*The Remembering Sessions help participants be aware of the purpose underlying NVC. Participants who wish to share may express this remembering with a short exercise, a ceremony, poem, musical selection, a reading, etc. If you would enjoy doing so, please bring materials to contribute to the Remembering Sessions.


The workshop language will be English. If you wish for translation, or would be happy to translate a couple of sessions, please contact us. We plan to arrange translation for the big group sessions, and one small group session in each timeslot. This means, for example, if there will be four parallel options for afternoon sessions, translation will be organized at least for one of them.

Is this 9-day workshop an IIT?

Although we have a core curriculum which contains all topics of an IIT and the trainers are (mostly) CNVC certified trainers, we decided to offer this 9-day workshop NOT as an IIT.

One motivation is for cooperation with other IIT’s in Europe at a similar time, which got postponed last year due to Covid-19 restrictions. Another, which is very dear to us, being a local event we can keep the costs within the reach of Eastern Europe.

This means for you, when you are on your path to become a CNVC certified trainer, that this workshop will be counted as training days, but might not be accepted to meet the requirement of having joined an IIT, please check with your assessor, how do they relate to it.
