Are you having “people problems”?

Are your “people problems” costing you  time, money, happiness, or health?


What if you understood what’s wrong and what you can do about it … that actually worked?

This acclaimed workshop distills key findings from Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment Theory, Somatics, NVC/Compassionate Communication, and Thriving Life principles into down-to-earth, powerful stories, experiential learning, and easy-to-understand tools you can take with you and immediately begin to use to resolve your people problems at home and at work.

Probably what you want is to be heard and understood. To have the other person be able to see your point of view. To be able to come to agreement without much confusion or struggle. To understand others’ choices and behavior.

To feel secure, relaxed, and confident that you’ll be considered, and things will go well between you.

And ideally, for you to really enjoy each other and feel great about your relationship, whether personal or professional.

Unfortunately, that kind of ease and flow and resonance can be pretty rare, even with those we care about most.


The truth is, we really haven’t had any idea what makes people tick, what creates or restores understanding or positive connection, or what’s going on when people say and do things that seem a little crazy to us.

Until now.How our "Broken Toes" Sabotage our Relationships


Thanks to key advances in our understanding about the brain, our nervous system, stress, and how all these affect human perception, behavior, and relationships, we now have genuinely effective answers to these questions.



This event has been acknowledged by veteran therapists, PhD Psychologists, CNVC Certified Trainers, business consultants, couples and singles, people dealing with anxiety or depression or reactivity, professionals struggling to fulfill their potential, and many others, as one of the most powerful and helpful they’ve ever seen, both personally and professionally.

My advisors keep encouraging me to charge $695 or more for this information.  But, I’m passionate about making it available to everyone who wants to experience the best that’s possible in our connections with each other.  This game-changing information is a powerful first step.


Bring the “people problems” you’re facing in your life and discover:

  • How You Can Finally Feel At Home … Being Human, and Being Around Other Humans
  • How to Keep Relationship Difficulties from Draining Your Time, Money, Happiness, or Health
  • Why We So Often Don’t Agree with Others about “What Happened,” and what you can do to resolve that
  • What Creates “Crazy” Behavior in us and others (because we ALL do it), why compassion is such an essential response, and how to minimize how often it happens and the damage it can cause
  • The 6 Different Brain States that we humans have, and what you can reasonably expect from yourself or others, when in each one of them (one of the most powerful tools you will ever use; perfect to take home to your kids, too!)
  • Why People Break Agreements without even seeming to care about the impact on us, and how you can prevent this
  • The #1 Sure-Fire Way To Make Things Worse (there’s about a 99% chance that you’re doing this)
  • How to Restore a Sense of Safety, Calm, and Choice when things aren’t going so well, right in the moment
  • Why Being Compassionate or Empathetic Doesn’t Always Help — and can even make things worse — and how to know when NOT to offer these
  • Why Pointing Out “The Facts” Doesn’t Always Help — and can even make things worse — and how to know when NOT to do this
  • The 3 Key Skills Required to Navigate Positive Connection with anyone
  • A 4-Step Guide to Effective Communication and Thriving Relationships that consistency creates genuine understanding, respect, peace, and thriving … and often makes our dearest connecting dreams come true   (NOTE: Although elements of NVC are part of all that I offer, this is not the same as NVC’s 4 steps)

Come join us for this illuminating, relief-bringing, empowering exploration.


In 4 hours, how you see and understand yourself and others will change forever … in ways that create remarkable new possibilities for SAFETY and THRIVING: responsive connection; genuine cooperation and satisfaction; getting things done (with quality); stable peace; and real, bone-deep happiness at home, at work, and in our neighborhoods, nation, and world.

“I felt connected to others in the same struggle, relief with the explanation
of what’s happening, and tools to find ways out of the red zone.” –R, Portland, OR USA


“[Vika’s] understanding and practice of NVC (including her integration of
brain science, NVC, and her Thriving Life principles) is so impressive,

I’ve integrated key elements of her approach into my own work.
