But with enough support we can get close enough to take the danger out of conflict\, and even to see its hidden potential to bring about what we want most. Conflict points to unmet needs\, in ourselves and in our communities. In restorative systems\, we focus on meeting those needs\, discovering where harm has been done\, repairing what can be repaired\, and rebuilding connection. The systems we design together are like homes within which conflict can live among us safely — and maybe even help us thrive. \n\nKey outcomes of this workshop:\n\nIdentify a dialogical system and learn how to spot one in the wild\nKnow the three questions to ask as you design your own conflict system\nFind out how your existing conflict system can work even better\nDiscover the five preconditions for a strong restorative system\nConsider how to get the support you need to engage with conflict\n\n\n\nREGISTER NOW\n\n\n\n\n\nWorkshop Presenter\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAlyson Ewald \nAlyson works with individuals and groups to design systems and practices that facilitate learning\, connection\, creative conflict engagement\, and collaborative decision making. She is the facilitator for the social dimension of the online Design for Sustainability course hosted by Gaia Education. She has received training and experience in English teaching\, Permaculture\, Alternatives to Violence\, Nonviolent Communication\, Consensus Facilitation\, and Restorative Circles. She has also served as board member for Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage\, Scotland County Farmers’ Market\, and FIC. She is an avid student of governance\, conflict\, and justice. \n \nAfter receiving her BA in English from Bates College\, Alyson lived and worked overseas for nine years. During that time\, she taught English; coordinated exchange programs; led workshops on consensus\, nonviolence\, and facilitation; and founded and taught a leadership and skill-building program. In 2005\, she co-founded Red Earth Farms\, a community in northeast Missouri\, where she continues to practice permaculture and social transformation. \n \n\n\n\n\n\nRegistration\n \n \n \n\n \n \n \n\n\n \n Workshop — Learning from Conflict with Restorative SystemsStarting From $10.00 \n\n Date: May 18th \nTime: 2-4pm EST (see your local time) \nSelect a donation level below to register. \nYou’ll receive an email about how to join on Zoom (please check your spam folder).
