Educator Ann McKnight will be offering an introductory “tour” of NVC training—nonviolent communication.

I believe this hour will be valuable for anyone interested in learning a practical way to transform anger and conflict into trust and cooperation; promote Christ-like compassion through thoughts, words and actions; and to connect with others regardless of past experiences.

Ann has studied NVC for over eight years with leaders from around the world. Ann, herself, has led workshops for people of all ages, including graduate students at Western Theological Seminary, ministers at the Luther seminary annual retreat in Minnesota, kindergartners, and prisoners at the Kent County Jail.
