Estelle Bessin, CNVC certified trainer
Some family facets
I'm 49, I live in Provence with my 18, 16 and 8 year old daughters, my partner and his 4 children.
I'm one of those researcher-parents, dreaming of life serving education. For instance, I learnt sign language for babies, or learnt Montessori pedagogy.
Finally, our family started 14 years ago to take part in creating a co-housing, both for ecological motivations and for social link.
And then, personal facets, through 3 movers of my curiosity
Second is for 9 years, I loved discovering chinese language and culture. A few months ago, a Beijing inhabitant came to one of my trainings. After a 16 year long break, I found myself dreaming of going back there for NVC.
Third is that I discovered transition town. I saw many links with NVC principles, for instance interdependence. And I loved the energy it gave me to dare contributing more widely to social change.
Some professional facets

Today, I'm yearning for combining NVC with all those facets of my life, contributing to create life serving systems in the following fields :
parenting and education
supporting people with handicap
networks of those who dream of and act for another world : co-housings and eco-villages, transition, and social and fair economy actors
town-planning, for creative preconcert
companies, mainly for quality process in order to see clients' complaints beautiful !
