On Monday, April 18, at 7:30 pm at the Carbondale Civic Center in Room 112, the Carbondale Human Relations Commission will host an evening with Mair Alight. Alight, a Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication, will engage participants in an experience of Nonviolent Communication and how NVC can be practiced in everyday life – at work, school, home, and in the community. This program is part of the HRC’s ongoing Nonviolent Carbondale Project.
Alight has learned and practiced with Marshall Rosenberg since 2000, attending International Trainings and bringing Nonviolent Communication to many countries and populations. She co-founded the San Quentin Teaching Team and worked with victim-offender reconciliation programs. She has worked with businesses, with mental health providers, and with schools. She has broad experience working with individuals and communities.
Marshall Rosenberg is the author of Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, and founder of The Center for Nonviolent Communication. An international peacemaker, educator, and mediator, Rosenberg has been developing and sharing his communication process for peacemaking for 50 years.
