Conflict can feel scary and destructive but having the right tools and skills will bring new possibilities. Conflict is how life has evolved on our planet, it's how we create the world we imagine.

- John Kinyon Co-Founder of Mediate Your Life

John Kinyon is one of our trainers of Nonviolent Communication and someone in whom I have a great deal of trust and confidence. John, in my experience has a special gift for facilitating empathic understanding and communication between people. I highly endorse John's skills and abilities with Nonviolent Communication, and I strongly recommend him to anyone needing help resolving a conflict situation.

I’m so grateful for the work John has done with my staff and me over the past 4 years. I want to thank John for how he helped me turn around the difficulties I was experiencing with my employees and create a new level of success in my business.

John has contributed to these things by how he coached me to communicate differently and model the qualities and ways of relating that I wanted to see with my staff.

John has a great ability to support people being honest and authentic with each other in ways that bring them together. John has helped us communicate and resolve conflicts in a way that everyone felt heard and understood that then led to finding mutually satisfying solutions. Particularly helpful was when he mediated between two employees with long standing and complex problems - it was truly amazing to watch as they found the common ground of understanding and found the basis for being able to work together again with a growing sense of respect and mutuality.

— Suzan Steinberg, Business Owner

I highly recommend John Kinyon. In my session with him I had a wonderful healing and gained great relief. John gave me unconditional kindness and empathy. I gained compassion for my former spouse and the pain she suffered since childhood. I also gained compassion for myself, and I was able to become aware of my triggers and my part in the problems in our relationship. After the session, I felt like there had been chains holding me down, and now they were cut and I was free. That shift inside me led me to email my former spouse. She responded to me and we connected for the first time in 45 years! We had some resolution of our issues around our divorce many years ago. That resolution has affected our children and has brought relief and peace to the whole family.
