It is very encouraging to see that someone in this violent speaking world is dedicated to trying to make a difference, even if a small amount. I was turned on to NVC by Eddie, over four years ago, and although still difficult at times to practice, the concepts have never left me, and I take the chance when presented, to share what he has taught me with others....kudos to Eddie...Paul Jamison

Hi Eddie, Your work touches me deeply. I know of numerous domestic violence programs and most have, at best, a recidivism rate of around 40% within 5 years. To hear of the results through this approach and the compassion you bring gives me hope we truly are able to support this love and care to blossom, and to remove this trauma so many partners and children go through. Thank you! I look forward to learning more about your work and hopefully being part of sharing it in some way. Shari Sydney Australia
