Join Sarah Peyton as she interviews her most important and beloved teacher, Susan Skye.
This will be a free opportunity for people to get to meet Susan, who studied directly with Marshall Rosenberg and then took NVC into the world of neuroscience research and began using time travel to heal emotional trauma.
Sarah will ask about Susan’s journey through a study of dianetics, her early experience of NVC, how she put things together to leverage neuroscience for the healing of trauma, and what her experiences have been. Sarah will speak with Susan on Zoom for 1 hour and 15 minutes and then we’ll open for 15 minutes of Q&A.
Please join us for this historic celebration of one of the titans of NVC healing.
