We (Valerie and Jim) have been studying and practicing NVC since 2008 and have immense gratitude for how it has supported our marriage, strengthened our connections with friends and increased our self-compassion. We are candidates for Certification with the Center for Nonviolent Communication. To read more about us, click here. To learn more about NVC in Aotearoa/NZ, visit www.nvc.org.nz
29 February & 1 March 2020 – Communicate with Compassion Weekend in Christchurch (9.30 to 5 both days) REGISTRATION LINK
Financial Contribution Requested $180 to $280.
To book your place we ask a non-refundable prepayment $100. The rest of the payment, you are asked to pay within a week after the very end of the course (we like people to pay when they know what they pay for, so that payment is more connected to gratitude and less to being a duty). If you prefer paying it earlier, this is welcome as well.
‘The regret period’: If you change your mind within 7 days after sending the prepayment and before the course has actually begun, you will receive your pre-payment back. The prepayment becomes non-refundable 7 days after you register
If you wish to hold a place for any of the upcoming dates or have questions you may phone us on 351-7432 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
