L’aura Joy is a Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication (CNVC, USA), and since 2007 she has been working in the fields of communication, conflict resolution, peace and justice, healing, and decision-making and leadership. L’aura has been a pioneer in bringing NVC to India and has supported an ever-growing community to emerge.
Having grown up in Auroville, an international intentional community in Tamil Nadu, India, L’aura is passionate about exploring how we can live our lives in empowered and co-creative ways. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers such a clear, yet deeply powerful and transformative framework within which to explore both our inner realities as well as outer relationships. In addition to NVC, L’aura is also trained in Restorative Circles and Sociocracy, and she applies these approaches to her work with justice and governance in Auroville.
L’aura runs Joy Living Learning in Auroville.
