Bay Area IIT: Power, Privilege, and the Body

December 1 - December 10

with Miki Kashtan, Roxy Manning, Jeyanthy Siva, Sarah Peyton, and Bob Wentworth

On the theme of Power and Privilege.


Program: This event is a 9-day residential training designed as an “immersion experience” in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) for people at all levels of NVC understanding led by a team of experienced CNVC trainers. This particular intensive will include the standard IIT curriculum and will also have a special focus on the themes of Power, Privilege, and the Body.

Vision: To bring together the values and worldview of NVC and the social analysis that emerges from movements from social justice to support individuals in facing the realities of the world from the multiple social and cultural locations in which they live.

Purpose: To support the movement towards this vision by offering an intensive training in NVC that is informed by the following questions:

  • How does the lens of power* and privilege** combine with the deep practices of NVC to create relationships with self, other, and the world that are informed by social analysis?
  • What does social analysis look like when informed by the perspective of putting needs at the center?
  • How do trauma and power differences affect the body and how can NVC learning support an accelerated path to inner freedom?

Listen to Sarah and Bob Wentworth Discuss how to merge NVC, systems thinking and the body with trauma healing:
