Éva Rambala (Hungary)

I am in love with this process, called Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Practicing it is the greatest improvement in the quality of my life. The idea that I can be honest without criticizing gives me much bigger freedom than I have ever imagined having, before I met NVC. Being able to guess the other person’s possible feelings and needs reduces the number of “idiots” around me to zero.

I am not saying that empathic guesses are my first thoughts all the time, but sooner or later I will get there.So, I experience much more freedom and safety.

Maria Arpa (England)

Maria is founder and Chief Executive of Centre for Peaceful Solutions. She has made interpersonal skills a lifetime project. Growing up in London in housing declared unfit for human habitation to immigrant parents, Maria experienced first-hand just how easy it is to become dysfunctional. Her Maltese parents were traumatised by World War Two which added to the stress of growing up in poverty. Through a sheer refusal to accept her lot in life, she removed herself from the slums and began a journey of development.

Chris Rajendram (Srí Lanka)

I met Marshall in 1996 while pursuing my studies on communication at the Ohio State University. I was searching for something that could help my war torn country and the war weary people. At the very first session with Marshall, it became very clear that I have found the teachings that I was looking for. I immediately started integrating the learnings of NVC into my life. NVC became my life. It lit up my life from every corner. I learnt to be present. I continue to learn to be present….

Ondráš Přibyla (Czech)

Ondráš is a strategic thinker with passion for complex problems. He studied theoretical physics, but gradually shifted his focus towards complexity in communication, conflicts and interaction in organizations and communities. NVC is an important tool in his toolbox that complements well other approaches that focus more on the big picture of the whole system. He has worked in many roles: facilitator, coach, mediator, researcher, trainer… but in all the roles he does the same thing, watching for emerging patterns and making sense of the situation, so that the people can make progress on their paths. 

Supporting Trainers

“Supporting trainers” are available for offering support whenever it is needed  and they are in a position of being able to offer it with joy.

Why is there such a thing as – sharing? I don’t know it, and you don’t know it either. But we both know for sure, that this is an ineradicable need of the human heart, which makes the life worth living, and bears a big secret. (Iwan Bunin)

We share life as we live our interdependence – we can be our biggest triggers and place of deepest comfort – NVC for us does not begin and end at courses we give, or we just do silently for ourselves, NVC for us is to share live consciously with all the juiciness and challenges life brings. We like to walk our talk, reflect each other, grow together.
