Certified Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Trainer
I was born and lived in Israel until the age of 25 (1999) after which I moved to Europe to proceed with my dance and acting career.
As an NVC trainer, I am now based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
I met NVC 15 years ago, and since, I am extremely passionate about applying it into my life. In 2008, I have decided to quit my entire artistic activities in order to dedicate my full time and energy into sharing and living NVC.
I am excited about NVC as a super simple and powerful tool that supports me again and again to create and maintain true cooperation, connection and love between people and me, and between me and myself.
NVC is to take my meditation cushion into real life and live my deep values in million of everyday life situations. NVC is a very concrete HOW TO that helps me to manifest compassion, self love, and love for others.
NVC is a unique practice of listening to oneself and others.
NVC is very effectively used in mediation and conflict resolution (on personal level as well as on organisational and international levels).
NVC shows a way for social change and a revolution in our methods of education (and self education).
My approach is profound and personal- my aim is to empower individuals (including myself) to act out of choice and inner clarity.
I focus on 'Revealing layers of authenticity' and on 'The power of Compassion and Empathy'.
In group dynamics I foster clarity and liveliness, while concentrating on the 'embodying and practicing' aspect of the learning (much more than on understanding the theory).
I support the mission of the International Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) by leading workshops throughout Europe (in The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Italy, Poland, Israel and more) in English, French and in Hebrew.
I am deeply and continuously nourished by my long trainings in bodywork methods- Tai-Chi, Yoga, Butoh, Dance and Alexander Technique.
And by "The Work" of Byron Katie- liberating the Self from limiting beliefs.
I am one of the 4 initiators of LIFE! (stands for: Learning In Free Environment) which is a 'Democratic NVC school for children age 0-21 in Amsterdam (www.come2life.nl)
My Vision and Mission
Applying the Nonviolent Communication principles, I envision a new paradigm of existence, for myself and for others. My mission is to facilitate the creation of life-serving systems, social structures, relationships, and the relationship with ourselves. I do this by living and teaching the process of "Nonviolent Communication" which strengthens the ability of people to compassionately connect with themselves and others, share resources, and resolve conflicts.
Nonviolent Communication is a simple 'technique' giving a concrete tool, a 'how to' create a society where everyone's needs are met peacefully, joyfully and respectfully.
My mission is to progressively contribute and take part in an educational and social transformation, walk toward a secret field: "Out beyond wrongness and rightness, there is a field. I'll meet you there". Rumi
