Dear all, There is a memorial in Eugene, Oregon for Marshall Rosenberg. (also one in Portland; link here: https://facebook.com/events/1532129047061473 .) I am 'creating' (but not hosting nor organizing) this event, in order to publicize the below memorial (in Eugene). ** If you plan to attend, please RSVP by emailing the group leaders ** , per their request below -- they have included an email with which to do so (details below for RSVP process). I (Joseph Herbert) am in no way associated with CNVC nor ORNCC nor this memorial service -- other than that I am hoping to attend (not guaranteed), and am inviting you to attend, if you would like.. ======================= " 5. Eugene, Salem, and Central Oregon A. The Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication (ORNCC) is sponsoring a free community gathering to celebrate the life and teachings of the founder of Nonviolent Communication Marshall Rosenberg, who died February 7, 2015. WHERE: St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 1300 Pearl St., Eugene 97401 WHEN: Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 7 to 9 pm (it will be rush-hour, so please allow extra time, incl. for parking, etc, if you are driving -- bicycling and/or Amtrak bus/train and * or local Eugene-area public transit are also efficient, sustainable, and lower-stress options than driving. If you must drive, perhaps carpool? (see Eugene's public transit website w/ all options, here: http://eugene-or.gov/index.aspx?NID=654 )) Dr. Rosenberg founded the Center for Nonviolent Communication (cnvc.org ) and for more than forty years traveled the world teaching the self-awareness and communication skills he developed. He changed the lives of many thousands of people, and left as part of his legacy teachers and groups of people learning and practicing the skills he developed that contribute to peace and compassion. People whose lives were enriched by Marshall’s teachings are invited to come together to celebrate Marshall and to acknowledge his contribution to their lives. This event will also be an opportunity for participants to join in creating a more engaged and active NVC community in the Eugene-Springfield area, dedicated to learning and spreading the teachings and consciousness of Compassionate Communication. ORNCC board members welcome co-founder Bryn Hazell and others from Bend who will share the experience of co-creating their NVC community in Central Oregon, which is celebrating more than ten years in existence. The Central Oregon team will participate in a discussion and planning session with the intention of inspiring and supporting a vibrant and sustainable NVC community in the Eugene-Springfield area. So that we can plan for the number of attendees, we would appreciate your contacting us at: secretary@orncc.net to let us know you plan to come. Join us in celebrating Marshall Rosenberg and helping to continue his work toward a more peaceful and alive world.
