About Great Lakes NVC

 

 

GLNVC is a collaboration between Francois Beausoleil, Irene Bowers and Lisa Gottlieb, who are deeply invested in sharing skills for authentic connection, conflict resolution, improved understanding of different points of view, and finding ways to work together using practical problem-solving tools that support individuals, families, co-workers, communities and businesses so that everyone's needs are valued, by utilizing the protocols and consciousness of Nonviolent Communication. 

 

History of NVC

 
 

Nonviolent Communication, informally called Compassionate Communication, was created by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, a clinical psychologist, who studied Humanistic Psychology along with Buddhist principles and conflict resolution. He was profoundly impacted by the 1948 race riots in Detroit, MI, where his family had recently relocated when he was a teenager. His desire for peace, equality, and respect for all led him to found the Center for Nonviolent Communication, which now has over 500 certified trainers and facilitators

in over 65 countries around the world... 

Like the multi-colored lamps, each of us is one-of-a-kind with our unique circumstances in our lives.  But on the inside, we have much in common -- we care for our family and friends, we worry about things, we celebrate things, and we do our best to navigate our lives.

 

We want to make meaningful contributions; we want to belong.  These are just a few of the fundamental human needs that we all share, which create the light within us.

"The lamps may be different, but the light is the same.” 

~ Rumi, Sufi poet
