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)

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,

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.
