9-Day Residential Training for Palestinians and Israelis by the the Dead Sea, January 2012
The training by the Dead Sea will be a new departure for me. On my travels to the USA, I met an NVC trainer-in-training called Roberta Wall (see her website). I enjoyed having her assist me on a training. Last year, being of Jewish origin, she went to Israel to share NVC. I was so impressed with her accounts of her trainings there, that I offered to support her this winter in running a longer training for both Israelis and Palestinians.

We are all set to start our training Thursday Dec 29 at dinner, and end Saturday January 7 after dark. We’re delighted to announce that the training will be hosted by the EcoME Centre, by the Dead Sea – in a location accessible to Israelis and Palestinians.

Hoping to see you at one of these trainings!

Love and life, Shantigarbha
