Course In Miracles Center
Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

Marshall Rosenberg--- on forgiveness... "When we come from NVC consciousness, we recognize that there is nothing to forgive."

For the past twelve years, the Course In Miracles Center has been one of several meeting locations for teaching Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Founded by Dr Marshall Rosenberg, Nonviolent Communication or Compassionate Communication (NVC) emphasizes compassion as the motivation for action, rather than fear, guilt, shame, blame, coercion, threat or justification for punishment. This language of compassion is being shared around the world and clearly demonstrates the authentic power of a shift in perception. NVC has helped contribute to an evolving consciousness from reliance on violence and separation to a new paradigm of interconnectedness.

As a longtime practitioner of A Course In Miracles, I was thrilled to come upon the process of NVC. I immediately recognized a very practical and usable tool to assist in living the principles of forgiveness set forth in the Course. With NVC, I have consistently experienced that the sometimes difficult day-to-day interactions with family, friends and co-workers become a basis for understanding and connection rather than frustration and separation. ~Kathy Marchant

Currently at the Course In Miracles Center, several small practice groups meet weekly to support learning and growth to help apply and integrate NVC consciousness into our daily lives.
