“This has been the most influential training I have ever had the honor of being a part of. The training helped me process the huge emotional rolodex that I am capable of experiencing. I was never afraid or shy of emotion. What I lacked, and take away most from this, is how people need to be connected…myself included.”

“Bren, you are a well of knowledge and passion for this work as a change agent for the world we live in.  You give me hope! You are patient, organized, and very clear. I appreciate the real life examples and your explanation of the processing of information following NVC.”

Ari

“I got more than my money’s worth from my four day training sponsored by HNVC. 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. Gaining skill with that awareness means I can be fully present with another person in communication; I can create an atmosphere that allows for transformation. Now I have the tools to deal with any encounter, no matter how challenging. The next step for me is more practice and that is just plain fun! Thank you again for creating such an empowering experience.”

“Thank you very much for taking time and effort to come and present an important topic to our seniors group. The presentation was very effective and very helpful. Each and everyone enjoyed the presentation thoroughly and felt good that they can apply what they learned in their daily life and improve the relationships and keep the life flowing.”

“I have been constantly changed and have experienced a rejuvenating and renewing of my mind from the NVC workshop.  I have been empowered to relate to others positively and to be the change in the world that I wish to see.”

“In the Monday night practice group, I found acceptance, patience and kindness. For someone like me, with English as a second language, I found a supportive environment of learning. The meetings online really meet my needs for flexibility, community, and accountability.”

Melissa

“Houston NVC has enabled me to connect with a caring community of people that I may never have met otherwise. I see the contribution that they make to their local community, and the vision they have to bridge people from all over the world. In the offerings I have attended, like the Compassionate Communication practice group, I have received support, awareness, learning, and understanding in a fun and flexible environment. In my interactions with board members and facilitators, I feel seen, heard, and inspired. I have great hope for the future of Houston NVC.”

Dave

“NVC has been a huge boon to me. Since practicing NVC, I find that I am more capable of creating the kind of connection that makes compassionate giving possible. This has impacted all of my closest relationships and is sure to enhance my future in many ways.”

“I had the pleasure of interacting with several HNVC people in the last 12 months, starting with the 2018 IIT in Texas. That week of training brought the next level of understanding and practice around NVC into my life, including continuous regular contact in Karen’s online practice group later. My need of connecting with NVC minded people got a big boost during the IIT to the point where I had fear of the contrast of returning to my life. The weekly online practice dispelled that fear and also has delivered that regular maintenance and growth I have been craving. I love that we are studying (not just reading, but truly studying) the NVC book in the weekly meeting!”
