Rhonda Eldridge is the Camp Co-Host of Family HEART Camp of West Virginia and is a certified CNVC trainer. She has come to believe that social change cannot take place at a ‘societal’ level, because society is made up of individuals. Whatever our history is, whatever we just ate, whatever the temperature is outside, it is all within the same pool of universal needs and feelings. If we can come to each other with that ‘knowing’ and be truly present to the current aliveness in ourselves and in the other, then the fear subsides. If the fear subsides between you and me, then it has a chance to subside between you and the next person, and me and the next person, and so on.
Rhonda has been a core member of the NVC Northern Virginia Practice Group for five years. She lives in the Blueberry Hill CoHousing community with her family.
