Workshops & mediation

If you would like to keep informed of upcoming practice group sessions or workshops, please join our mailing list. From time to time we host a certified NVC trainer in South Africa, depending on funds we manage to raise.

While there are currently no certified trainers in South Africa, a number of us are in the process of getting certification, having many years of practice and having attended multiple intensive training courses. We are keen to share our knowledge through compassionate communication workshops and practice groups, provide one-on-one empathy sessions,  mediation, and guidance for celebration & mourning rituals. Let us know how we might support your needs!
