NVC 2024

               Some Organizations We've Worked With:


Lisa Michaels

"I realized how much NVC I was absorbing just through participating in the calls when I found myself using components of it with a coworker a couple of days without even thinking about it, and I decided I needed to keep the momentum going!"

"I'm amazed at how much like magic, the techniques I'm learning, help me understand relationship dynamics and ease through difficult conversations. Thank you so much much Mair and Gustavo, for all that you do to provide this service"

"Overall, I learned a great deal. I learned that to use nonviolent communication we need to slow down, we need to listen carefully to others, and choose our words carefully. There is a lot of violence in language that conveys, judgement, blame, and criticism. We hear a lot of Jackal language in the world and in our lives every day. NVC provides a great way to refocus these conversations towards feelings and needs. I believe we all need more of this."

Mair has the gift of genuine curiosity and joyful enthusiasm for offering tools for choice and change while at the same time accepting people just as they are.
Mair uses the diversity of her life experiences and trainings in a multitude of modalities sharing stories, songs and images to inspire and connect with others in her unique way.
Mair  spent 500+ hours with Marshall Rosenberg, originator/developer of Nonviolent Communication, as he modeled and shared his way of connecting with others. Mair was invited and participated in a 15-day experiment in social change at Marshall's then-home in Switzerland with 60+ participants from around the world.

In the sharing of Nonviolent Communication over the decades, Mair founded The Withing Way© to offer the  3 Tools-not-Rules that can create lasting, reliable, simple,  immediate change in people's lives.
