Hello. Thank you for visiting my CNVC page.

I am originally Austrian, but I have been living and working in Meso America for more than 15 years, especially in Mexico, where my wife is from and our two children were born. I came to this region to support social processes to improve living conditions in post-conflict areas. I have also been a member of the Platform for Peacebuilding in Mexico since its foundation in 2019.
Since 2018 I have been leading introductory and in-depth workshops on NVC according to Marshall Rosenberg, in Austria and Mexico, both in person and virtually. Most recently, I have been invited to facilitate workshops on "Nonviolent Communication and Buddhist Meditation".
I currently live with my wife on the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Trainer's primary language

Soy originario de Austria, pero vivo y trabajo en Mesoamérica desde hace más de 15 años, especialmente en México, de donde es mi esposa y donde nacieron nuestros dos hijos. Llegué a esta región para acompañar procesos sociales para la mejora de las condiciones de vida en zonas de post-conflicto. También soy miembro de la Plataforma para la Construcción de la Paz en México desde su fundación en 2019.
Desde 2018, dirijo talleres introductorios y de profundización sobre la CNV según Marshall Rosenberg, tanto presenciales como virtuales, en Austria y México. Más recientemente, fui invitado para facilitar talleres sobre Comunicación Noviolenta y Meditación Budista.
Actualmente vivo con mi esposa en la costa de Oaxaca, México.

“"For me, NVC is one of the most powerful ways I have found to put into practice interdependence and non-violence. This principles are guiding me from the smallest personal circle to major political crises. That's why I offer NVC for personal and/or family problems as well as for actors in social conflicts."”
