What other ways can I attend training near where I live?

Sometimes trainings may be organised at times when you cannot attend or in places difficult for you to access. You might be interested in organising a venue and inviting participants to attend a training you invite me to lead. This can create an immediate community of participants who may be willing to set up a practice group following the training. Contact me to find out more.

I have attended all the Deepening Foundation trainings and want to really immerse myself in NVC. What else might I do?
A nine day International Intensive Training [IIT] organised by the Centre for Nonviolent Communication offers participants a residential workshop to develop fluency in NVC. Participants have the time and space to really explore NVC with groups of people from different cultures all working together towards a world where everyone’s needs matter.
