Compassion Course" is the result of my last 27 years as a writer
and trainer, and the past 14 years, studying, living and teaching Nonviolent
Communication (NVC). It's my way of making the skills of compassionate
living available to anyone, regardless of time and money constraints.
The 2014 Compassion Course (that is in progress) has over 3,000 participants
from over 80 countries. For four years running, this course has
proven to be "life-changing", "fun" and "transformational"
(check out the quotes below).
weekly email messages, the course imparts concepts, stories and
practices that empower us to be more compassionate. We learn clear practices
that help us and those around us, have more understanding and well-being
in our lives (see sample weeks below). The lessons explain and demonstrate
ways of thinking, speaking and acting that allow us to get through
conflict without hurting or hating.
a global community, we share resouces including links and exercises,
message forums, conference calls and enjoy a sense of
connection and expanded learning while preserving personal space and
time. Our online resources includes multiple message boards, access
to archived messages, conference call recordings, documents, video content,
special exercise pages and more.
the same way that we humans have developed other technologies, the technology
of compassion has developed too. This course provides clear, specific
ideas and practices to help us experience more compassion, understanding,
harmony and fun. That said, it is challenging and calls on our
perseverance, practice, focus and dedication.
Through practical steps, the course provides the "how to"
of creating more connection, understanding and compassion in our daily
lives... a way to create a world we will be happy to leave our children's
It is my honor and dream to share this with you for a fifth year. I
hope you will join me.

The Course starts with foundational concepts and practices that help
us understand what engenders compassion and what blocks it. As the year
progresses, we work with more advanced practices and processes that
help us bring more compassion into our everyday lives.
the course we work on progressively deepening levels with self-empathy,
empathy, emotional triggers, anger, beliefs, dialog, appreciation, requests
and more. By the end of the year, the course covers over 50 concepts

I gave appreciation for everything Thom Bond has contributed to me,
I wouldnt have time for anything else.
-- Marshall Rosenberg
wholeheartedly endorse and will recommend The Compassion Course to anyone
who is new to NVC and to people who want to deepen and integrate the
skills and consciousness."
-- Robert Gonzales, CNVC Certified Trainer - living-compassion.org
has changed my life radically, I'm still amazed. Relationships that
were stuck in old patterns have become fluid, caring and loving. Perhaps,
at sixty-six, to find a new love with my husband, a warmth and closeness
with my children, it all seems like a miracle."
-- Compassion Course Participant
"Thom normalizes NVC. He shows it's possible to do in everyday

communicating, listening/responding to others, and shifting the ways
I think about my own feelings. I've had some big breakthroughs with
my partner using some of the language I've learned; and have been able
to see some intense feelings around my family as signals of needs I
can address in my own life. And this is just the beginning..."
-- Deb C.
style as teacher is one that is filled with personal stories and examples
that are meaningful and thoughtful. He does not place himself above
-- Elizabeth C.
"Wahhhhhh Thom! I thought introspective awareness was a specialty
I had received during 23 years of regular meditation and spiritual studies.
However, without this Compassion Course, I would have never discovered
alone, the depth of thinking regarding judgments. I have been trying
so many things to realize the ignorance of a judgmental attitude, but
the seed was still in me... just because I never experienced the Inner
Power and the Wisdom that comes from understanding needs."
-- 2012 Compassion Course Participant.
"Working with Thom has changed my life. Really."
-- Nellie B.
"I could take this
course for the rest of my life, and I might."
-- Barbara L.
