Gabriele has been working as a trainer with children and adults for almost 30 years. Born in Vienna/Austria she studied cultural anthropology and worked in international and national projects, workshops and NGOS that deal with power imbalance, racism, enemy images and restorative justice.
In her work Gabriele enjoys exploring different ways of reaching people, learning and working together – focussing not only on individual learning but on how to enable each of us to transform the structures we live in and create a more satisfying quality of connection.
As a CNVC-certified trainer Gabriele shares NVC in different kinds of organizations in the field of education, economy, justice, health and in residential communities with individuals and teams of varying sizes. In many long term projects in schools, universities, organisations, communities and companies Gabriele supports people to consciously choose ways towards understanding, cooperation and peaceful conflict dialogue – and step by step to co-create structures that support partnership, mutual empowerment, new ways of leadership and inclusion in learning and working environments. www.echt.info
Jacqueline Muller is a certified trainer with the International Center for Nonviolent Communication, co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Compassionate Communication Network, and a Restorative Justice facilitator. She has worked with a diversity of people and groups in search of authentic expression and honest communication for 24 years. Her multi-cultural background as well as her quest for peace and justice has led her to work on immigration integration dialogue projects in Colorado and youth projects in the Middle East. Her passion for meaning, equanimity, and opportunities for all gives her teaching depth and gusto. Her outreach in offering NVC trainings extends beyond Colorado to Europe and Africa. She facilitates RJ circles, and supports individuals, couples, family members, and groups in her private practice, to create clear, engaged, and heart based communication.
As a Certified trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, I love sharing NVC by facilitating workshops and supporting individuals and groups.
In family contexts, education or corporate, I offer training, parenting support, coaching and personal development, NVC mediation, facilitation of groups. In Italy, I collaborate with the Centro Esserci – NVC workshop center and publishing house and with the non profit organization and educational project www.parlarepace.it inspired by NVC and Montessori education.
I met CNV in 2012 just as my wife and I were waiting for the birth of our first daughter. I was immediately struck by the possibility that NVC offered me to try to experience parenthood and relationships in a completely different and meaningful way for me. Since then I started my journey to learn and live NVC.
In 2014 I quit my job to spend one year and a half with my daughter as a “full-time dad”.
In 2016, inspired by putting into practice my learning with NVC to create a different workplace, where people could experience authentic collaboration and pleasure to work together, together with my wife and some friends, we created “In Pasta – cibo e convivio” an artisanal pasta laboratory and restaurant. Today up to 10 people works there.
I’m graduated in Computer Engineering and I worked in the past in the field of Supply Chain and Logistic.
Today, besides offering trainings in nonviolent communication, I share the care of my children.
I live with my wife and our three children by the west coast in Tuscany, Italy.
I am passionate aboutNonviolent Communication because it helps me to trust that there is always a solution for each involved person’s satisfaction. This is really uplifting to me and I am excited to share this with others.
During my first training in 1996 I heard from Marshall Rosenberg: “If you don’t like something speak up without being critical toward anyone”.
This idea really got me. Before I heard this I tried to be “a good girl” with not much success. The harder I tried, the more uncomfortable I felt and after a while, no matter what, I exploded. Having achieved a lot of integrating heart to heart honesty, I still have a long way to go.
During the past 20 years I have offered courses or training at least for 10.000 people in more than 35 countries.
NVC came to me unobtrusively. I ‘stumbled’ upon it in 2009, little imagining what a life-changing event that would be. Within a day of my first training and my encounter with the concept of Needs, I was hooked. Now, more than a decade later, I am excited to be part of a worldwide community, which holds the vision that every life matters, every voice must be heard, and that, beyond our opinions and diversities, we can access our shared humanity and compassion. I see the potential of NVC, today more than ever, of helping us focus on what binds us rather than what scatters and separates us. I am excited to be part of the IIT team in Tanzania and am looking forward to contributing to growing the NVC community and building meaningful connections.
I love children and in the long run it is my aim to give them a voice, support their self-esteem and identify their limits and how to say no.I am a trainer in NVC since 2005, CNVC certified since 2010. I am a certified mediator (BM) since 2013. I judge myself as being a very engaged person:
I am biologist. Almost every second year (2007 2010 2012 2014 2106 2018) I conduct an international workshop in Germany for people who work with children, daily from the street from India, the Philippines and some African countries (Ghana, Kenia, Ethiopia, South Africa, Namibia, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, South Sudan, Zimbabwe). During our workshop we try to live in the awareness of NVC with the participants for 10 days. They go home and give it over to their children in slum schools, orphans houses and other children homes. In the mean time I am invited to some of those countries for further workshops with teachers, children and parents.
I like to work in teams with a kind of mature personality and who put their focus on the development and support of the participants. I like to guide groups from the back, because for me self-responsibility is essential. I like to combine NVC with interactions, in order to learn more about Non-Violence in a playful way.
I learned via my projects, that for many humans in these countries they are not so much interested in NVC, if the stomach is empty. So, I am looking for ideas to support, to create networks, to look for financial support in different areas in order to support these humans in their dignity. Therefore in completion to my NVC approach we support little entrepreneur business in some African countries, special for women and children. So they get food and money for school uniforms. Education is one of the most essential topics for me.
I am 63 years and love to play, so all this NVC work is done in a playful way, step by step. I am a trainer for cooperative adventure games.
For me Nonviolent Communication is essential in a self-determined, self-responsible life. It is
- a special method,
- a special awareness of how to approach other humans and
- it is a kind of development cooperation.
Therefore this is part of my life and I am very willing to hand it over to as many people as possible, specially to children mostly indirect.
