The New York Center for Nonviolent Communication (NYCNVC)

The New York Center for Nonviolent Communication (NYCNVC) is a spontaneous, cooperative network of trainers, facilitators, practitioners, proponents, and learners who share a passion for creating a more compassionate world.  Our programs are designed to help us think, speak and hearothers with a focus on our universal human needs, which in turn, empowers us to relate to ourselves and one another with more compassion and ultimately creates more peace in our lives and in our world.
We serve people in 120 countries in 15 languages across pervading geographic, cultural, economic and language bounds - a key to creating a worldwide community contributing to a more compassionate and sustainable world to leave to our children’s children (e.g.NYCNVC Compassion Course Online).


NYCNVC was founded in 2003 by Thom Bond and Nellie Bright, with the support of Marshall Rosenberg, Larry Wydro and a small group of volunteers. It was the combination of Marshall agreeing to come offer trainings in New York and the community's ability to spontaneously organize ourselves that gave birth to NYCNVC as a viable organization. 

Today, we are over 150 trainers, facilitators, and staff serving a community of just over 40,000 registered members and an active training participant population of just over 6,000 in over 120 countries.

Languages served:
Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.
