BEYOND BASICS - On the 3rd Wednesday of each month you can expect an excellent mini-workshop for those who have attended our Basics Meetup. With a unique focus each time, we’ll learn and grow together.

This is for folks who have previously attended one of the BASICS Meetups.

We'll utilize the many NVC Key Differentiations, and you will be provided handouts to support new concepts and learning. We recommend you bring a notepad and pen.

We often engage in role plays, including an NVC mediation, and you are free to participate as much as you'd like.
