Projects

 

Nonviolent Global Liberation (NGL)

 

NGL is primarily an online community experimenting with embedding nonviolence into the core of its operational and relational infrastructure. NGL delivers offerings, currently in the form of coaching calls, to its supporters, called “NGL Friends”, and hosts week-long immersion events across the world. NGL is the heart of all that I do and is a project I have been a central part of since it was founded in 2017. Members collaborate to design systems that empower us to move together towards NGL’s purpose and values, operating entirely within the gift economy.

BayNVC

 

BayNVC is home to a number of projects and groups working under the same umbrella to apply and promote the principles and practices of Nonviolent Communication. I currently work within BayNVC both in support of refining their foundations and systems, and as Materials Point Person of The Fearless Heart.

 

Edinburgh Peace & Justice Centre

 

I have worked with the Peace and Justice Centre since 2017. Starting as a facilitator delivering the Cooperative Games and Conflict Resolution programme to Primary Schools in Edinburgh, the role developed into working with the whole team to clarify the purpose, values and systems. This formed part of remodelling the programme as “PeaceBuilders for Schools” and the offering within that called Collaborative Classrooms. Collaborative Classrooms works with children and teachers in their class to align their class agreements to the class intention / charter. PeaceBuilders assesses what is needed by the class to move them towards their intentions and offers targeted training to support them in getting there. You can read more about the programme and apply to become a facilitator at www.peaceandjustice.org.uk. I am currently working with the centre to refine it’s organisational foundations toward a near-future relaunch.
