Collaborative Communication Retreat

6th Annual East Coast NVC Women’s Retreat

Thursday, August 20 – Sunday, August 23

Light on the Hill Retreat Center
Van Etten, New York


Connection — it’s not just bars on your cellphone, it’s how you relate to othersyourselfand life. Are you making time for what really matters? Holding your own needs with careand creating the life you wantin work, your relationships, and your own well being?

Compassionate/Collaborative Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication/NVC), offers life- changing skills to help you better connect with yourself and others. These skills have broad application–in everyday and  challenging situations, at work and at home, to ensure that you’re being heard and hearing others, and resolving differences in a way that’s free of judgment, demand, guilt or blame.

The East Coast NVC Women’s Retreat offers a unique opportunity each year for women to learn and deepen their NVC skills and to explore and expand what is available and possible from connecting more deeply with others and themselves. The retreat offers a  time for rest and reflection in a nurturing and supportive environment, something that rarely happens for most of us. Women tell us year after year that this retreat is deeply enriching, energizing,  life-changing and healing—supporting key changes in their life.

We create together a caring community–of deep healing, empathy, mutual support, learning–and fun!  This comfortable and newly constructed retreat center will nourish you as we engage in diverse conversations, offerings, workshops, quiet times, NVC practices, community meals, and celebrations. We have a use of a private pond on site, hiking trails, and a beautiful meditation hut. Music also plays a key part of the retreat, including a fire circle at night.
