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 2020 we will be running courses in Bristol, in three cycles. Each cycle has an Taster Session and two six-week courses, a Level One and a Level Two. For the duration of the Coronavirus emergency, we are offering all taster sessions and courses online. The Year Training Course is held in Glastonbury.
Online NVC Taster Sessions
Our introductory, Taster Evenings are open to anyone who would like to know more about NVC before committing to a Level One course. The next, low-cost evening will be on 4 May 2020, and 5 October 2020, on Zoom. Times: 7.00 – 8.30pm.
Online NVC Level One, Foundation Courses
Each six-week, Level One course will give you a foundation in NVC practice. A course will start on 11 May–15 June 2020, and 12 October–16 November 2020, for six Mondays. It’s not necessary to have been to one of our Taster Sessions first. The courses will all be held online on Zoom. Times for each evening: 7–9.15pm, UK time.
Online 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 (Deepening) course. Each of these courses will develop a particular aspect of NVC. On 11 May–15 June 2020 our theme will be Anger, and from 5 October–16 November 2020 we will explore how to respond to Conflict. The courses will all be held online on Zoom. Times for each evening: 7–9.15pm, UK time.

NVC Year Training: Building Community
There are five modules in our Year Training, between October 2020 and July 2021. Each module is a three-day, residential course at Paddington Farm, on the slopes of Glastonbury Tor. The fifteen days total of the training count towards CNVC certification. All modules are led by Shantigarbha and Gesine Schrader.
