Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is both a spiritual practice that helps us see our common humanity and a concrete set of skills that help us to live more peacefully. These skills apply to thought, language, and a commitment to a certain use of power. Also known as “Compassionate Communication,” or “Conscious Communication,” NVC involves honest expression, listening with empathy, and developing a more compassionate inner relationship.
