Marianne Göthlin, lives in Stockholm, Sweden.
Marianne has been practicing NVC for 25 years and was certified as CNVC trainer 1998. Marianne is sharing NVC internationally, collaborating with many trainers and regularly serve at IITs – international intensive trainings.
Marianne has a deep engagement in education, using the process of Nonviolent Communication to foster compassionate relations in learning environments, all levels. She has implemented NVC in public schools as well as co-founded a school based on connection and co-operation.
This experience has led to involvement in international projects where big organisations strive to acknowledge humanness. “During my time of sharing NVC I have been missing images and material that reflects the clarity and beauty that NVC brings to me. Now I have spent three fun and productive years working together with En Dolci to create that material. We have used it in trainings and the consistent feedback led us to form visfera.com and offer the material also to others.”
En Dolci, lives in Palermo, Italy.
En Dolci was raised in a culture of nonviolence, partly in Sicily and partly in Sweden. He was early exposed to the methodology of Reciprocal Maieutic Approach
, which is still a big influence in his life and work. After working as head developer of educational sales tools in northern Europe, focusing on interactions, human behaviour, and relations, he decided to change path in life and work even closer to the values he care for. “Curiosity in life naturally leads to creativity…which give rise to more curiosity in life.”
The last years En has deepened his work on human values and developed material for shared explorations. This to support clarity about the opportunities around us. Now he is fully engaged in creating visfera material. This through visualizing abstract concepts like feelings and needs that can be used in a concrete way. “Since the first connection with Marianne and NVC I knew that I wanted to contribute to make NVC more rooted individually as well as globally in today’s society.”
