A message from John Kinyon, your guide through the Mediate Your Life App

Listen to a clip from the Introduction

“Mediate Your Life is based in the international work of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), created by Marshall Rosenberg, and integrates a mediation model, neuroscience, and mindfulness (dual and nondual). Nonviolent Communication and Mediate Your Life training have shown powerful and transformative results for decades around the world.”

John Kinyon, Creator of the Mediate Your Life App

Integrating communication conflict consciousness

The Approach

The Mediate Your Life approach offers “conversation maps” for navigating and transforming conflicts and difficulties in your life.

Observation, Feeling, Need, Request. These are communication components from the international work of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a universal language of the heart, a language of life. These components are the cellular-DNA of the conversation maps I offer you in this app.


What are they?

Conversation maps guide you through different regions and territories in the world of human conflict and challenges with other people and within yourself. The basic structure of the maps is from the field of mediation, where two opposing sides are supported in conversation by a “third side” of the mediator.

This app gives you the ability to take a third side perspective within yourself, to see what we share in common under our differences, and hold an opening for those differences to come together and integrate into new creative possibilities and solutions. It is the potential within all of us for mindful awareness and deep care and compassion that arises from perceiving a larger wholeness and feeling a space of connection, safety, and peace.

How does it work?

  • In terms of the general format, there are some introduction, overview, and theory audios, however in most of the audios I guide you through a meditative experience.
  • You can just relax and listen, allowing me to guide you to a place of feeling better and gaining new insights and ideas for how to respond to a challenging situation. 
  • The more you listen to the audios, the more you naturally learn and can apply the components, processes, and skills to situations in your life.


The mission, vision, and purpose of this app is to give people around the world the ability to use nonviolent communication to respond to the conflicts and challenges they are facing personally and collectively, so we can work together to create a just, healthy, and sustainable world with all life of the planet.

The vision of the app and its mission in the world is dedicated to our son Kabir [Sept 26, 1992 – Nov 29, 2022]. His life of service for social justice and his bold, passionate, and courageous spirit embodied this vision.

Thank you for being here, and for being part of humanity learning these kinds of skills and structures to be able to come together and work together to meet the challenges we face. 


Conflict is a natural and essential part of life. It’s how life works to create, grow, and evolve. This is the power of conflict, the ability to transform into new emergent possibilities for the life and world we imagine, in the big and small adversities of our lives, and in the larger societal polarities and great challenges of our time.


The purpose of a map is to help someone get to where they want to go. But when the terrain is entirely internal, having a map to help guide the way is even more useful. The maps John teaches have not only helped me successfully navigate myself through anger, shame, fear, guilt, and confusion, but also support others through their emotional challenges, deepening the sense of meaning and purpose in my life.

Before NVC and John’s training, I braced for life’s impact. After, I am trusting and curious, open to outcome. Before, frozen and frightened. After, confident and capable. Before, withered and weak. After, self-acknowledged and compassionate. There is not one part of my life that has not been impacted by Nonviolent Communication and John’s trainings, all parts touched with the privilege of learning and living these principles. A warmth of gratitude washes across my heart and a sense of sharp joy pricks in my throat as I lean into John’s essence and all he teaches.

Every time I asked for recommendations for NVC trainers to study with, John Kinyon’s name came up. Having experienced a lot of training with John, I’ve come to see why. He’s the real deal, who has put these skills to work in extreme situations. The training synthesizes many self-management skills to bring the spirit of NVC from a theoretical place to an internalized reality that is accessible when under stress or triggers. I highly recommend it, as these are skills that will make it much easier for you to deescalate and turn around conflicts in your life.

Working with John has been spiritually transformational. This form of communication is a spiritual language and practicing it with John allows for communication to come from the heart. It gives our souls the language it needs to express itself in a way that allows us to be the loving people we are.
