Practice Groups


VASHON ISLAND / 98070: NVC with Kathleen Macferran: Once a month, Kathleen Macferran comes to Vashon to host a 2-hour NVC practice group. What happens varies depending on what is "alive" in the room.

The suggested donation for this session is $20. Your contribution is very much appreciated. Kathleen will use the money to go into prisons and in addition works with populations who do not have the resources to compensate her. However don't let money hold you back—your presence is more important.
