Teaching life skills for reaching across differences, resolving conflicts,
and building more long-lasting, meaningful connections.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.”
One Big Circle offers immersive learning experiences in Nonviolent Communication, teaching life skills for reaching across differences, resolving conflicts, and building more long-lasting, meaningful connections. Our programs are facilitated by trainers certified by the Center for Nonviolent Communication
NVC assumes that all of humanity shares the same basic human needs, and that all actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs. NVC offers simple but powerful tools to help us more easily speak and act with compassion as we navigate an increasingly polarized world.
“Nonviolent Communication is based on the principle of ahimsa – the
natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart.”
