Helping Friends Changed My Life
by Miki Kashtan
"How have you been?" I asked Alison. I hadn't seen her in months, and was expecting a short and chatty update on her studies, some joking, and for both of us to continue on. Life as graduate students left little room for more. I never would have dreamed that this question would be the beginning of a change of direction in my life. Alison looked around her to see if anyone was listening, and proceeded to tell me that her relationship was falling apart. I followed her into her office, and listened to her tale and her tears. The year was 1996, and I was still new to NVC, having just been to my first intensive training a few months before. That didn't deter me from offering to meet with her and her partner Jeff. I knew I was still clunky, and I nonetheless had faith in the process. Read Full Article.

|Media Projector & Screen
Over the past few months we have noticed a renewed sense of cohesion within our team. We are feeling empowered and inspired while working together to bring about useful changes in the day-to-day operations of BayNVC. One of our strategies is to have weekly working team meetings where we accomplish tasks as group within the meeting. We are now recognizing how useful it would be to have our own media projector and portable screen so all the staff could be looking at and editing the same information. We also need a projector for some of our presentations and events. Here is an idea of what we are looking for:
Mac & PC Compatible Projector - Like this ViewSonic available on Amazon
Portable Screen - Like this one available at Best Buy
Our budget being what it is, we would love to have someone donate these items. Perhaps that person is you?
