NVC Retreat in Paradise : Hawaii(Big Island)

I am so excited to announce our hosting a NVC (Non Violent Communication) Retreat by Francois Beausoleil in Hawaii (Big Island) . My needs for joy, contribution, connection, learning, growth, challenge, fun and sustainability may be fulfilled!

If you are excited about learning and practicing NVC in Hawaii!, please come!

I enjoy using my energy and time for creating peace and sustainability, and sharing NVC is my favorite way of doing it.

But I never done organizing in English in the USA. I have done a lot of organizing in Japan, and this is my first trial of organizing a NVC retreat in the US.

How challenging! Just making a flyer is hard for me. I do not know how to do that in English!

Thanks to the support of the NVC community, my first draft is shaping up. I would like to put it here now so that you can think about visiting Big Island of Hawaii, learning NVC, eating healthy organic vegetarian food, watching whales and even celebrate my birthday!

Sharing NVC from the Inside Out
Nurture Ourselves, Inspire Others and Impact Our Communities
An NVC Retreat in Kona, Hawaii with François Beausoleil
Feb 2-5, 2012 at Harmonics Life Hawaii (Yumi and Gen’s house)

From the trainer:

“I don't know if you went through a similar experience, but when I started to learn NVC, I was infused with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. In those days, I was driving 4 to 5 times a week from Montreal to Sherbrooke, a 1.5 hour drive, and I had various passengers carpooling with me to help cover the cost of gas. Almost every ride, I would end up talking, or more like preaching, about NVC.

The key here is the energy and enthusiasm I had. I still do, of course. And a lot of that energy comes from the fire inside. The fire that burns from being in the joy of giving and receiving, and of being sustainable.

This retreat will be focused on nurturing the fire inside, as well as offering ways to drastically increase our ability to be of service and have an impact on our communities.
