NVC Summer Boot Camp is an opportunity to immerse yourself in NVC skills and consciousness and have fun along the way. These intensive 5 weeks are for those committed to learning and practicing NVC. Each class a new topic will be introduced that fits into the overall NVC context. Together we will practice the skills as a group and in break out rooms. The learning will be reinforced by reading Dr. Rosenberg's book: Nonviolent Communication: Language of Life. We will gather twice a week to discuss the book chapters, introduce new skills, and integrate what is being learned. Between classes, you will read between 1-3 chapters in the book, complete a worksheet, and meet with one other person to practice the skills.

Required textbook: Nonviolent Communication: Language of Life. Puddledancerpress.com
