“I’ve known Mair for a decade as a friend, colleague and as a participant in some of my NVC Mediation workshops. I very much enjoy how she shows up in the world with humor, care and clarity. I like the way Mair relates to herself, and to me and others. I without reservation recommend that you work with her at every opportunity.” – Ike Lasater

The attachment is a letter from a man who, at the time, was incarcerated at San Quentin.
The quotes below are all from incarcerated persons:

“I went through anger management for 2 yrs. And I have to say in the short time since you took over the class, I have learned more about myself and how to respond in a situation than I did in 2 yrs. Your time is very valuable and I want you to know I am walking away with some life changing attitudes and communication skills. Thanks so much for being so commited to your lifes work.”

“…I enjoy spending the time in your class, you make things fun to learn them.”

“I really need your class and the skills you teach.”

“I am always learning something new-whether it’s a new topic or something new about myself.”

“I truely do enjoy you coming to teach all of us, and I love the way you express yourself thru your art, I think that’s what I like most about you, Mair…”

“First, I’m embarrassed to say that [before] every [class] I say, not NVC again. And every [class] I enjoy it. Where the dread comes from is a mystery to me. Each class I learn some thing new. Then there is the part, that on several occasions, I come to class, not in the best mind frame. Within ten minutes you’ve made me smile and that is a direct result of the kind [of] person you are. Your kind and gentle way is an amazing inspiration. We all can benefit from N.V.C.
