Robyn Marie Bors Veraart – Provision’s main NVC mobiliser
Robyn Marie Bors Veraart is Provision’s main NVC mobiliser. Since completing the process of becoming a certified trainer of NonViolent Communication (NVC) in 2019, Robyn has refreshed her work with individuals, families and organisations now in the role of NVC consultant. This weaves the thread of her former professional life as Transpersonal Psychotherapist and Music Therapist (M.A. Naropa University, 2000) into new currency in the fabric of her present-life situation.
Her life experiences in 4 countries, 4 languages, 2 continents and 50 years is what she brings to her sessions, now held both face-to-face in Provision’s natural settings as well as online globally. She offers her skills of facilitation and mediation with the purpose of increasing awareness of all of our familial and collective traumas and helping humanity to heal into and through them.
NVC at Provision
Live and On-line NVC consultation
Robyn offers both live and online NVC consultation sessions which draw from her experience as a practitioner of Buddhist Psychotherapy (M.A. Naropa University), Music Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Zen meditation, and many forms of Yoga.
Robyn has served as a mediator with a trauma and grief -informed perspective for individuals, families and organisations.
Robyn engages with constellation work which she sees as a practice of deep empathy which facilitates emergent understanding with the potential to bring greater relationality to all that lives within and around the seeker.
All financial proceeds of individual, family or organisational work with Robyn go to support the mission of Provision Transylvania association.
Provision regularly hosts live NVC trainings, summer camps and weekend workshops. Please see our events page for details about upcoming NVC events at Provision. Often these workshops are collaborative endeavors with the ‘Comunicare nonviolenta’ organisation based in Cluj-Napoca.
“I would like us to create peace at three levels and have each of us to know how to do it. First, within ourselves. That is to know how we can be peaceful with ourselves when we’re less than perfect, for example. How we can learn from our limitations without blaming and punishing our self. If we can’t do that, I’m not too optimistic how we’re going to relate peacefully out in the world. Second, between people. Nonviolent Communication training shows people how to create peace within themselves and at the same time how to create connections with other people that allows compassionate giving to take place naturally. And third, in our social systems. To look out at the structures that we’ve created, the governmental structures and other structures, and to look at whether they support peaceful connections between us and if not, to transform those structures.” Marshall Rosenberg
