Shammi Nanda has been learning and sharing NVC for more than five years. He dreams of a world of Ahimsa where every one’s voice matters and each person’s needs are heard and taken care of to their satisfaction. He believes that there is enough on this planet for all of us to live a life of wellbeing and peace, if only we can appreciate the beautiful needs of the others while valuing and expressing what is important for us.
He is inspired by works of Marshall Rosenberg on NVC who has said that our true human nature is of joyful giving and receiving and for some reason humanity has gone astray from it and NVC gives us tools to come back home to our natural ways of joyful giving and receiving with all beings on this planet. Shammi is passionate about sharing NVC as he travels around the country and outside. He is now working on creating a South Asia Peace Network with friends from neighbouring countries.

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is based on the principles of nonviolence - the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in our heart. NVC begins by assuming that we are all compassionate by nature and that violent strategies—whether verbal or physical—are learnt behaviours taught and supported by the prevailing culture. NVC also assumes that we all share the same, basic human needs, and that each of our actions are a strategy to meet one or more of these needs. To know more about NVC visit http://www.cnvc.org
People who practice NVC have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection and conflict resolution.

Like many spaces across India and around the world, Swaraj University and the Swapathgami Network are experimenting and working with rethinking our lifestyles and our relationship with ourselves, our work, our resources and our communities. We are questioning, challenging and experimenting with our set notions of money.
So we welcome you to join our experiment and explore your relationship with money.
By participating in such workshops you are in a non-monetary way, supporting and encouraging such learning spaces to stay alive. You are, in a beautiful way, taking forward the larger movement of reclaiming our learning. However, it is important that we all contribute and take care of the needs of the facilitator and meet the actual expenses for hosting such a workshop.
Your contribution will support to pay for the food and stay expenses of the workshop at Swaraj University and will help Shammi to take care of himself and continue to expand his work so that it can reach more and more people. To know what Shammi intends to do with the money he receives see https://goo.gl/a0GbEn
The suggested contribution for this workshop is ₹5000.
We would like to accommodate everyone who is interested in this field of work and we understand that some of us might find it challenging to contribute the above mentioned amount. So, please feel free to write to us or call us to request for a scholarship, so that we can discuss how we can support each other in ways satisfying for all of us. In the end we don’t want money to come in your way of receiving this valuable gift.
