    Attendance: Rick, Lisa
      This was a meeting of much juice, richness and excitement.
      • Rick's trust in ebb and flow and manifestation or NVC growth and fruition
      • Excitement around the possibilities of the NVC Trainer Support Organization, and movement
      • Rick's living NVC in rich learning exchange between teachers and students, embracing political differences, creating shared value placards and bringing the life of NVC to war protestors, and the initial formation of NVC energy in Pittsburg
      • Lisa's longing for NVC community members to have commitment to living NVC through embracing conflict/tension between themselves as opportunities, and working it through to live peace making, healing and organic solutions, and taking the opportunity, herself, to commit to such transparency and commitment within co-facilitation and one-on-one relationships {one of which blossomed, through commitment to and use of NVC, into warmth/friendship from a beginning of grating and tension}
      • Reminder: wanting what we do to come from what we're passionate about and have energy for
