Upcoming Workshops

Immersion Training with Mediate Your Life

with John Kinyon, Cindy Bigbie, Ph.D., and Julya Denholm

The full year Mediate Your Life Immersion consistes of three 4-day intensives with partner practice in between.  (See below for dates.) In our Mediate Your Life training, we help you develop the capacity and skills to mediate conflicts between others, between yourself and others, and within yourself; and to do this in the stress and intensity of conflict reactions.  At the core of our training is the model of Compassionate Communication (NVC), an internationally renowned body of work that brings compassion through a language of the heart that connects us to our commonality with each other and with life.

The Communication Solution

This is a two-day intensive workshop designed to give participants both knowledge and experience with the building blocks of the Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process. Individuals with varied NVC backgrounds are welcome.  Recommended text for the class is Nonviolent Communication – A Language of Life by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.


The two-day workshop not only provided me with the theoretical construct underpinning NVC, but more importantly allowed me to experience peaceful resolution of real-life problems with a win-win outcome. Dr. Cindy Bigbie is a highly motivated, effective and dedicated facilitator that makes the workshop well worth the commitment. – Frank C.
