Maryland 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.

    This Baltimore group is a hybrid - a core group that meets usually on the third Sunday afternoon each month in the Charles/Cold Spring area of Baltimore for an NVC workshop and practice. We sometimes help orient "newbies" with a handout on the basics of NVC. Please email us for that.

    All are welcome. It's no surprise to "oldies" that new faces and insights add depth to our understanding too. Usually the specific date and topic are announced in the Events section of the website.

    The workshop fee is $20, requested only if given with comfort.

    The Columbia Group still meets once a month but has moved to the 3rd Monday night of each month. We have been meeting for 2 years. Limited to 10 participants due to rotation meetings in homes. Currently taking names for Waiting List. We do not currently have contact information for this group. Please let us know if you have contact information.

  • District of Columbia ! Maryland

    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).
