Life is not always nice. Friends are not always friendly.
Lovers are not always loving. Hurts simply hurt.

It is essential to living a life with harmony, connection, and the fulfillment of needs, yours and others.

Nonviolent Communication, NVC, also referred to as Compassionate Communication, offers a new model of relating that will transform your way of using words, leading to open, honest and effective communication from the heart.
