I am a CNVC certified trainer and a Mediator, originally from Israel, and now based in Amsterdam. I was a dancer/choreographer when I met NVC in 2001. While learning it deeper and deeper, in 2008 I decided to stop all my artistic activities in order to have my time and energy fully be dedicated to teaching/living NVC. During the week I teach in Amsterdam, and nearly every weekend I teach Internationally in France, Israel/Palestine, Belgium, Poland, Italy, USA, and more.
My focus is on the Embodied part of NVC. NVC for me is ‘taking my Meditation cushion into real life’. I love people (or perhaps I might say say ‘I am obsessed with people’), and I love the miniature delicacy of figuring out ‘what’s going on between people’ moment by moment what prevents love and cooperation to flow naturally. I see my mastery being in ‘The art of Dialogues’, Intimate Relationships, Connecting with Children, Radical Honesty and Radical Empathy.
In 2016 I initiated the Democratic NVC school in Amsterdam- ‘L.I.F.E’ (Learning In Free Environment)’- for children at the age of 4 until 18 years old.
