About the Facilitator – Efrat Wolfson
I am originally from Israel,
and have been active in the Israeli-Palestinian peace movement
for the past 16 years
I’ve worked for nearly a decade as coordinator and facilitator of Palestinian-Israeli conflict& dialogue encounters for youth and adults
(mainly through the Windows For Peace NGO).
As an Israeli, I’ve always been baffled by the violence and conflict in which I grew up,
and I strived to find ways to make a difference.
Through many years of working with conflict groups,
I have gathered an array of amazing, transformative tools
from various traditions and teachers,
which I have woven together to form the NCT Program
exploring together practical, creative ways to transform conflicts.
I hold a Masters degree in Human Rights Education from Curtin University, Perth.And besides, I’m a mum of 2 little ones, who provide me with a myriad of with daily opportunities to practice my Conflict Transformation skills! 🙂
The training is designed to evolve and emerge through the needs and experience of the participants.

William, teacher, Melbourne
“The NVC strategies and other tools will be very useful with working with young people, plus an array of other tools that will work well in personal and professional life. 2 fantastic days of learning. What I found most profound was re-establishing a connection with myself on a physical and emotional level – something I did not anticipate but am truly grateful for!”
