Nonviolent Communication (NVC) has enriched my life in important ways. Employing NVC processes to address life's challenges increases my sense of peace and freedom. Identifying and connecting with the needs underlying the actions of others has brought greater harmony to my personal and professional relationships. In addition, NVC has greatly benefited my clients and enriched their lives. For these reasons sharing Nonviolent Communication fills my life with passion and meaning. ~ Myra
