Ahimsa Village is committed to community building at all levels - physical, mental, spiritual.
Ahimsa is committed to the practice of nonviolent communication as espoused by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg. The purpose of NVC is to create human connections that empower compassionate giving and receiving. NVC involves both communication skills that foster compassionate relating and consciousness of the interdependence of our well being and using power with others to work together to meet the needs of all concerned (from the Center for Nonviolent Communication Web site - www.cnvc.org).
In this light we are striving to develop "nvc consciousness" at Ahimsa. We have a regular NVC Circle and host workshops and events focused on NVC training and practice. In June 2008, we held a 3-day basic NVC workshop titled the ABC's of Empowering Communication.
