PAIRS and partners


  • NVC TIPS & TRICKS to support shared understanding and care

  • Learn to choose when you want to access the 3 NVC TOOLS-NOT-RULES (checking, self-referencing, translating), and to use them!

  • 8 weekly zoom calls building shared understanding and co-creating increasing harmony and the evidence of care with both you and your practice partner.

  • We'll practice with our own partners and in breakouts (unrecorded) with other people for different perspectives in challenging situations.


Who is it for?

  • For people who want to improve their communications with each other to support their relationship.

  • Registration open for two people to enroll together.

  • Could be romantic partners, work colleagues, parent/adult child, friends, siblings...

What to bring:

  • Please each of you use one person per device, so that you are each able to go into breakouts with others.

  • You are requested to bring your curiosity and openness to learn and practice.

  • Find a quiet place for the call, and have available your chosen method for note-taking. This is interactive practicing, not a lecture series!

  • Just like you play exercises on the piano to learn and grow increasingly proficient, we'll practice the learnable, reliable, practical, simple tools of NVC together on the calls, and with your sharing partner between calls

Read what present and past participants have said about the benefits and value of being on calls with Mair:

  • "I wanted you to know I just love your groups!.. I find them rich, compassionate, educational, inspiring and heart warming!! smile comes on my face just thinking about them!!" Warmly, Carol Harrington, M.A., C.M.T.

  • "During Mair's Mentoring Calls I experienced her creative, NVC exercises as both fun & easy to apply to my life." Kelley Giaramita, Wellness Consultant  

  • "I participated in 6 calls with Mair and a group of NVC enthusiasts through the month of January. I found myself nervous as I was new to the teleconference format and to NVC. However, within a couple of calls I felt at ease. My heart was opened by the honest sharing of participants and the deep listening and curiosity Mair brought to each session and person. Over these several weeks, I have come to feel more alive and celebratory toward myself and others. I've opened to new truths and wisdom within myself. The support of others also sharing their truth and honoring my own, has left me feeling inspired, enlivened and hopeful!

  • Thank-you Mair for guiding this process with such ease and integrity. And thank-you to all the participants who offered their companionship and acceptance!" with warmth, Gwen
