Barbara C. Wiebe, BEd, CPC      

Barbara with Foster Walker, her beloved life partner of 20 years.

Certified Professional Coach, NVC Facilitator, long-time mindfulness, meditation and yoga practitioner, Barbara blends her extensive training in Nonviolent Communication, NVC, together with her passion to share the journey of transforming ourselves, our relationships, and the world we live in. Barbara is currently an enthusiastic student of Interpersonal Neurobiology and trauma healing. 

Barbara says: “The work I offer arises from faith in our capacity to bring compassionate warmth into our hearts and into all aspects of our daily living. 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, inter-relational mindfulness that we reclaim our humanity – and our intimacy with all life.

Here are some quotes, my key mentors:

“Spirituality is at the base of Nonviolent Communication… it’s more than a communication process. It’s really a spiritual practice that I am trying to show as a way of life“  
~ Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg www.cnvc.org
“Bringing about peaceful change begins with working on our own mindsets,
on the way we view ourselves and others, on the way we get our needs met.”
 ~ Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg, founder of the Center for Nonviolent Communication, 

“The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives.”
~ Esther Perel, author, therapist, speaker  www.estherperel.com

It’s against our nature to be anything less than connected with people.
~Byron Katie, author, Loving What Is,  www.thework.org

“Our species is undergoing an unprecedented transformation. The determination to explore every aspect of consciousness, and to cultivate what contributes most to Life, is replacing the drive to bury painful emotions. This requires emotional awareness.”  ~ Gary Zukav and Linda Francis, The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness  www.seatofthesoul.com

“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   www.eckharttolle.com

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