**** “As a parent, do you ever find yourself stuck in that painful place between taking care of yourself and attending to what is important to your children? Do you long for a “middle way” between imposing your will on your children and giving in to what they want? Would you like to learn and practice these skills, together with other parents? Join guest facilitator Gregory Rouillard for a fun, engaging and interactive introduction to the principles and practices of Nonviolent Communication, also known as Compassionate Communication or NVC. During our time together, we will explore the basic assumptions and principles of NVC and learn to cultivate curiosity about what’s most important to ourselves and others, including our children.”


Gregory Rouillard is devoted to cultivating truly inter-generational experiences of authentic community for all people, and especially for parents and children. He is President and Director of Family Heart Camp, a nationwide network of summer camps for all ages grounded in the principles and practices of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). When he is not at camp or at home in Colorado with his family, Gregory travels the world facilitating workshops, retreats and other events for people who long to practice the “art of community.” He is a Master of Divinity graduate of Naropa University and is in the final stage of certification as a trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication.
