Virginia 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.

    2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings: 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. Oakton, Virginia.  In this practice group, which has been meeting in the Oakton area for several years, we explore NVC themes. If you have some prior experience with NVC please contact us about possible openings -- we value the intimacy of a small group and our meeting space is close to capacity, and still, we enjoy the expanded perspectives that new members bring. For information or questions, contact Terri Fischer at 703-638-5995 or fischer [dot] terri [at] gmail [dot] com.

    Exciting new group is now forming to begin meeting by 2nd week of January 2009, meeting in Lake Ridge/Occoquan, VA.

    Open to people who want to learn NVC, and people with NVC experience and wanting to expand your ability to speak compassionately. Will meeting on each Monday or Wednesday night work best for you?

    Please will you contact Kelley of ‘The Kneaded Touch’ on 703-494-7699 or Sally at speaknvc [at] bigfoot [dot] com to join us?

    A new practice group began in early 2017. We meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of the month for 2 hours. The group is currently closed as we go through the Marshall Rosenberg book, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, and some materials from the accompanying workbook. It is anticipated that in early 2018, a new closed practice group will begin in Old Town for those who want to learn NVC by working through the book, and that there will also be an open practice group for those who have completed the NVC basic course work. If you are interested, contact Vicki Doran at victoriadoran [at] gmail [dot] com or703-850-9581, as she is keeping a list of those interested who were unable to join the now closed practice group in Old Town.

    We are Restarting—With New Times! We will gather in the South Lakes area, probably late Sunday afternoons to start and hoping to have biweekly/alternating morning and evening groups—for inclusion, flow, and flexibility. Facilitated by a graduate of the year-long Bay NVC Leadership Program and candidate for CNVC certification, with a special interest in self-care and co-creative families, organizations, and activism. 

    Meetings will take place monthly on the 3rd or 4th Sunday, 3-5pm.
