Nonviolent Communication (#nvc) is a communication model and way of life developed by Marshall Rosenberg. It teaches a compassionate perspective that transforms the relation with yourself and others. It is applied in prisons, schools, business and personal life to increase emotional intelligence, improve relationship, create connection and resolve conflict.
I think it is important that people see that spirituality is at the base of Nonviolent Communication, and that they learn the mechanics of the process with that in mind. It’s really a spiritual practice that I am trying to show as a way of life.
