Dear Kevin J. Martin,


I hope over there you are just as weaned on Marshall B. Rosenberg's Ted Talk
on NVC (non-violent communication)..as we over here  in the UK (since 2006
at least) =  'student's new Zeitgeist indoctrination' for peace and harmony
throughout life via NVC.

His first Ted Talk vid with guitar says more or less all there is to say - I
hope you are giving him a look-in for those who haven't yet made the
discover. Visit Ted Talks....

Thank you Kevin,

 Talk Summary

Many of us are interested in and strive for peaceful engagement in our
families, communities, schools, and nation, and there are strong calls for
peace within our education community (e.g., Oxford, 2013; The Language of
Peace: Communicating to Create Harmony) and in international engagement
initiatives (e.g., Gopin, 2016; Healing the Heart of Conflict). However,
understandings about ways to live in peace often remain abstract, and the
language that we observe in politics, the media, and even in education (and
that we use ourselves) is often filled with judgments, labels, and blame,

talk are to review key principles and components of nonviolent
