NVC practitioners' meeting in Bangalore, Deceember 17

And an invitation to a free end-of-year peace meditation

Dear reader,

For a little over two years, the Bangalore NVC practice group met in Cubbon Park, a large and peaceful green space in the center of the city.

Since the COVID pandemic, we’ve been meeting online.

And to mark the end of this year, I’ll be hosting an in-person meeting of NVC practitioners in Bangalore at Cubbon Park.

✉️ You’re invited to the community gathering on December 17!

We’ll connect and get to know each other and share a meal. My hope is that everyone who attends this gathering leaves with more of a sense of connection with other NVC practitioners, and inspiration to continue the practice—and maybe even an empathy buddy!

Fill in this form to join this gathering, or reply to this email if you have questions. I hope to see you there!

🕊️ Free Online event: New Year’s Peace Meditation, Dec 31

For the last nine years the NVC Academy has hosted a free meditation session on December 31 to welcome the New Year with peace.

I’m delighted to be one of the co-sponsors of the peace meditation this year.

At this annual gathering, you can expect a tender meditation themed on peace, hope and healing.

It’s taking place online via Zoom on December 31, 2023 at 8.30Pm IST/7AM Pacific (California) Time.

Come together with the Nonviolent Communication community to:

  • Take a moment to breathe and just be

  • Consider what peace feels like for you

  • Connect with other Nonviolent Communication enthusiasts from around the world

  • Send out the unifying light of peace across the world

It will be held in English while simultaneously being interpreted into Spanish and Mandarin. And will last around 20 minutes with an afterparty in language specific breakout rooms for those that wish to stay longer.

The New Year’s Peace Meditation: 8.30PM IST on Sunday, December 31
