Co-Creating Connection

Peace Through Action USA

Location: Online

Event Description – Co-Creating Connection: Using Nonviolent Communication for Heartful Connection has two aims; 1) to present principles of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in a condensed format and 2) to offer a simple skill to answer the question, “What can I do, right now, to make genuine, heartful connection?” This skill offers a reframe that enables compassion to arise naturally, even in challenging situations. Breakout room experience and group dialogues are planned to support skills integration. The training is designed to be useful whether you identify as a new or seasoned NVC practitioner.

 Presenter Biography – River Dunavin is a certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) since 2016. He is president for the Network for Nonviolent Communication, a mediator, circle-keeper, and trainer with CORA Good Shepherd Mediation. River has provided NVC trainings in New Mexico, Texas, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware. Until the COVID-19 shutdown, River led NVC training for men and women incarcerated in federal, state, and county correctional facilities for Heart to Heart. River coaches individuals, couples and families in integrating NVC principles.

River’s trainings aim to provide experiences that inspire confidence that one can live a life filled with heartfulness and gratitude, and that we all can thrive and do no harm.
