6:30-6:45 Gather and arrive together
6:45-8:30 Refresher and practice, followed by time to connect
We’ve been looking for opportunities for past participants in our online Nonviolent Communication workshops to gather in person to build connections and deepen their conflict resilience practices. To that end, we are inviting all alumni to our first Navigating Conflict Mixer!
This event is designed to be a social gathering with a Nonviolent Communication (NVC) practice and refresher built in. Nicole Bauman, one of our NVC partners, will be present to facilitate, so this is also a rare chance to connect with them in person!
This offering is intended for anyone who has participated in any of our Nonviolent Communication workshop series. If there are one or two people who you think would resonate with this work, we encourage you to invite them to join you. We also welcome those who have worked or have considered working with Nicole, or have an interest in taking a future Navigating Conflict class.
Refreshments will be served.
This offering will be facilitated by Nicole Bauman and GWI workers

They see building conflict resiliency as an essential part of living into the world to come, and are passionate about creating space where personal and collective liberation feel possible. As the descendant of white Western European peasant farmers who carried their trauma with them to the Americas, Nicole is committed to centering racial justice and ancestral healing in their work. Nicole’s background in farming, yoga, doula work and natural building grounds their work in connection to the earth and the body. Nicole is an ICF-certified Professional and Community Healing-Centered Coach and a student of Somatics with the Strozzi Institute and in the lineage of generative somatics. Nicole finds rootedness in growing food, daily walks to the river, weaving willow baskets,s and through being a part of the Prairie Wolf Collective co-housing community in the Rust Belt city of Elkhart, Indiana (occupied Potawatomi territory).
