What is it about?

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) can strengthen our ability to stay connected to ourselves and to make heart-to-heart connections with others (family, friends, neighbors and work colleagues). NVC is being used worldwide by thousands of parents, teachers, doctors, social workers, managers and others to improve their work and home life.

This basic training sets the context for NVC and presents the basic concepts and tools that are used to resolve conflict and improve the quality of participants’ personal and professional relationships.

After this introductory training, participants will be invited to continue and deepen their practice, if they wish, through ongoing practice groups in Colombo.
