What we offer

Communicating NeedsFounded in 2006, ZENVC supports people to be completely, authentically human, both individually and in the company of others. In the process, we create thriving, dynamic organizations; compassionate communities; strong, loving relationships; and lives of great meaning. ZENVC represents wisdom and experience derived from both Nonviolent Communication (NVC), as developed by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D., and Zen Buddhism.

ZENVC events offer a combination of training, practice, and inspiration. We provide beautiful, creative, and safe environments for personal and interpersonal discovery; direct and encouraging guidance; real-life stories, photos, and video from our work around the world; and resource materials for ongoing practice and learning.

Our trainers speak authentically and from personal experience. We have offered consultations, workshops, retreats, and conflict resolution on five continents and worked with participants of all ages: children, teens, and adults. From San Quentin State Prison to the Alaskan wilderness, from inner city high schools to NGO’s in Afghanistan, we’ve been there and can testify to what works and what doesn’t.

If you’d like to discuss how we might bring ZENVC to your organization or community, we invite you to contact us. Or, see our Upcoming Events page for our current offerings.

We also offer one-on-one consultations for personal growth and healing emotional pain, and reconciliation circles for transforming divided relationships towards peace. Contact us if you’d like to discuss this possibility. Or, read what our clients have to say about working with us.
