Tropical Leaves


specializes in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) also called Compassionate Communication.

         Our focus is on transforming and healing                   ourselves, relationships, structures of                     oppression, and our home, the Earth.

"The primary purpose of Nonviolent Communication is to connect with other people in a way that enables giving to take place: compassionate giving. It’s compassionate in that our giving comes willingly from the heart. We are giving service to others and ourselves –not out of duty or obligation, not out of fear of punishment or hope for a reward, not out of guilt or shame, but for what I consider part of our nature. It’s in our nature to enjoy giving to one another.”


-Marshall B Rosenberg, Ph.D.

    Expressing anger fully as a path to true peace.

We are dangerous when we are not conscious of our responsibility for how we behave, think and feel.

Testimonial 01.

"Thank you for all the spectacularly life-enhancing workshops you, Barbra, have led and/or organized over the past year that I have been able to attend.  I cannot put into words how thrilled I am to be part of this community and to learn from everyone these ways of being that have given me hope again.You and the other facilitators, Chris!, have created a place that for me is safe, engaging, supportive, warm.  These events are life-saving for me - truly - as they provide me with real, genuine contact with people.  Otherwise, I am socially isolated. What a gift you and the other lovely facilitators have brought to life."
