"What I want in my life is compassion, a flow between myself and others based on a mutual giving from the heart." ~ Marshall B. Rosenberg
Marshall B. Rosenberg (born October 6, 1934) was a psychologist who founded the Center for Nonviolent Communication, which has provided training worldwide to help resolve differences peacefully—on a personal, professional, and political level. The center, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, emerged from his work with civil rights activists in the 1960s and from his experiences growing up in an inner-city Detroit neighborhood, where violence was not uncommon. His books include Nonviolent Communication, Raising Children Compassionately, and Speaking Peace.
