I have studied with Jim & Jori over the past year or so and am truly inspired and expanded by their heartful and skilled NVC training and mentorship.

For anyone who is curious about / interested in developing skills in Mediation or want to experience different NVC trainers, I highly recommend this program!

Greetings Friends,
Would you enjoy sharpening and/or refreshing your NVC conflict resolution skills?  Please join us for our new Mediation Dojo, beginning April 23.

Mediation Dojo 1:  Being a Third Presence with 

Jori and Jim Manske, CNVC.org Certified Trainers 



    8 weekly facilitated sessions Thursdays from 1-3pm US-PT starting April 23, 2015          (click here for your time zone)


Join Jori and Jim Manske, certified mediators since 1993, in an exploration of using Nonviolent Communicationsm in the context of Mediation and Conflict Resolution. Opportunities for practice will be woven with lessons covering the essential elements needed in order to begin to use the NVC process during conflict situations. There will be extensive coaching and feedback offered. To maximize practice opportunities, each trainer will facilitate a smaller group during portions of the program and the class size will be limited to 24 participants. 

Connect with others in a 8-week workshop series integrating the skills and consciousness of empathy, honesty and self-connection in the context of becoming a "third presence" with others who are in conflict.

  • Identifying reactions to conflict

  • Focusing on observations, feelings, needs and requests to support people in taking responsibility for their own experience, and being compassionate with themselves

  • "Pulling by the ears" to help people hear the observations, feelings, needs, and requests of the other parties in the dispute, and build compassion for each other

  • Offering "emergency first-aid empathy" when emotions are intense and people do not have the resources to listen to each other

  • Tracking and balancing the process to clarity that everyone's needs are heard and acknowledged

  • Identifying and using needs as a guideline to craft agreements

  • Using requests to find strategies, and checking to see if they work for everyone


Each session will be recorded and archived to enable participants to review all sessions for enhanced learning possibilities.

Series of 8 weekly facilitated 2-hour sessions for $165. Also includes optional peer-led weekly practice sessions.                   (Scholarship available.)

Upon REGISTERING ONLINE HERE, you will receive an e-mail with complete instructions for how to access the call. All registrants will receive recordings of all class sessions.

8 weekly facilitated 2-hour sessions Thursdays, 1 - 3pm US-PT beginning April 24, 2015 (4:00 PM GMT)

Please check out my #1 online newspaper (#1 in the Well-Being Category on Scoop.it!) Thanks for your support!:  

Please join me in a commitment to live from the consciousness that we are

Please, let every word that you speak or type be empathically cleansed of
any thought or feeling of separateness before you open your mouth or press “send”. (This in no way implies there is a correct form!)

Please, let every word you hear be filtered by empathy so all you hear is “Please” and “Thank you”.

Please, let every communication express our common aim of living nonviolence and compassion.

May we remember our vision and mission each and every moment, and measure our own actions (and inactions) in relation to those commitments.

Jim Manske

"The only barrier to peace and happiness is the thought that considers the current situation wrong or inadequate. That thought is like a plant that flowers in our feelings, activities and relationships, but has deep roots. It is not enough to pick the flower."
