Nonviolent NZ Communities

Bringing Authentic and Compassionate Communication to Individuals, Communities and Organisations 

Based on the work of Marshall B. Rosenberg and the Centre of Nonviolent Communication and

Daniel Goleman and Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations

Why learning the language and the attitude of nonviolence?

It develops Emotional Competence which is the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves and for managing emotions effectively in ourselves and others.

An emotional competence is a learned capacity. Nonviolent Communication provides concrete guidelines for how to live life and engage in personal development informed by a deep commitment to nonviolence.

You are invited into a journey, starting with understanding of how recognizing and honouring our human needs will bring us a life free from scarcity and powerlessness.

Many of us have a vision of a country where everyone's needs matter and people of New Zealand are cared for.

The stakes are simply too high to wait for the perfect enough way of teaching people how to care, or waiting for a wise enough leader, or the perfect training programme.

Therefore, we chose to put forth all we know, all that we have learned and all that we imagined that supports the creation of a nonviolent culture in New Zealand.

An introduction to Nonviolent Communication Seminar is available for those who would like to learn what's involved in the training programmes. They will learn about the possible outcomes and challenges that participants might have.

The training Programmes are lusted on our website. Please browse through to learn more.
