Review for Bay Area Nonviolent Communication, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Even though I live in Massachusetts, I have benefited tremendously from BayNVC. Their reach is worldwide. I learned of them when I took a teleclass with someone who had attended BayNVC's Leadership Training Program. The class was taught for and by people with chronic illness and disabilities. Like me, most of the other students are homebound and very isolated. I can't describe how much it changed my life. For one thing, I became very close friends with people around the US who are also disabled by chronic illness. We provide each other much-needed support and community. For another, I learned NVC -- a way to communicate and to listen deeply and compassionately to myself and others. I used to be a very angry person, hurting all the time and full of self-hatred, and now I am a much happier, relaxed, compassionate person to myself and others. I have continued to learn from and benefit from BayNVC by taking their telesummits and other classes by phone. They provide the option of sliding-scale or free registration for those who cannot afford to pay. Being unable to go out into the world, it has meant so much to me to be able to connect with people and build a community by phone. I'm so grateful to BayNVC for transforming my life.
