In our 40-hour bootcamp-meets-bandcamp Basic Mediation Training, you’ll learn side by side with UN diplomats, teachers, actors, lawyers, homemakers, activists, cops, and more. It’s a deeply moving experience — for our trainees, and for us as well. I thought I’d toot our horn a bit and share some of our participants’ feedback. FYI, there are a couple slots left in our March 27-31 training in case you want to join New York City’s largest civilian peacebuilding force (us!)
It should be required training for every New Yorker.
The trainers do an excellent job. Even if people don’t want to go into mediation, it will help them grow personally.

You jam so much information down our throats, but it goes down like honey.

One of the most transformative experiences of my life.

The best training I’ve ever experienced, and I’ve been to hundreds.
It’s not giving up a weekend — it’s spending it with new friends who are smart, interesting, community-minded, while watching videos, talking, and learning.
