Aotearoa-NZ trainers community mourns the passing of our dear friend Scott Mieras

Posted on July 4, 2017

Dear NVC Community,

It is with deep sadness that our NVC Community farewells our friend Scott Mieras.  Scott’s love of serving life, in so many ways, has touched the hearts of all of us.  It feels like a great loss without the shining Light that was Scott, and it is a comfort to know that his Light has touched so many and continues to shine on through each of us, in all the ways we are more loving for having had him in our life and so strongly a part of our community.

I know for me (Deb), and I am sure for many others, that it was a shock to hear of Scott’s passing. For the days afterwards, I wondered if it was indeed real. When I think of Scott, the first thing that springs to mind is community.  Anna recently posted a picture on our NVC Facebook page of a group of us & Scott at our Trainers Gathering in 2013. That gathering sits with me until this day as I remember Scott’s request to be held and supported while at that gathering and how we all gathered around him to meet that request.

 I know that many of you are aware of how much Scott supports others through his healing work, through NVC and through just who he is, so it was such a gift to be requested to do the same. We would like to express on behalf of the NVCANZ Charitable Trust and our NVC community, our deep condolences to Scott’s family. We acknowledge Scott for the work that he contributed to our community through the NVCANZ Charitable Trust as Secretary, and for his friendship, wisdom and guidance as we took on working in a Sociocratic way. 

It was important for Scott that all voices were heard and that we all mattered. Scott, you will remain in our hearts as we continue the work of sharing NVC with others. You will sit in circle with us, you will be alongside us and we feel deeply grateful for your presence in our lives.


Arohanui Scott,

Deb Hipperson, Filipa Hope, Phil Toms
