Presentation, Introduction, and Basics

Nonviolent Communication promotes the relational ability and the emotional resilience required to transform a conflict into connection, in addition to support strong and flexible partnerships. It calls us to experiment new possibilities of efficient communication, backing a personal compassion, and being socially engaged in the intelligence of our hearts.


A practical research started more than 50 years ago by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, the Nonviolent Communication acts in three interconnected levels – intrapersonal, interpersonal, and systemic –, thus recovering the power of dialogue and empathy even when faced with challenging social systems and behaviors.


About the mediator
The mediation of the session is made by Dominic Barter, who was an apprentice and colleague of Marshall Rosenberg for 18 years. He served as the president of the managing board of the International Center of Nonviolent Communication and designed its current process of institutional change, other than being a precursor to the Restorative Circles in Brazil and internationally orienting the application of restorative practices.


Babies and Children

Some people will attend the session with babies and children, for they would not be able to access it otherwise. It is proposed that the younger are collectively taken care of, so that this responsibility does not remain exclusive to mothers, fathers, or other people in charge.


Financial Support of the Event

Everyone is invited to practice the Financial Co-Responsibility – a practice proposed by Dominic to consciously support systems, projects, and events.


During the session, the production costs of the event, as well as that of the lives and the projects of people who made it happen, will be shared with the attendees. After that, a mechanism of free contribution will be made available for those who wish to do so. The total amount received will be calculated, and the information, disclosed. Each person involved in the organization and accomplishment of the event will share the amount according to one’s current needs.


This process has been making a significant contribution to the learning of participants by demonstrating how to transformatively engage oneself in a social system, as well as by distinguishing money from gratitude and constructive criticism.


The session is thus open for everyone, without distinction in regards to the financial situation of the participants. The event and the leaning trajectory in Nonviolent Communication it is part of can only continue to be sustainable with the desire of participants to actively nourish activities of this kind.
