When cultivating, living and applying NVC consciousness, it may shift any kind of relationship to a more satisfactory and enriching experience for everybody involved. I believe that relationships based upon giving and receiving from the heart bring inner peace to people and the planet.

Wherever human beings meet – in families, kindergardens, schools, work places, in organisations, institutions and politics – NVC, which promotes a compassionate language of the heart, may prevent and resolve conflicts and create the space for mutual respect and appreciation even in difficult situations. This is also true für me for relationships between a human and an animal.
