About Nonviolent Communication:

Marshall Rosenberg's process Nonviolent Communication, which was named out of a sense of alignment with Gandhi's movement of truth-telling and compassion, is a world-famous, proven, time-tested methodology:
- for creating exceptional personal and professional relationships,
- for offering compassionate understanding to others (and knowing when & how to ask for it ourselves),
- for preventing and resolving misunderstandings and conflicts,
- for speaking our truth in a way that is more likely to lead to harmony than conflict, and
- for creating mutual understanding without coercion.

About Alan Seid

I grew up bilingual and bicultural in the US and Mexico. I have been passionate about best practices for living in harmony within ourselves, with each other, and with the planet since the 1980s — and currently teach several of these methodologies. I live at a place called Bodhi Creek Farm, which I found when I was looking for a place to create a learning center for these ‘best practices’. One of these, Nonviolent Communication, I began studying in 1995 and became a Certified Trainer in in 2003. I work primarily as a coach and adviser, helping Changemakers take their life and impact to the next level.

About Bodhi Creek Farm (BCF)

BCF is a gorgeous and unique property located in the foothills of Washington State's North Cascades mountains. BCF is comprised of 25 acres, located where mountain and wetlands come together, making it very ecologically rich. We have different kinds of frogs and salamanders, beavers, otters, several kinds of woodpeckers (the list goes on),  and the forest is filled with native edible and medicinal plants. This 25 acres is part of a larger group of properties and neighbors with a long-term vision to form an ecovillage.
