Explore a revolutionary approach to addressing conflict in a world that increasingly needs robust examples of courage, leadership and radical empathy. Kitchen table, boardroom or Monsanto, the time is upon us to hone the speech blade and rewrite the human narrative.

Indeed, our word weaving skills have consequence. We are ‘relational’ creatures and our ability to thrive and caretake depends on our ability to cultivate and nurture healthy connections. But what if the tools we’ve been given to manage differences only draws us deeper into the mire and adds yet even more distance between us and others? And what if the areas we focus on when trying to resolve conflict actually throw us off the scent of what’s really at stake and needs attention?

Radically shift your experience of relating and communicating with this dynamic, life honouring and boldly creative approach rooted in spiritual/emotional intelligence and ecological wisdom.

Language changes with the times, it always has. If you want to change the times, change the language…  change your conversation.

Rachelle Lamb is a speaker, writer, spiritual activist and ‘relationship whisperer’. For over two decades, she has worked in the field of interpersonal relating and conflict resolution employing wisdom and practices found studying cultural anthropology, spirituality, nonviolent communication (certified trainer 2003), social justice, activism, deep ecology, mythology, poetry and storytelling.
