District of Columbia Practice Groups

Joining an NVC practice group is a highly effective way of deepening your practice of NVC, and is also likely to offer satisfying interpersonal connections. These practice groups are independently organized. Capital NVC is not responsible for their operation. Information on practice groups is provided here as a service to the community.

    Friday Mornings, 10:30-12:30

    This is a daytime Practice Group for those who want NVC learning, growth, connection, and empathy—at a time that might better fit into their schedules. This is a “Deepening Skills” group, with some previous NVC experience requested. This is an ongoing group, whose members commit to making ongoing attendance a priority over a period of time. The group has decided to "stay small," so there is often a waiting list for prospective members. This group has rotating facilitators. Contact: Kathy Carroll (kathy [at] kathleencarroll [dot] com) to register, to get more information, or with questions about the amount of NVC experience requested.

    We meet a few blocks from the Takoma Metro every Tuesday night from 7:00 pm - 9:00 p.m. This is an open, weekly drop-in group. Our usual format is to have short check-ins, then an NVC teaching piece for the whole group, and some time for work in pairs or triads, either empathy or practice related to the learning piece. We often use role plays or worksheets and also have used the Empathy Labyrinth and Dance Floors. This group is facilitated by Kathy Carroll. For more information and directions, contact: Kathy Caroll (202.723.2233) or Mary Liepold (301.593.4999).
