About the Bali IIT


How it all started

Bali IIT was initiated by Dorset Campbell-Ross (Australia) and Simone Anliker (Switzerland), two certified CNVC trainers with great love and affinity for Bali. Dorset had been coming to Bali yearly since 1970 as a teenager, and ever since he became a certified CNVC trainer he had frequently taught Nonviolent Communication to the locals and expats. He wanted NVC to spread in Indonesia. The first Bali IIT took place in 2017, with over 70 participants from over 25 nationalities, lead by an amazing trainer team: Dorset Campbell-Ross, Simone Anliker, Shari Elle (Australia), Robert Kržišnik (Slovenia). In 2018 Bali had the second Bali IIT and saw the return of trainers Dorset Campbell-Ross, Simone Anlker, Shari Elle with the addition of Jan Carel van Dorp (Holland), Liv Larsson (Sweden) which resulted in another resounding success. 2019 will be the third year for Bali IIT is conducted, led by Dorset Campbell-Ross, Sura Hart (USA), Carl Plesner (Denmark), Mukti Jarvis (Australia), Barbra Esher USA).

The atmosphere during the IIT felt gentle and warm-hearted to me, and the venue was particularly beautiful. I learned a lot during almost all of the NVC sessions and it felt like a truly global event. To me personally this was especially enriching because I could connect to participants and trainers from all parts of the world.

To me, the IIT was witnessing the embodiment of NVC... Power-with in a community, where needs and feelings can be expressed authentically. Being together for full 9 days, learning, eating and growing together is INTENSE! And there is also choice to take care of one own needs. Bali is a beautiful setting and I so enjoyed it. My family joined for half the time and I was so grateful that they could be present for a bit in a beautiful resort, as I was also needing connection with my husband and little children.

Bali IIT is unique because Bali is unique and is the most perfect setting for an IIT. It sets the stage for deeper work and lasting transformation more than in any other country just because it’s Bali. As a long time resident of Bali I have experienced many workshops and have seen the effects that this beautiful island and its amazing people have in workshops/trainings. The combination of NVC in Bali could not be more perfect. Experiencing NVC is key to understanding it and being able to embody and incorporate in daily life. You can read all the books, watch all the videos but it does not replace experiencing it. That’s what I discovered. Imagine reading all about yoga and watching all the videos but never taking a class??? NVC is also a practice and no better place to do it than in Bali. This IIT also gave me a chance to truly get close with some Indonesian nationals and many other nationalities because NVC is the common language without cultural boundaries. And this is a precious gift. I could literally go on for pages about the benefits of NVC, the importance of doing an IIT and the best place to do it is in Bali but will spare the reader with all the details. Just need to experience it for yourself. -- Val Burchert, Attorney (France/USA/Bali)

I can’t speak highly enough of the Bali IIT. Gathering together with so many likeminded people in 2017 & 2018 to pursue understanding and heart connection together was such a beautiful experience that anyone seeking growth in NVC competence and who is open to an amazing experience of tender compassionate connection and deep learnings and growth would find immensely satisfying.
With heartfelt appreciation for NVC & all the trainers and fellow participants, Rod from Australia

It's almost been a year since Bali IIIT and I remember it as if it was yesterday. What I learned and felt during those 10 days have remained with me. To say that it was an amazing experience would be a gross understatement. Bali IIT was one of the most important experiences of my life. I'm truly grateful to have been a part of it and will continue to "practice connection before correction" and "empathy before education".
