TESTIMONIAL from Miki Kashtan:
"I have known Mair since 2002, when she attended the BayNVC Leadership Program. I appreciate, in particular, her deep passion for meaning, her dedication to authenticity and full human connection, and her humor and courage in responding to challenges. I trust her understanding of NVC and her continued immersion in learning and clarifying concepts and processes. I am impressed by what I see as her ability to see and reach human beings across a wide range of demographics and experiences and offer meaningful healing and learning to others." - Miki Kashtan, Lead Trainer, Strategic Vision, Bay Area Nonviolent Communication (BayNVC) www.BayNVC.org

TESTIMONIAL FROM Ike Lasater: "I’ve known Mair for a decade as a friend, colleague and as a participant in some of my NVC Mediation workshops. I very much enjoy how she shows up in the world with humor, care and clarity. I like the way Mair relates to herself, and to me and others. I without reservation recommend that you work with her at every opportunity." – Ike Lasater, www.NVCMediation.com


What some people have told us about their experiences with us...

Rd: "I'm so grateful for NVC. It has given me courage and allowed me to create a space within myself so I know where I am; I'm in touch with my feelings and needs. That is so liberating for me; before I couldn't modulate. I'm  still learning to express myself compassionately. I'm moving forward feeling truly pleasurable because now I feel I can take anything in compassionately."

"It was helpful for me to access and name sadness. Usually, I get stuck in anger. Thank you. This was really helpful. I really liked the role play."

"My take away today is the role playing framework. Take a pause, say less, go with the flow."

"Role playing was very meaningful"

"Thank you! Today was very helpful. I really liked the Q & A and role play. Really valuable.


  • Bring to class your own most disturbing “jackal” messages
  • Learn to use some tips to guess what possible needs might be alive in you
  • Profoundly change your ability to listen with curiosity to your jackals’ messages (instead of attack, blame and criticism)
  • Experience getting to the heart of the matter, increasing your understanding of your jackals’ messages
  • We share a google doc with links to resource documents and videos, call structures, call "takeaways" and links to the recorded calls (if all agree to record calls)

Who is it for?

  >Those who want to find ways that create peace of mind and self acceptance when hearing their own "inner jackals"
>You can benefit from this regardless of how many years you have (or have not) been practicing NVC in your daily life. We'll specifically learn/practice tips/tricks to increase your ACCESS to your jackal translation tools when you most want them available, and it seems most challenging to remember them.
>Those who want to create less conflict and more harmony in hearing and translating their self judgments, criticism and blame

What to bring:

  >You are requested to bring your curiosity and openness to learn and practice.
>Find a quiet place for the call, and have available your chosen method for note-taking.This is interactive practicing, not a lecture series.....and you might learn things you want to remember!
>Just like you play exercises on the piano to learn and grow increasingly proficient, we'll practice the learnable, reliable, practical, simple tools of NVC together on the calls, and with a sharing partner between calls, if you like (optional).
