Building Restorative Systems mentoring


The Conflict Transformation Weave has run the programme ‘Building Restorative Systems’ twice a year since 2018 – and it’s developed enormously in scope and depth since our first six week offering. People have told us many times that the content is really valuable – and also that they would like support as they encourage their groups and communities to embrace the idea of walking towards conflict. 

‘Mentoring for Building Restorative Systems’ is the result of this feedback. We want to support you in fanning the restorative flame. 

About the programme

This programme offers the opportunity to:

  • reflect deeply on your own relationship with conflict
  • deepen your understanding of what it takes to transform conflict
  • review what you’ve achieved so far and plan your next steps
  • strength your skills in supporting transformative conversations and groups
  • explore the implications of power and privilege in your circles
  • tap into the skills and experience of a supportive group.

Four sessions will be devoted to exploration, reflection and practical strategies. 

Alternating with those sessions will be three devoted exclusively to practice of:

  • specific micro-skills
  • mediations / supported conversations
  • hosting restorative circles

Is this for you?

In order for participants to get the greatest benefit from this programme and have some common understanding, we ask that you have experience in the form of one or other of the following*:

  • completion of one of our ‘Building Restorative Systems’ programmes
  • completion of another substantial training in restorative processes
  • considerable experience of working with NVC and conflict

*Please talk to us if you would like to join the programme but you’re unsure if your experience fits.


Seven x 2 hr sessions

What to do next

Please let us know your interest and we will inform you of the next opportunity.

Transforming Conflict – online – January 16th and 17th 2021

Due to Covid19, this Intermediate training will be online in 2 sessions:
Saturday 16th January 10am – 1pm
Sunday 17th January 10am – 1pm


Being online might not as enjoyable as being face to face, and there are also considerable challenges in relation to screen overwhelm and bodily well-being, and I will be making allowances for this.

In this standalone day of the London NVC Intermediate training, we will focus on NVC approaches to Transforming Conflict.

Conflict is inevitable. What matters is how we respond to it.

This session will enable you to:

  • feel more confident to communicate in conflict situations without blame, shame or judgement.
  • take  inner  steps to transform conflict
  • transform enemy images and humanise the other
  • intervene safely in situations of conflict
  • be more resourced in tense situations
  • stay grounded in empathic expression and empathic listening in tense situations

The session will involve reflection, discussion, practice and role play.
