    Thankyou Jesse and Catherine for this wonderful story. I first began learning about the dharma in the 70’s. I’d like everything I do to resonate with those teachings. Then I moved into the practice as suggested by Prem Rawat as it seemed more real – less intellectual – a down-to-earth experience of the buddha’s message. About four years ago I encountered NVC. It aligns with what has gone before. I’d like to thank all the people I’ve met during these years: Cate, Milli, Jana, and many more from this part of Australia. It’s a journey. I’m glad to be on it.

    Dear Jesse, I am moved to tears by your story, which brings me to a deep place of gratitude regarding what I have experienced with certified trainers, too. YES! –their presence, empathy, humor, understanding, warmth, generosity, and humility! This is how I want to show up in the world. And I am grateful for their showing me a way… To me, the phrase “warm hand to warm hand” really captures the process— it is indeed a transmission. Deep bow, Diane Diller (CT-candidate with Penny Wassman, assessor)

    Thank you so much Jesse, I have so longed for this kind of discussion – more so than I had even was aware of. I really appreciate knowing more of your specifics and how you felt and experienced your specifics regarding all of this. I feel some resonance with how those specifics might affect me. Also, i was at your DC workshop when you were certified and it’s wonderful to know more of the background before it. Cool! Thanks again! J.J.

    I’ve been wondering myself why I am on the CT journey … hearing your thoughts has helped clarify how community and tradition are important to me too in relation to my involvement in the NVC community.

    I also want to say that I attended the Wales training that you and Catherine led in Easter and I really enjoyed that experience, I left feeling whole and connected.

    So thank you for that too.

    Thank you Jesse, for the time, care and skills, but most of all, the authenticity in sharing your process. It is timely that I read this, in the midst of much that goes on in me right now. I trust your wisdom would be one of many support to help me see through my struggles.

    Thank you Jesse. I loved reading it, and felt touched by your appreciation of John Kinyon (whom I’ve come to appreciate in exactly the same way) and your gratitude for the community of NVC-trainers. I’ve been considering entering the certification process for five years, and your post tipped me over to “Yes, let’s go for it!”
