People trust Seed of Peace to facilitate healing and reconciliation in their communities: we work in Bristol, around the UK, and in countries like India and Nepal. We can help you understand the roots of conflict, leading to deeper relationships, greater co-operation, a more just and compassionate world. We have an ongoing programme of activities.
Are you in a situation that would benefit from inviting us in to share Nonviolent Communication (NVC)? Please get in touch!
NVC Training Courses
In 2018 we will be running courses in three cycles, and each cycle has an Intro Evening and two six-week courses, a Level One and a Level Two.
NVC Taster Evenings
Our introductory, Taster Evenings are open to anyone who would like to know more about NVC before committing to a Level One course. These low-cost evenings will be on 5 March, 23 April, and 15 October 2018, at the Horfield Quaker Meeting House, Bristol.
NVC Level One, Foundation Courses
Each six-week, Level One course will give you a foundation in NVC practice. Courses will start on 12 March, 30 April, and 22 October, for six consecutive Mondays, 7.30 – 9.45pm. (It’s not necessary to have been to one of our Intro Evenings first.) The course will be held at the Horfield Quaker Meeting House, Bristol.
NVC Level Two, Deepening Courses
If you have already completed a Level One course, you could join us on an Intermediate, six-week, Level Two course. Each of these courses will develop on a theme. On 12 March, we will be looking at empathy; 30 April, the theme will be anger; 22 October, we will explore learning how to respond to conflict. The course will be held at the Horfield Quaker Meeting House, Bristol.

NVC Year Training
There are five modules in our Year Training, between October and July. Each module is a three-day, residential course held at PETT, near Cheltenham. The fifteen days total of the training count towards CNVC certification. All modules are led by Shantigarbha and Gesine Schrader. If you are you longing to be part of a year-long NVC learning community, and struggling to afford even the bottom of the sliding scale, get in touch with us.
