Five finds of the fortnight: Edition 38
Remembering Robert Maoz Kržišnik
If you’ve attended online NVC events in the past couple of years, you may have been familiar with Robert Kržišnik—NVC trainer, facilitator, team coach, counselor…
Robert passed away in a car accident a couple of days ago. The global NVC community is grieving this sudden loss.
Here is message from CNVC’s board on Robert’s passing:
We bring you very sad news from the CNVC community -- one of our colleagues, Robert Maoz Kržišnik died in a car accident on Tue, 30-Aug-2022.
We are grieving Robert’s death and appreciating the contributions that he made to many people and communities throughout his life as a counselor, trainer, friend, father, and Certified Trainer with CNVC since 2012.
If you want to learn more about Robert and his contributions, you can visit his website -- where he recently announced the release of his course, Landing Fully into Life -- or his Ted Talk, “On personal growth and stripping naked.”
For any of you who cared about Robert or were touched by his work, we hold you with care and join you in mourning the loss of our friend and colleague.
Farrah Baut-Carlier, Board President
Jeff Brown, Executive Director
~ and on behalf of the CNVC Board of Directors
I share this information with sadness for the loss, and gratitude for the learning and inspiration I’ve received from him.

4. Video of the fortnight
This fortnight’s video is a TEDx talk by Robert Kržišnik on personal growth, with a glimpse of his clarity, depth and humour.
“The world can only be saved if we dare to strip naked and interact with each other from the place of vulnerability.”
“I don’t want to waste my life on trying to stay safe. I think I want to engage. I want to stand in the fire of life and fully, directly experience it.”
“Nonviolent Communication for me is about a profound, intimate journey.”
5. Upcoming event alert
The first Living Bridges workshop of the quarter is this weekend and addresses the foundation of Nonviolent Communication and self-compassion practices: self-empathy.
Self-empathy can help us turn towards our own experience with warmth and compassion. And this capacity to witnessing our own experience can lead us towards more clarity and choice.
Join Irmtraud Kauschat’s workshop on self empathy this weekend (5-7.15PM) to learn how you can begin building this capacity.
