It is my hope that you will support her in her efforts towards implementing social change." Warmly, Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D, Founder and Director of Educational Services, The Center for Nonviolent Communication (www.cnvc.org) July, 2005

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

Ms. Alight has been a blessing to me and my wife. I pass on all that I learn to my wife. This class has taught me how to recognize how feelings and needs are the clue to our Anger. She has a unique way of teaching which makes the concepts easier to learn. -T.M. incarcerated at San Quentin

Role-plays with Mair release me from the prison of my limited perspective; liberate me from the shackles and confines of my scripted ways of being, and release me into the vast world of possible responses to any given situation.  
with much gratitude,

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


Carol Chase, CNVC Certified Trainer Having worked and collaborated with Mair for 14 years, I feel blessed and grateful for the mutual learning and consistency I experience in our interactions.  I have grown to trust Mair's ability to support the group sessions by tracking where we are, guiding the conversation with suggestions and points of learning and consistently checking with the group for inclusion and informed decisions.  I believe Mair creates a level of safety and trust so that participants are eager to step up and practice applying the tools of empathy and to welcome the feedback, seeing it as an invitation to add another tool to their tool box.

Kate Raffin: I So LOVED the session you led today - LOVED it from the very beginning to the end. Rich, deep , simple and … inspiring.
I love the way you heard the question to talk "about " what we were doing as a "request".
LOVED it - have been caught in my mind and heart since Wednesday eve's practice group that I led about what happens in the room and the servant I become to all OTHER needs and YOUR example was pure "hearin' it " - the request !!!! As …. A request !! - Kate Raffin

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

"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."
