Mair Alight Comes To Carbondale

Tod and Mair: Tod Kington and Mair Alight.Four years ago I found a video on YouTube, it was an interview with Marshal Rosenberg discussing his technology of Nonviolent Communication. I was inspired and hopeful. Could there be a way in which I might have a clearer understanding of the words and intentions of the people in my life? It was only after my initial experience with NVC that I began to realize how much my life was plagued with misunderstanding, frustrations and enemy images in my relationships. What I became aware of initially in my pursuit of Nonviolent Communication is the degree to which we are all suffering from a deeply frustrated relationship with language. I slowly became aware that just because we are all native users of language it takes a special kind of intention to bring words into the service of life. That just left to chance, language can be deeply destructive and alienating. After My initial experiments with NVC I committed myself to finding a teacher and a mentor.
