The MWS Podcast: Episode 4, Daren Dewitt

In this episode Daren Dewitt, a certified trainer with the centre for nonviolent communication talks about this integrative practice and how it can be a very effective technique for dealing with conflict both with others and ourselves. He explains the process involved especially in regard to feelings and needs and non judgement. He explores themes such as anger and appreciation and how NVC can arguably be seen as a way of breaking down dogmatic views about others (and ourselves). He also talks about how he got involved with NVC and the influence this has had on his own life.

Daren runs regular training sessions in London, see: He is very happy to answer any questions about the interview or NVC in the comments section should you have any.

About Barry Daniel

I live in the Lake District in the UK where I run a guesthouse with my partner Kate and my cat Manuel. I enjoy painting, hillwalking, reading, visiting and entertaining friends, T’ai Chi and playing the guitar. I’m engaged to a certain degree in the local community, as a volunteer with Samaritans and I’m a fairly active member of the local Green party. I’ve had a relatively intuitive sense of the Middle Way most of my adult life but it found a greater articulation and a practical direction through joining the society. It’s also been interesting and great fun engaging with other people with a similar outlook. My main contribution to the society is conducting the podcast interviews, something that gives me a lot of satisfaction and that I’ve learnt a lot from.
