  • What People are Saying
  • "NVC has been a great gift to me. It has changed my life radically, I'm still amazed. Relationships that were stuck in old patterns have become fluid, caring and loving. Perhaps, at sixty-six, to find a new love with my husband, a warmth and closeness with my children, it all seems like a miracle." -- Anne N.
  • "Thom once explained to us that 'to make big changes in our lives we need big clarity'. Nonviolent Communication gets me clear on what it is that I want, and why. What it is that I believe, and why. With such clarity I now act with more assurance, and have more definition, purpose, and love in my life." -- Amy W.
  • "An amazingly clear, informative, succinct, on-time, and interesting presentation."-- Workshop Participant
  • " changing, revolutionary, hilarious... Please accept our hugest THANK YOU for the alchemy you've catalyzed in our staff." --Vivian Lehrer Stadlin, Co-Founder of Eden Village Camp, Putnam Valley, NY
  • "Thom normalizes NVC. He shows it's possible to do in everyday life." -- Mike M.
  • "The immersion of Thom Bond's NVC Discovery Weekend has helped me make a HUGE shift in the way I'm communicating, listening/responding to others, and shifting the ways I think about my own feelings. I've had some big breakthroughs with my partner using some of the language I've learned; and have been able to see some intense feelings around my family as signals of needs I can address in my own life. And this is just the beginning..."-- Deb C.
  • "Thom's style as teacher is one that is filled with personal stories and examples that are meaningful and thoughtful. He does not place himself above anyone else."-- Elizabeth C.
  • "Working with Thom has changed my life. Really." -- Nellie B.
