Weekly Practice Group – Online and Ongoing.

The purpose of this weekly online practice group is to support you to integrate the NVC skills you have learnt at a Foundation Training, and more advanced trainings, into your life and all of your everyday relationships.

It is for people who have attended the equivalent of a 2 Day NVC Foundation Training* or beyond, and is a weekly group with highly experienced trainers, and structured support.  It is conducted on-line live, over zoom, with a specific topic each week.

There are 3 packages you can choose from:

  1. A single practice group $35
  2. 3 Month unlimited pass $195 (value $455)
  3. A 12 Month unlimited pass $495 (value $1820)

All amounts include GST.

Each evening is stand alone and not dependent upon you attending previous practice group evenings.

We invite you to come and experience the “single evening” to decide if you want to join the 3 monthly or yearly membership.

Access to the zoom link for this training will be forwarded to you on registration.

Note – Please join us 5 minutes before the call.  We start each evening promptly at 7pm and doors will be closed at 7.03 pm.  This supports focus and presence in the group.  No refunds are available.  Trainings are run by zoom.  There are no refunds.


As we are doing small group work in breakout rooms, we want the peace of mind that everyone has previously learnt the same base skills that are in an NVC Foundation Training.  That way we have some reassurance that everyone will have access to mutual support in small group work.  We therefore request that each person in the Practice Group has attended the equivalent of a 2 Day NVC Foundation Training.  As part of joining us in the practice group, you may want to reinvigorate your basic NVC knowledge by

  • Reading Marshalls book Nonviolent Communication – A Language of Life.
  • Resitting a Foundation Training with Shari or another NVC Trainer
  • Watching NVC YouTube’s
  • Or attending advanced NVC trainings.

If you have done a Foundation Training with Shari Elle you can do a refresher for half price For dates and registration go to www.communicationgroup.com.au and use the code Resit.

If you book into one of the advanced trainings you can attend join the Practice Group as our guest until the beginning of the training.  Just email Shari on shari@communicationgroup.com.au to request this.

Trainers Hosting the Practice Group:

Our main trainer hosting this regular practice group is Sharon Rallings.

Sharon has been actively involved in NVC for over 17 years and has been a core member of the Communication Group team for more than 5 years.  She runs Foundation Trainings, practice groups and is a support trainer in the 6 month Peer Leadership Program.  Sharon is also one of the people Shari Elle regularly turns to for personal NVC support. She lives NVC and uses it every day in her personal life and is in her final stages of becoming an NVC Certified Trainer.

Other trainers for the Practice Group may include Shari Elle, and Alex Norman.   We may also have guest trainers on specific topics.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I still join if can’t remember the content of the NVC Foundation Training?

Yes.  We trust that what you learnt will come back to you once you come to the practice group.  However, to support those in your group, we request that you refresh your NVC skills by reviewing your workbook notes, reading the book “Nonviolent Communication, A Language of Life” by Dr Marshall Rosenberg, and we also suggest you resit a Foundation Training.

Q: Can I join if I’m struggling to use the principles of NVC in my everyday life? 

Yes. Absolutely this is the purpose of the practice group. To support the embodiment of what you have learnt. To build capacity for everyday access to this consciousness.

Q: Do you record the sessions?

Yes. The teaching part of the session is recorded and may be available in the future to purchase as a separate compilation product.  However, the recordings will not be provided to participants.

Information which is of a private nature (as distinct from general questions) will not be included in the recordings unless the person is the main demonstration for the activity (we will check with you first before recording you).

Q: If I buy a single session, can I upgrade to the 3 month program?

Yes.  Lots of people try out a single session, then upgrade to the full program.  You can do this at any time and the cost of a single practice night and a 13 week practice package makes it cost effective to do this.  If you upgrade, we do not refund the single session previously purchased.

Q:  If I am in the 6 Month Peer Leadership Program (PLP), can I still attend the Practice Group?

Yes! Many people in the program enjoy the additional practice of NVC in the Practice Group.  It is included as a bonus offer when you join the Peer Leadership Program.  Also, from the time you register for the PLP you are welcome to commence coming to the Practice Group to keep NVC fresh in your life.

Q: What is the difference between the Practice Group and the 6 Month Peer Leadership Program?

The Peer Leadership Program is for people who are committed to step into fully embodying the skills and awareness of NVC.  It is a commitment, not just to yourself, but to support the others in the group.  It is also highly mentored for the period of the 6 months.  The Practice Group is a regular support group to keep NVC alive and practice the skills of NVC.  The former is a deep committed immersion.  The latter is clarifying and supportive.  The biggest difference is the depth of training and commitment. Some people also do not have the financial resources at this time to join the PLP, and the Practice Group is a wonderful alternative. If you are wanting to deeply integrate and build these skills in the shortest time possible, the Peer Leadership Program is the best program.

We look forward to welcoming you!!!
Shari, Sharon and the Communication Group Team.

Have you wanted to really live NVC in your life – with care, authenticity, and power – as well as in all your relationships?

Do you want more clarity around the skills and how to apply the different paradigms of NVC?

Have you considered sharing this work with others, formally or informally, and would like mentorship, acceleration, and confidence in developing your skills?

Would you like this simple self-awareness and authenticity that NVC brings in all your relationships?

Would you like to step into your authentic leadership in your workplace or profession, to encourage the care, safety and trust that NVC brings?

If so, then the 6 month International Peer Leadership and Mentoring Program in Australia may be what you have been hoping for.



  • Weekend Trainings – 3 x 2 day weekend peer leadership trainings (online) with the full group, led by certified trainer Shari Elle. We will cover the understanding and practical application of NVC at a deeper level than is normally shared during a regular NVC training (including Embodying NVC). It also provides the space to practically “live NVC” with each other. Group members may lead segments of training.
  • Fortnightly Live Trainings – Fortnightly 2 hour zoom calls, learning and practicing the NVC skills and principles and sharing our individual learning. This call is led by a certified trainer (usually Shari). These calls are recorded.
  • Mentoring by Shari – Shari will be working closely with each person over the 6 months and offering personalised guided feedback every step of the way.
  • One on one access to Shari – You will have direct access to Shari by short call, text or email, with questions, celebrations, or anything else you need.
  • Pods – You will be in a Pod of 3-5 people through the duration of the program and these pods will meet monthly with Shari for one hour. It is a time for questions, tracking how each member is going against their objectives, and to ask for any support you may need.
  • Empathy and Support Buddy (optional) – Empathy buddies are available from within your pod to practice the exercises, exchange empathy, and get honest feedback. This accelerates learning through increased practice and feedback.
  • Peer support group – We are all actively supportive of each person growing and developing in the group. We are there in service of each other.
  • Private Support Group – There is a private online group just for our participants, where you can share celebrations and learnings, and ask questions of the group and Shari and Sharon.
