    • Experience the differences between avoidant, anxious and secure attachment

Peggy will use her 5 decades of teaching experience to help participants explore how they can build interactive and effective learning experiences to support everyone. We will weave resonance into all we do.

Sylvie Hörning, Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication, lives in Switzerland after having lived in different countries. Communicating with people has always fascinated her and conflicts stressed her.

Discovering Nonviolent Communication in 2006 was a gift for her. By practicing a lot, she has developed skills and integrated tools to connect at the heart level to address what comes up with authenticity. Now conflicts don’t seem quite so scary anymore.

Now as a trainer and assessor of NVC, she enjoys sharing her experience and accompanying individuals and families on their paths to discovering, integrating, living and/or sharing NVC from a space of connection.
