FEBRUARY 13, 2018: Today begins the migration of content to our new site.

As of today, anything you enter into your blog or other forms here will not be available in the new site, until it can be manually re-entered. Please hold back from adding any information for the next few days, and check back for further directions.

This site will continue to be active until the public launch of the new site. Staff will be testing and refining the content and functions of the new site between now and then. We appreciate your patience and support during this time. Do send your questions and concerns directly to me in the meantime.

Portland ME Needs-Based Consciousness and Empathy Community

We are a practice-based group opened to people of all levels of experience and knowledge of NVC. We engage in the application of basic NVC principles through hands-on practices, such as "feels and needs poker" and presence and empathic listening to develop our ability to hear the needs present and alive within us and in all human action. We wish to reach out to our local Portland Maine community to build a strong network of support for empathic connection to self and other and cultivation of the needs-based consciousness with a shared-power and collaborative group structure, while providing the leadership to conduct regular weekly sessions. We meet weekly for two hours per session. We hope you find us and join!
Meeting Times: 
Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30 pm.
