Dear all, There is a memorial in Portland, Oregon for Marshall Rosenberg. (also one in Eugene, OR on April 9th; link here: https://facebook.com/events/376655132514254 ) I am 'creating' (but not hosting nor organizing) this event, in order to publicize the below memorial (in Portland). 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.. ======================= "A note from Joe Mitchell: A gathering to honor the life and work of Marshall Rosenberg will be held Saturday evening, February 28th at 7 PM at the Unity Church of Portland, 4525 SE. Stark St., 97215. You are invited to gather and celebrate the life and work of the founder of NVC. If you have something that you would like to share with the rest of the community please contact me at 503-233-2310 or jjmit@comcast.net. We are especially looking for someone to put together a video of Marshall's life.Also, it would be especially nice to have music to give tribute to Marshall's life and give expression to our mourning and celebrating.So if you have a desire to contribute a video presentation of Marshall's life, or musical tribute, please let me know. Also, help with setting up, taking down, and cleaning up would also be appreciated. If you are moved to volunteer in any of these areas, please give me a call. A donation basket will be passed to cover the cost of renting the Unity Sanctuary, the sound system,and other expenses for the Marshall's Memorial. Parking is available across the street to the north of Unity Church. We are looking forward to gathering to celebrate Marshall's legacy of life. With lots of love, Joe Mitchell, 503-233-2310, jjmit@comcast.net " -- from the ORNCC Feburary 2015 newsletter: http://us6.campaign-archive2.com/?u=818b438cffe7f66ffe54129ad&id=eaabcc9eeb ====== "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: Eugene, OR WHEN: Thursday, April 9, 2015 (details here: https://facebook.com/events/376655132514254 ) 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. Join us in celebrating Marshall Rosenberg and helping to continue his work toward a more peaceful and alive world. The ORNCC Board" ====== "Dear all, It is with great emotion that I write to tell you that Marshall Rosenberg passed from this life 3 days ago, on Saturday, February 7th. It was recently discovered that he had late stage prostate cancer. He passed peacefully at home, with his wife Valentina - who shared the news with me a few minutes ago - and all his children by his side. I know no way to describe the impact this man had on so many people - for his work and for his being, and for the extraordinary power the balance between these two unleashed. He was a beloved teacher to countless people on every continent, people whose hearts were touched and shone with the possibility his work made tangible. To many of you reading he was also an inspired and inspiring colleague who changed the course of your lives and brought an inestimable sense of meaning and the potential for transformation to every area of your world. And who, at each moment, did this with utmost simplicity, humility and humanness. In great mourning, and with the most profound reverence and soaring gratitude for the spirit he released in us, and whose light we carry forwards, Dominic Barter President, CNVC Board " http://www.facebook.com/events/1532129047061473/
