What Participants Say:

"There have been very few experiences in my life as profound and inspirational as my exposure to Nonviolent Communication. Simply put, through the practice of NVC and the consciousness I am able to cultivate, I show up in the world and move through the world as the person I want to be." Bob Mark, Human Services Director.

"I have always appreciated the way you’ve taught, valuing deep presence and authentic connection in the moment and offering practical ways of tapping into that." Zane Cook, Nine Month Program Participant 

"Just a quick note to say that I really enjoyed to participate today. ❤

You are such an amazing coach ! and I am so looking forward to buying your book!" Hanne Halseth, Nutritionist

"The session today was such a wonderful reminder that emotions are gifts to be welcomed and indicators of something beautiful. Thank you for the beautiful moments of compassion today, Kathy!" Emily Schlesinger

“Kathy has a gift of presence that brings us home to "the heart of the matter" within ourselves and with our community. It is important to have passion and love for what we want to offer, but it is really an art to make that passion into a deliverable and palatable message to the world.” Maria Bailey

“I am grateful for the safe and supportive space Kathy made for me to explore my feelings and needs and arrive at new understanding and appreciation for myself. Through the acceptance of Kathy and our group I regained access to hope, trust, and my innocence. I can finally feel a connection between my head and my heart and taste real compassion for myself and others. It is a place of rich, deep peace and possibility. I can't say "Thank you!" enough.  Kathy's skill in teaching, living and modeling NVC is inspiring. She makes it look so easy, because she stays grounded in Presence, able to trust the unfolding of Wisdom through the process of NVC.  I could not have asked for any finer teacher to show the way to Compassionate Communication and connection with self and others!”

"Kathy has helped me to see things that I could not see on my own, both regarding my internal relationship with myself and my relationship with others.  Kathy is an open-hearted teacher and instructor, and she practices what she teaches, empathy, self-compassion, the beauty of our needs, all of it.  I love her presence.  She is a gift to all of us." Chris Vannote
