About the Event

Who's it for? 

  • Have you struggled to raise systemic issues in NVC communities? 
  • Have you been sharing NVC in your own cultural context and are you excited about its potential to reach new audiences?
  • Are you longing for companionship in exploring ways to apply NVC to issues around power and privilege?

The POC4NVC retreat is designed for practitioners of NVC who identify as people of colour and who have demonstrated or are interested in stepping into leadership in sharing NVC. This is a small gathering with 20 spots available.  

 What you can expect? 

An exploration into what it means to decolonize NVC and to evolve how it is shared by applying a systemic lens.  A focus on healing practices for us in racialized bodies. An opportunity to simply connect, know each other, and grow our ability to support each other. 


$1,100 USD for food and shared accommodation; 

$1,500 USD for food and single accommodation (limited)

There is some scholarship funding available for those who need $500 or more in financial support. We want this event to be accessible and we also want to ensure that it is financially sustainable. Please contact us if you will need financial support and stay tuned for more details about how to apply for scholarship.   

This event is organised by Leonie Smith, Uma Lo, and Mika Maniwa.
