I have felt a deeper sense of compassion for myself along with finding gentle acceptance in the presence of conflict and anger. I often find myself coming back to the methods you’ve shared and have felt inspired to share your work with my family and friends.

On this week’s podcast, there were several questions concerning how we can introduce our loved ones to Nonviolent Communication.
