Nonviolent Communication: A Language for Shifting A Planet into Peace
Originally posted on Inside Awareness.com:
Wednesday kicked off April’s awareness campaign for sharing Nonviolent Communication in Victoria, B.C. Our guest presenter for the evening was Sister and Chaplain Judi Morin.
Judi began learning and sharing NVC in 1999 with a group at Albert head Prison. She expressed how she and a friend had signed up for one of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s workshops offered in Victoria and arriving at it she decided she already knew it and left! She did however purchase his book, Nonviolent Communication. Reading it she realized that she really didn’t know it after all. She came up with a strategy and approached a group of men at our local prison to inquire if they would like to learn it with her. Fourteen men signed up. Today there is an ongoing group at the prison! Hearing this our group expressed their congratulations back to Judi!
The Victoria Church of Truth had experienced interest in their offerings of Nonviolent Communication and invited our NVC community to share a series during their April Oneness Wednesday’s. We did have a large turn out of interested community members. Sister Judi Morin began this Wednesday night series introducing Nonviolent Communication with a focus on relationships.
