We welcome everyone who wants to explore the principles of NVC and supports the purpose of the camp, which is to create a space for learning NVC within a community setting. The camp is supported by NVC certified trainers Shantigarbha and Gesine Schrader (About Us), and Rik Midgley

Given that we learn in different ways and respond to different teaching styles, what strategies best suit your learning?

  • absorbing the environment
  • informal conversation
  • specific workshops

This camp welcomes NVC beginners (there will be a introductory sessions), and more NVC advanced folk. On the booking form we will ask you to commit to coming to learn NVC within a community setting.
