Father Chris Rajendram holds a Doctor of Philosophy in social communication. Born in 1943 in the city of Battikaloa on the east side of Sri Lanka, Father Chris was the fourth child in the family of eight children.
In 1960, he joined the Jesuits, and in 1973 became a priest. He studied and then taught in universities of his country and the USA in the sphere of communication and conflict studies.
In 1996, when teaching in the United States, Chris met Marshall Rosenberg, founder of the Nonviolent Communication movement. “This acquaintance gave me a new vision of everything I was doing, in particular of my spiritual path,” Chris says, telling about his way to NVC. “I have discovered how to perceive my life and the lives of others in a different way, and since then I have been enjoying my study and the opportunity to share with others.”
