Non-Violent Communication (NVC) Discovery Weekend
with Thom Bond

The NVC Discovery Weekends takes us from the very beginning concepts of NVC to a deeper understanding of the purpose, meaning and implications that it has in our lives and in the world. We will practice responding and communication conciously by expressing and hearing, based on what we are observing, feeling, needing and requesting. By learning these concepts, in combination with experiential exercises, demonstrations, role-play and more, participants get first-hand experience and develop skills to bring back into their lives.
Thom Bond brings 27 years of human potential experience, and training experience to his work as an Internationally Certified NVC Trainer. Many of his students become active facilitators, trainers and practitioners. Thom is a founder and the Executive Director of The New York Center for Non-Violent Communication, a member of the Communications Coordination Committee for the United Nations and a member of the CNVC Educational Services team.
