It is my hope that you will support her in her efforts towards implementing social change." Warmly, Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D, Founder and Director of Educational Services, The Center for Nonviolent Communication (www.cnvc.org) July, 2005

Miki Kashtan: " I have known Mair since 2002, when she attended the BayNVC Leadership Program. I appreciate, in particular, her deep passion for meaning, her dedication to authenticity and full human connection, and her humor and courage in responding to challenges. I trust her understanding of NVC and her continued immersion in learning and clarifying concepts and processes. I am impressed by what I see as her ability to see and reach human beings across a wide range of demographics and experiences and offer meaningful healing and learning to others." - Miki Kashtan, Lead Trainer, Strategic Vision, Bay Area Nonviolent Communication (BayNVC) www.BayNVC.org

Bud Frutkin: I first met Mair Alight two years ago during a month-long NVC event involving daily phone calls and 40-50 people worldwide.  Different speakers would begin each call with a short presentation about some aspect of NVC, and we listeners would respond with our reflections and questions.  It was beautifully organized.  I met my first empathy buddy on those calls (not knowing before them what an “empathy buddy” even was).  And I met Mair on a daily basis because she was hosting the program.  I experienced directly her skills with the techniques of large conference calls.  I supposed also that she was doing the behind-the-scenes gathering of NVC talent, with all the hassles of scheduling in the face of international time zones and very busy people.  But I was most delighted by how Mair handled the personal sensitivities and little flare-ups that occur when you bring highly skilled people (among both speakers and listeners) together with neophytes and NVC dummies like myself.  I admired, really admired, how she channeled the energy flows--often at tsunami level, sometimes barely moving—into nurturing and often magical new directions.  She did this with some magic wand of the mind and with her chuckling, bubbling humor, which I love.  And the best gift of all:  she made you aware you could have your own magic NVC wand too, if you wanted it.  And were willing to listen, really listen; and to practice, really practice; and to laugh, really laugh. -
