Special Opportunities:


In alignment with our vision to share & deepen NVC consciousness with as many people as possible, we are making a special one time offer to first-time participants in the 2016-2017 NVC Integration Program. The first ten, first-time participants to register are invited to attend the full program by donation. You will be able to name your contribution – anywhere from $0 to the full amount! (Full amounts are: Residential $2,126; or Commuter $1,876) This offer includes tuition, lodging, meals and materials.

Any offer will be accepted as long as:

  • You are a first time participant in the Maine NVC Network Integration Program
  • You are fully registered and committed to the program by August 1, 2016
  • You are NOT planning to use the program for professional recertification contact hours*
*If you are a professional planning to use the hours toward recertification, we ask you to choose your contribution from a sliding scale of $500 to the full amount, to account for the extra record-keeping required.

This special one time offer is our way of infusing the program with energy and opening up wider possibilities to those for whom finances would be an obstacle. The offer of free coaching time for early registration will not apply for those registering through this special offer.

There is a special registration form for this offer. If you are able to contribute the full amount, please use the original registration form here.
