Living Communication

~ authenticity, empathy, aliveness, wonder, compassion, body wisdom ~


I'm grateful you're visiting my humble website... 

The name "Living Communication" grew out of my blossoming passion for the work of Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process, often referred to as Compassionate Communication, also Language of the Heart and even "Giraffe" Language.  I've be scattering the seeds of this compassionate language process since 2004....  

Living Communication involves the blend of the awareness of what is alive in you in this moment, the capacity to express yourself with authenticity; it's about coming from a constant place of seeing the world with fresh eyes, in wonder... it's about trusting your own body's wisdom as a compass for meeting your needs & your nurturing yourself and others with compassion and sweet empathy.


My desire is to share my years of knowledge and demonstrate living the NVC consciousness in my personal life and in the Sarasota area, throughout Florida (and beyond).  Sharing by offering workshops and classes in these effective yet challenge life skills, as well as contributing to my and others' learning through organizing retreats and training arenas for CNVC certified trainers.  It's meaningful and exciting for me to contribute to harmony in the world, beginning with YOU, in the community and watching the ripples of compassion reach out across the globe.

NVC enthusiasts globally have been blessed by attending instruction & coaching opportunities facilitated & organized by me.  Folks from Tampa to Miami,  Tennessee, Maine, Michigan, and even from locations as far away as Sweden, Sri Lanka & Katmandu have attended these sessions!

Within these few pages, you will discover information on my 'Living Communication' offerings, which are offered with a high degree of integrity from my understanding of Marshall' Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication language process.  Additionally, you will find several links that will lead you to other folks, trainers and organizations with whom I trust deeply in sharing this profound work.  

I invite you to continue checking back as the site is updated periodically with new local and regional training events.

with deep care,    ~Mercedes
