Eileen McAvoy has been practicing living and sharing Nonviolent Communication (NVC) ever since she attended a 2 ½ day workshop led by Marshall Rosenberg in February of 2002. She has found that it strengthened her own spiritual foundation and added depth to the work she had been doing in conflict resolution, mediation, and facilitation. Her focus has been personal growth and interpersonal relationships. She gains particular joy from working with parents since parenting has been a strong focus in her life, raising two children and now enjoying two grandchildren. She offers introductory workshops in NVC, provides private coaching, and leads an NVC practice group that has been meeting semi-monthly since 2005. She loves participating in NVC family camps.
