We are a collective of facilitators and NVC practitioners using a range of tools, skills and experiences with groups and individuals to support re-connection.
Our vision is a society in which people co-create effective groups and systems where everyone matters, in a culture of trust. We are consciously working towards this by supporting people and groups to find their own life-serving relationships and systems.
In practice, this looks like –
- Working with organisations, teams, businesses and community groups to support them with their challenges around communication and conflict.
- Hosting Nonviolent Communication practice groups for individuals who would like to find more peace and power both in themselves and their relationships.
- Facilitating camps, events and workshops which allow participants to engage in self-connection and learning on a deeper level.
- Acting as mediators when relationships are strained.
We know from experience how transformative it is to connect, both in our personal and working lives. We see it as truly contributing towards social change; moving towards a society in which people thrive.
We draw heavily on the theory and practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), which was first developed by Marshall Rosenberg and has been a huge inspiration for us in our personal lives and in our decision to start offering this work. We are on the path to becoming certified trainers as recognised by the Center for Nonviolent Communication. We can recommend or collaborate with officially certified trainers where preferred, or when we feel they would be best suited to the work.

We are hugely inspired by Miki Kashtan and the Nonviolent Global Liberation community’s working prototype of a different way to live, work and organise. For a taste of what that’s about, please visit thefearlessheart.org and the NGL YouTube channel.
