This embodied orientation makes what can be a confusing mental process (NVC) into a simpler body-centered practice. I appreciated David and Judith’s humanness. They are a dynamic couple. It created a lot of permission in the field to be on our own learning edge and not to have do it all perfectly coming out of the gate. –Elana Eyta
Gave me an easy way to connect the truth my body knows to situations I deal with in life. Loved integrating the somatic with NVC principles. This husband and wife co-facilitating some beautiful differences, introduced new life practices which I commit to. –Suzanne Habayashi

I came in craving intimacy and connection with myself so that I can move through my life and relations/ clarity and commitment, and this has given me that. Given me tools to accomplish my purpose. Learned how to show up for yourself, for others to live a rich life. –Sonya L
The authenticity of both leaders, the practice that supports NVC. I feel more connected to my body’s wisdom and see how deepening a body sense will serve me in so many ways. I love the trainers extensive experience and commitment to learning and the reminder that it takes PRACTICE to deepen and embody what we want to become. –Maria Maitine
How elegant the flow of the workshop went. Connecting NVC with the body so specifically, the awareness is amazing, the strategies make it possible for a day to day basic practice. Thanks so much for this workshop it was just what I was ready for and what I was asking for. –Pamela Schrack
This I realized the Saturday after the training when talking to my youngest sister. During the whole conversation, I was aware of changes in my emotions without being overtaken by them. I could go from turmoil, impatience, etc. back to peace and quietness. And from being grounded again and feeling quiet, I could really listen, really hear what my sister was saying. The need to give my story or opinion disappeared and instead, I continued to ask questions. Also, being quiet changed what further questions I asked and how I asked them. We definitely got one level deeper in our conversation, to better understanding our selves and the other, great! –Ans Smulder
The energy David and Judith brought to space felt safe, loving and supportive. An incredible workshop where we talk about how we hold feelings and pain in different ways in our bodies; how to hold each other as divine beings. They inspire me more than I can say. –Leo Bodstock
David and Judith are very good at situational analysis and the implementation of appropriate strategies. They embodied and taught seeing other people functioning fully as themselves in fullness as whole beings. –David Yeazel
Powerful inner work that provides new resources for healthy relationships. –Evan Lenz
Valuable, beautiful, fun, great connection. So glad my husband and I decided to come!! –Lisa Lenz
I loved it! The circle of support was amazing. David’s way of presenting-leadership and at the same time a fellow traveler, Judith-such an example of support that we have at our “backs”. –Mary Ann Jacobs
David and Judith are two of the most beautiful humans I’ve had the privilege to meet. I enjoyed most being a part of this small community we formed over a few weekends. It helped me learn about myself and my identity, which I’d been struggling with. This is a workshop in dealing with un-ideal emotions and feelings in a healthy provocative way, and how to stay grounded through it. ~Ruby Harrison–Clay
What a gift the weekend training was with you – so enriching and heartfelt, honest and pure. This is a generous sharing of your resources, thank you. I can’t wait to incorporate the Shape Shifting 5 Elements and Hollow Bone practice in a short retreat I’m leading on Friday. ~Meeray Ghaly -Counselor
David and Judith’s offering helped me learn to see things without conflict and better yet, get inspired by life and all that I can be. –Emily Johnston

The valuable techniques have already become a resource.
David and Judith’s truth in living, resenting and relationship in NVC-dispels illusions of doing it perfectly and offers a way of understanding it by experience and accessing a cellular understanding of it.
