You don't have to take it from us, here you can hear it from their own voices:
Voices From Our Houston Community
“Nonviolent Communication is a much needed strategy in today’s world. Anyone interested in learning how to create a culture
of peace in our families, communities, and in the world should avail themselves of this powerful body of knowledge.”
Dr. Jill Carroll, Houston-based scholar, writer and speaker who specializes in world religions and applied life philosophy.
“Learning about Compassionate Communication has both reinforced and enhanced my own style and techniques with clients and other relationships while providing a wonderful resource for clients who struggle with relationships due to communication issues.”
Deniece Christ-Rice, LCSWClinical Supervisor Family Services of Greater Houston
“NVC opened my eyes and my heart. I have learned to communicate with others in a way that is kind and respectful. Most importantly, NVC has given me specific tools to navigate these relationships so all of our needs get met".
Merilee Menshaw, Houston artist
"The key realization for me was that Compassionate Communication is not a means of changing another person's viewpoint, but rather a way to work with my own awareness -- awareness of my own needs and my personal triggers. Now I have the tools to deal with any encounter, no matter how challenging. Thank you again for creating such an empowering experience."
Ara Lucia Ashburne
"I’ve been in and around the NVC community for a few years now. With practice, NVC’s elegant tool kit has emerged as a natural part of how I put the world together. NVC helps nurture my deepest desires, values, interests and motivations. I use the tools to heal my reactions and judgments. I am able to connect more authentically with others and experience true compassion. I’ve deepened my conflict resolution skills. And I’ve gained a robust understanding of conflicting political worldviews, religions and world affairs."
Steve, NVC Practice Group facilitator
"I took a workshop on NVC and thought how nice and helpful in my understanding and compassionate hearing of others. What I learned was that it also applied to me and my feelings and needs as well. Men often are less introspective, and so this was at the same time helpful and compassionate for myself as well. It also helped give me pause in hearing others to be a bit more reflective and a bit less judgmental."
John M. Howard, Jr.
"I have been involved with one of the local group practices for several years now. One of the things that I have noticed is that everyone who comes regularly even for a little will learn something about themselves and how to communicate their inner self to others. There is a process to communication which is not taught in schools, but can be learned in practicing NVC. Now I use this process in all of my interactions, work life, home life and general conversations to the benefit of myself and others."
What Authors Say
