Barbara C. Wiebe, BEd, CPC


Barbara, Educator, Certified Life Coach, NVC Facilitator, long-time yoga and mindfulness practitioner, offers perspectives and tools that empower personal and social change. Inspired by her training in NVC, Nonviolent Communication, with the founder, Marshall B. Rosenberg, PhD, she has offered communication workshops, NVC practice groups and life coaching since 2006. Barbara is now immersing herself in cutting-edge, brain science approaches to healing trauma, supported by her mentor, Sarah Peyton, author of Your Resonant Self. Barbara enjoys sharing the journey of transforming ourselves, our relationships and the world we live in. 

Some key mentors over many years of her own journeying include Eckhart Tolle, J. Krishnamurti, and Byron Katie. Here are some quotes worth contemplating:

“All you need to is to be aware of your feelings and thoughts – as they happen. This is not really a ‘doing’ but an alert ‘seeing’ … the shift from thinking to awareness.” ~Eckhart Tolle

“Believing what you fear makes it true for you, and that doesn’t make it true.” ~Byron Katie

“Truth is found in the mirror of relationship.”  ~J. Krishnamurti

Barbara says: “The work I offer arises from faith in our capacity to bring compassionate warmth into our hearts and our relationships. I enjoy interactive approaches that cultivate attunement with our inner life, how to bring attention to our feelings, our unresolved hurts, our stories, our deepest longings… It is in the practice of embodied, relational mindfulness that we reclaim our humanity – and our intimacy with all life.
