Help Send Danielle to NVC School

I'm enrolled in a year-long program to train in practicing Nonviolent Communication and using it to build and strengthen communities. The dues however are very expensive - far outside my poor recent-graduate budget.

If you can, please donate so that I can spend the next year learning about compassionate communication, and use what I learn to help myself and others and you. 

Nonviolent Communication has helped me learn to understand my emotions, talk to others when I'm mad or hurt in a way that doesn't leave them angry or confused, and actually listen when other people are trying to share their problems with -me- without feeling attacked or rejected."¨ 

Additionally, as someone with PTSD - NVC has made a HUGE difference in being able to get help from my friends and family members when I need it, and not totally freaking them out when things go badly.

My goal is to become a Compassionate Commication and Vipassana meditation teacher, teaching classes, offering one-on-one coaching, and non-profit training at-risk populations. I'm offering a taste of that teaching in the perks below - from tip sheets and a short video to introduce NVC; personal classes (1-on-1, group skype, or a half-day workshop); and guides to use NVC to make for more pleasant and effective workplaces (an eBook or seminar).

The training involves three week-long retreats, in July, December, and next June, with teleconferences in between. $2,150 goes towards  fees, and lodging will cost $1,539 (total=3689+travel). The retreats are held just north of Denver, CO.

All rewards will be sent out/times set starting in June 2015, after the program is complete!
