Testimonial

I want to say how much I appreciated the class last night. It gave me a much deeper understanding of what 'compassionate consciousness' is all about, and a clearer sense of the profound implications of NVC concepts.

Your own thinking and clarifying of some of the NVC concepts really resonated with me - it is so wonderful that you have put the time and thought into making those concepts more accessible and useful.

NVC Blog: The Surprising Purpose of Marriage

 

 

*The word nonviolence is the closest literal translation that Gandhi found to the Sanskrit word ahimsa.

In Sanskrit, negation is sometimes used to suggest that a concept or quality is too great to be named directly.

"Ahimsa is unconditional love," writes Eknath Easwaran, in his preface to Gandhi the Man. "The word we translate as 'nonviolence' is . . . central in Buddhism as well: Ahimsa, the complete absence of violence in word and even thought as well as action. This sounds negative, just as 'nonviolence' sounds passive. But like the English word 'flawless,' ahimsa denotes perfection."

--- from Miki Kashtan's article:"NVC: Gandhian Principles for Everyday Living ".
