The Leadership Team
Roxy Manning and François Beausoleil have skillfully lead the LP since 2008. Together they create a dynamic and rich learning laboratory. They delve into the depth of each topic they teach and use what is present in the group at each moment to model NVC facilitation, mediation and consciousness. They each have a unique NVC trainer finger print, and transparently share the space of co-facilitating for all to learn from.
Each year, guest trainers join the retreats to contribute their unique skills, experience and expressions of NVC.
Each year graduates of the LP program join our team as assistant trainers and are a powerful and essential part of the program. All of us – program participants, assistants, and leaders –deeply enjoy and appreciate the contribution of LP assistants. They contribute to the depth and richness of connection and learning through: personal contact with program participants (quarterly calls and some additional availability when the need arises); empathy support during retreats; leading small groups; and engaging in many other invisible support activities. Here are some of the folks who will be on the 2017 assistant team.
