Hathor Institute


Hathor is an international training institute created by Karin Ferfers. 
It has surrounded itself with a network of multilingual trainers sharing the same vision. 
Hathor Institute focusses on individuals, groups and organizations that consciously wish to improve the quality of their communication, their collaboration and their living/being with others and with oneself.

​Training and deepening “ Conscientious and Nonviolent Communication”

What we do

“Nonviolent communication”, Marshall Rosenberg’s body of thought, inspires all that we offer. Its inspiration allows us to make the difference we seek and constantly re-defines us. 
My international certificate in nonviolent communication is a strong impetus in spreading this body of thought, solidly connected to many others working worldwide in the same way. 

Open programs

A number of open programmes are offered each year. Everyone is free to participate.  The programmes are based on the model of M.Rosenberg. They each offer their own specific point of view.

Our training courses are aimed at teachers and management who want to learn the basic model of M.Rosenberg. With the intention of consciously thinking about their own style of communicating with pupils, parents and colleagues.

And much more…

We offer extra support for both the profit and the non-profit sector. This can even go as far as coaching ‘Behavioral Decisions’ within organisations.


Hathor is an international training institute, founded by Karin Ferfers.  It is supported by two multilingual trainers with the same vision.  The Hathor Institute focuses on people, groups and organisations who consciously want to improve the quality of their communication, their cooperation and their lives with themselves and others.

“Communicating without violence”, Marshall Rosenberg’s philosophy, is at the heart of our current offer. It is from this inspiration that we make the difference and that the institute continues to shape itself.

Our international certification in Nonviolent Communication is a strong support in the further spread of this philosophy. In connection with so many others around the world, who work from the same perspective.

Karin Ferfers

From a strong belief in the power of the universal language of needs, I pass on this philosophy of non-violent communication with constant enthusiasm. So that any intention for lasting dialogue translates into better cooperation on a daily basis, while at the same time forming a peaceful seed.

Godfrey Spencer

Godfrey Spencer’s passion is communication based on the needs, the deep aspirations of every human being. He is a consultant, trainer and speaker. He works for international organisations as well as groups and individuals. He believes in experiential learning. His love for people knows no boundaries – or hardly…..!

Our Project: SISP


“Communicating without violence’ seeks connection in the broadest sense of the word. M.Rosenberg asks everyone who is committed to propagating the ideas, to contribute effectively to a project that strives for ‘social change’. From the Hathor Institute I choose with conviction for the non-profit organisation S.I.S.P., a small-scale project that makes a difference! This is based on the commitment of some 35 people in the field, and many volunteers here in Flanders, who are constantly working to raise the necessary funds.

SISP focuses on the poorest of the poor and the people who have little or no opportunities in Indian society, especially some villages in Vizhinjam in the South Indian state of Kerala. SISP tries to improve the quality of life of these people by, among other things: free education, training in social resilience, setting up savings systems (microcredit associations), guidance and financial assistance for medical treatment, food and/or school fees. SISP works very closely with local aid workers and authorities. (www.sisp.be)

Good education gives young people opportunities. From a financial bridge between every educational guidance here from Hathor (workshop, refresher course, The safe class,….) and the “Free education centre” I want to take the project with me. In a mutual learning process, out of admiration and respect for every child and every adult who gives themselves opportunities to learn and grow. Here and in Kerala. A Dana scale (= giving from the heart) gives the participants in other courses the free space to contribute.
