In conjunction with the non-profit organization, “Carry the Vision – Creating Communities of Nonviolence that Light up the World,” Sofia University (formerly Institute of Transpersonal Psychology) will co-sponsor a workshop on nonviolent communication on Saturdays, March 16 and 30, from 9:30am to 4pm.

As part of the university’s featured Public Programs, this workshop will be open to the public as well as students, staff and faculty. All are invited to attend this two-weekend workshop to learn how to use nonviolent communication to create change in personal and professional life. During these sessions, Marshall Rosenberg’s time-tested principles of communicating in a nonviolent way will be taught and discussed by facilitator, Robert Niederman, Ph.D. Application of these principles are meant to enhance relationships and contribute to a more peaceful world.

Niederman practiced as a psychotherapist for 14 years before becoming a coach for business leaders and CEOs. He is the co-founder of Silicon Valley Nonviolent Communication and Mindful Interactions, where nonviolent communication is taught to adults, children, parents and educators.
