SeminarGourmets, with Work Collaboratively and the East Coast Women’s Retreat, are delighted to present, the first International NVC Women’s Retreat 

We are the leaders—in creating change!


How are you living in alignment with your own vision and values? And creating change at work, home and in your community?

Come deepen your self-connection and capacity for authentic engagement with others via three days of living and learning Compassionate, Nonviolent Communication with 2 highly supportive and experienced trainers: Dian Killian, a CNVC Certified Trainer, certified life coach, and author of two well loved NVC books, Connecting across Differences (in English and German) and Urban Empathy, and Iris Bawidamann, co-founder of SeminarGourmets, diversity trainer, and with 12 years of experience in supporting people living their passion and understanding themselves and others more deeply.  Choose from different tracks on various applications of NVC, ideal for those both new to NVC and wanting to deepen their practice. In addition to the trainers, two assistant trainers will support the program.

Why an NVC Women’s Retreat? The learning, healing, connection and community that develops in this community of women is unique. We have seen it repeatedly the last 7 years as we’ve gathered in upstate NY. Being part of an empathic community of women has supported us in exploring our lives and stepping into our power in new ways. We now look forward now to extending this experience and enlarging the circle of community to an international group of women in a stunning location in the west of Ireland, unparalleled  in the world for majestic beauty. Come for the retreat and stay to celebrate St Patricks’ Day in Ireland in Dublin, Cork or Galway the following week.

What is NVC?  Compassionate/Collaborative Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication/NVC), offers life- changing skills to help you better connect with yourself and others. These skills have broad application–in everyday and challenging situations, at work and at home that support your being heard and hearing others and resolving differences in a way that’s free of judgment, demand, guilt or blame.  Learn everyday tools that fosters greater joy, gratitude and connection, with yourself and others!

What happens at the Retreat? An NVC Women’s Retreat offers a unique opportunity for women to learn and deepen their NVC skills and to explore and expand what is available and possible from connecting more deeply with others and themselves in a deeply caring and supportive environment. The retreat offers time for rest and reflection as well as learning and development.  Women tell us year after year that this retreat is deeply enriching, healing, and energizing—supporting significant changes in their lives. Women find it easier to talk about their lives in a frank, open and supportive way at a women-only retreat.
