With Thom Bond

As we humans have developed other technologies, the technology of compassion has been developed too. This 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 children. The work is challenging, at times confronting, and with perseverance, practice, focus, and dedication, it works.For the last 8 years this course has served more 19,000 participants from over 110 countries in 4 languages, making the skills of compassionate living available to anyone, regardless of time and money constraints. For eight years running, this course has proven to be “life-changing”, “fun” and “transformational” (check out the quotes below). 

Starts on June 19

What You Get in the Course

Weekly Messages

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. All weekly messages include:

  • A concept to learn
  • A story to illustrate the concept
  • Practices to integrate the concept into your life
  • Links to previous weeks, videos, exercises and more

Throughout 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 and differentiations.

Monthly Conferences

As part of the course, Thom hosts 12, monthly 1-1/2 hour conferences (which participants can join either via video conference or a telephone line) for the English speaking Community.

All conferences are recorded and may be listened to at any time throughout the course. Recording links are posted within the weekly messages for those who don’t attend or those who would like to review.

Carefully trained and supported Course Facilitators host the conferences where it is offered in other languages.

What People Are Saying


“If I gave appreciation for everything Thom Bond has contributed to me, I wouldn’t have time for anything else.”
— Marshall Rosenberg

“I 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 –

“It 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 life.”
— Mike M.

“Thom’s style as a teacher is one that is filled with personal stories and examples that are meaningful and thoughtful. He does not place himself above anyone else.”
— 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.
