First Class Free!

I find myself looking forward to my monthly Bulletin letter because I am so delighted to unveil some of the changes that are happening at BayNVC!


This month's big news ----drumroll---- is the first class of every Foundations I series will be free!


In evaluating our efforts, we have noticed that less than 20% of the people who take our intro class continue on to any of our other classes or workshops. Since our intros take a lot of work to setup, we thought offering the first Foundations class free would serve the two-fold purpose of minimizing our effort while still allowing people to have a taste of our offering before they sign up.


Beginning in July, people who are curious about NVC are invited to come to a free Foundations class, and then are invited to continue with the Foundations series if they want to learn more.


As always, I would love to hear any feedback from you about this and other changes we are making. Feel free to email me with your thoughts - Dorrit@BayNVC.org.

When we see others as evil, unable to care, or in some fundamental way immune to transformation, then the only available strategy is to overpower and vanquish them. Embracing the Gandhian approach and upholding the humanity of our "enemies" lead to other strategies to create change. Read Full Article.
