"I desire to spend the rest of my life doing only what is fun: serving all life."

My name is Achun, and I currently live in Yantai, Shandong Province, China. I love food, travel, and art. I also love nature, and I love to play and explore new things.

In 2013, I participated in the NVC reading club. In 2014, I left my job due to illness. When I was lost and helpless from the original life track, I attended the first NVC workshop. In the workshop, I experienced for the first time the magic and beauty of connecting to the divine energy of need. I feel connected to my life. I began to have a strong interest in NVC workshops. During my five-day workshop with CNVC trainer Younjeong Lee in June 2015, I was deeply nourished and felt the warmth, depth, and sense of power that NVC brought me. Since then, NVC has been a very important part of my life.

From 2015 to 2019, my friends and I hosted and participated in the workshops of CNVC certified trainers for many times. With the support of my assessment teachers and community partners, I gradually changed some of my judgments about myself, slowly reconciled with my past, became closer to my loved ones, and slowly lived with more compassion and kindness for myself and others.

I started sharing NVC in 2016, I founded the Giraffe House in my city, and I built an online community. I share NVC through workshops, webinars, book clubs, and salons. I made giraffe hand puppets, NVC learning cards to share with students, and shared and promoted NVC in various ways. and enjoy it. I gained a sense of value and achievement.

In 2018, after making my own treasured choices, I began my certification journey, I registered my candidacy with Jim Manske in 2018 and I am forever grateful to him for the guidance and example he gave me. Sylvia will be my new appraiser in 2021. I was honored to have the support and love of two appraisers. I see more and more people because of my sharing, their lives more vivid and blooming, I experience a new meaning and value of life!

To spread NVC in China is Marshall's long-term dream, and it is also my dream and the direction of my life. Next, I look forward to bringing NVC to more areas of China with fun, exploration and humor, so that more female friends can enjoy the beauty brought by NVC, I will continue to explore [NVC of food and body], and I will do more conflict mediation work.

“I look forward to bringing NVC to more women in a fun, light-hearted and humorous way. I will continue to explore "Food and the body's NVC". I'll do more conflict mediation.”
