OUR STORY

We share a common world view and passions and a very divergent past. Larry grew up in rural Illinois on a farm.  Lydia in the projects in the South Bronx.

 

Larry ...

Larry's father died in an accident when he was only 3 months old.  He, his mother and siblings moved in with his maternal grandparents.  He remembers a loving mother and grandfather and although they had a meager existence he feels quite privileged and did not want for anything. 

Lydia ...

Coming of age ...

We both came of age in the tumultuous 60s, during the civil rights movement, the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Malcom X, the Vietnam War, Kent State; Watts, Harlem, Detriot riots to name a few.  During a period of increased crime and homicides that lasted into the early 90s. The violence and discord left an indelible mark on each of us.  We crave peace, harmony, human rights and valuation of all human beings.

Finding each other ...

Larry had been going through a period where he felt overwhelmed about the prospect of entering into a committed relationship.  After attending his first NVC training weekend he realized he had needs for companionship, love, intimacy and wanted to partner and share his life with someone special.  He joined a dating site. He read through many a profile, had a few dates but no real connection.  NVC helped him through this period as he never got discouraged and kept in touch with his underlying needs for fun, companionship and love.  Then one day, Lydia during a break from studying read Larry's profile ...

Larry introduced Lydia to NVC.  Out first training was on Social Justice, a 7 day intensive workshop.

How we use NVC ...

We never go a day without appreciating how blessed we are for meeting each other and being introduced to NVC.
