“After experiencing the transformation NVC has brought to my life, I feel called to share the wisdom of this process as widely as possible.”

Susan Clarke has been studying Non Violent Communication™ (NVC) for several years with Cate Crombie in Brisbane, at the New York Intensive in 2012 with Kit Miller, Roxy Manning and Liv Larsson, and is currently participating in the two-year LIFE Program with Robert Gonzales.  She has completed training in dispute resolution with LEADR and in NVC mediation with Liv Larsson from Sweden.

In 2011, she completed crisis support training with Lifeline and spent twelve months as a telephone crisis support volunteer in Brisbane.

She has facilitated workshops in Compassionate Communication for telephone support volunteers with various organisations, for people of faith and social workers in Melbourne and Canberra, and at the Silver Wattle Quaker Centre near Canberra.

Susan has a Masters degree in Education from the University of Missouri, Columbia and is a skilled facilitator, having presented at national and state conferences in music education.

As a Quaker, Susan is committed to living the Peace Testimony in daily life and enjoys sharing strategies for non-violence to create a more peaceful world at a personal and community level. She has studied the Enneagram, Self Compassion, Compassionate Listening and other strategies for growing in self-awareness and peaceful ways of being.  She is resident at the Silver Wattle Quaker Centre on the edge of Weereewa (Lake George), a source of connection, inspiration and beauty.
