonviolent Communication since 2002 and an educator since 1992. Her aspiration is to release some new books during the coming years. Shame has become one of the mysteries of inner human life that Liv appreciates studying and sharing her knowledge about. Embracing shame means opening up possibilities to learning about human interaction and showing how to find dignity, acceptance and belonging.






Dymitri KopinaTrainer: Dymitri Kopina
Being human first, finding precious gift of Life in me and any other living being, thru connection and empathy, is the main aim of Life in me. Deeply connected with mother Nature I’m in my quest toward exploration, joy, grow, care, love and admiring the beauty of needs and feelings Life brings to us. My mission and my goals involve activities that are supporting individuals finding their authenticity, fullness of life and awareness; connecting people together, building “power with” communities based on equality of all needs and using forms of communication and full embodiment to support connecting individuals and groups into their essence, conciseness and spirituality . Working as trainer, expert, adviser, manager, father and a teacher for over 29 years I gathered broad variety of experiences and I’m very keen in sharing it with other individuals, couples, in business environments and especially enjoying reinventing teams, organisations and communities.





 shona3 (1)Trainer: Shona Cameron

CNVC Certified trainer and assessor, (UK)

Empathy and presence are the bedrock of my practice. I have spent over 20 years working with people from all backgrounds, from all over the world, to feel their feelings and to go deeper into an authentic life. Wherever I work I share simple yet profoundly effective tools to support you to move forward with a sense of clarity and purpose. We are surrounded by opportunities to work on our communication, and you can start with yourself.

In 2003 she started exploring Nonviolent Communication. Shona first training was in Switzerland with Dr, Marshall Rosenberg in February 2004. From that point and over many years she underwent extensive training, mentoring and apprenticeship with Marshall and other trainers.

Shona values the mutuality, laughter, dancing and spaces for deep listening and for the sharing of grief that come from learning with others.

She acknowledges mixed Celtic ancestry with a calling to learn more about this and is from a family with roots in service to neighbours and decency. She travels widely and is known for her clarity, warmth and humour.



Ian Portrait (2) Trainer: Ian Peatey

Ian first met Marshall in 2001 starting a personal transformation connecting with his deeper core and changing pretty much every aspect of his life. Originally from the UK, he currently lives in Romania where, together with his wife, he is building a thriving NVC community. He has been a Certified Trainer since 2008.

Introvert by nature, he is passionate about sharing NVC to build thriving and sustainable relationships in families and in organisations, drawing on his extensive experience as a parent (3 daughters) and a trainer and coach in the business world. He is a regular on IITs and loves the depth and immersion this experience brings as well as the rich multi-cultural quality of these events.
