I just watched the video that Emancipated Human posted on facebook of a talk with you. I really connect with a lot of things you were talking about. I am a mother of a 3 year old boy and I practice attachment parenting and plan on unschooling. I am currently reading and trying to put into practice concepts in two parenting books, “The Concious Parent” and “Unconditional Parenting”. I would really like to learn more about Nonviolent Communication. What book or books do you recommend?
Thank you so much for all that you shared and your passion for peace and non coercive relationships.
Laura, I would have loved to respond sooner, however I’ve been traveling. I’m so happy that you’ve reached out to me. (: I really enjoyed Kohn’s Unconditional Parenting, I think he presents really meaningful arguments as for the “whys”, however many people after reading his work are curious about the “hows”. For me, that’s where practicing NVC comes into play. The ideal place to begin is through Marshall Rosenberg’s book Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life. I also highly recommend Daniel Siegel’s book Parenting From The Inside Out. If after reading those titles, you’re interested in one on one personal coaching, I’d be happy to try a complimentary exploratory session with you. Stay in touch! <3 Katie
I read the Nonviolent Communication book several months ago and have been looking for a community where I can practice and learn more. I just today found this site and would very much like to hear more about up coming events. Please add me to your mailing list and feel free to contact me via email. Thanks!! Amy
Hello, Amy! I have some upcoming events and ways of connecting with the Detroit area’s NVC community that I’d love to share with you, but I don’t have your e-mail address. If you’d like, you can contact me at KatieTesta@mdnvc.org, or send us a message and check out our events on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/MDNVC. Hope to connect with you soon! (:
I’d love to attend one of your upcoming events. I wonder if I could receive announcements about upcoming MDNVC events a month or more ahead of time so the Kzoo NVC Alive practice group in Kalamazoo MI could possibly put them on their calendars. Maybe next time!
