From early teenage years I have been inquiring into the questions of meaning of life, the nature of existence and the ways of meeting each other at the heart level. The journey led me through studying Psychology, working as a psychotherapist for 12 years, and working as a trainer, facilitator for over 32 years, covering areas from spiritual retreats to business trainings. Within the context of NVC I am most passionate about its spiritual and embodied dimensions and about conflict mediation. Besides NVC, most important explorations on my journey have so far been Soto Zen, Art of Hosting, Bohmian Dialogue,Contact Improvisation...

Sabine Geiger has been leading workshops all over the world for 30 years, supporting people on their path to freedom and choice. Sabine came into contact with NVC in 1998 and started teaching soon after. As a certified trainer and assessor, she promotes a community-based certification approach.
To Sabine, NVC is a journey of the Heart: ”When I crossed paths with Marshall Rosenberg in 1998, I was amazed. How could he describe my inner processes so accurately, without ever meeting me? The empathic, curious and open heart has always seemed natural to me. Discovering NVC and passing it on to others has immensely enriched my life.”
Since Sabine recognized conflict as an invitation to learn more about others, restorative approaches have become an integral part of her teaching. Another focus of Sabine’s work is on community. We all live in one, so how about exploring ways to make them work? Sabine supports people to set up communities and make them flourish.
Her passion? Tapping into the wisdom of the body. She follows the framework of the NVC process to explore body sensations and link them to feelings & needs. To Sabine, this is a never-ending journey. You are kindly invited to join.

My focus lies on the Embodiment part of NVC- on Radical Honesty/Radical Empathy. My whole being is focused on my relation to people, while my teaching navigates in the subtle delicacy of figuring out ‘what (the fuck) is going on between and within people’ moment by moment by moment.

In this presentation I'll look at the political dimension and explore how the mindset and strategies of this formula actually intensify our present political disease. Thus understand, a path to healing becomes visible, that starts with the question, "What is it like to be you?""
