    “I can’t say enough about the power of one week in your life. I took the Compassionate (NVC) Communication course at the Haven on Gabriola Island with Mitch Miyagawa in 2014, and it changed my life. Helped me decide to become a certified NVC trainer myself, and it has introduced me to the most remarkable people with new insights into my own inner journey. HIGHLY recommend it! Living NVC is a glorious place to be!”
