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 asEfrat for brochure high res coordinator and facilitator of Palestinian-Israeli conflict& dialogue encounters for youth and adults
As an Israeli, I’ve always been baffled by the violence and conflict in which I grew up, and strived to find ways to make a difference.
Through  many years of working with conflict groups, as well as working through extreme conflicts in my own personal life,
I have gathered an array of amazing, transformative tools
from various traditions and teachers,
which I have woven together to support people to transform conflicts into amazing opportunities for positive change and connection with themselves and others.
I now live in Mullumbimby, NSW and I work nationwide with schools, communities and the general public.
I’m a mum of 2 little ones, who provide me  with a myriad of with daily opportunities to practice my Conflict Transformation skills! :-)

What past participants are saying: 

 “The course has caused great shifts in me that are still unfolding..I’ve found it truly life-changing!” – Hedonna Thurger from the Gold Coast shares the transformation she has experienced thanks to the training: 


“The course gave me a lot of tools to be able to deal with conflicts, to have the confidence and be able to speak up for my opinions, my needs and my feelings”  – Elias Johnson shares about the changes in his life after participating in the training:


 “If you’re having difficulties to deal with your inner peace or troubled with what is going on around you or maybe around the world and the conflict within yourself or with others, this is the workshop that will open the door for you and give you some tools to deal on a daily basis in life. Efrat has the ability, knowledge and the experience, She also has a good heart that invites the participant to share their stories. She listens and helps if you are stuck in some of the situations.” 

– Rima, Community Leader & Facilitator, Brisbane, Australia

Excellent. Sensitive, Nurturing, Inspiring. Brilliant holding of space. Just the right amount of knowledge/content and process balance – Keep up the great work!” 

– Farid Hamid, Diversity Trainer and Consultant, Ballarat, Australia

Efrat’s great! patient, supportive, challenging, focused, flexible, knowledgeable, skilled, kind and funny. I would definitely recommend working with her – it is enjoyable, offering authentic learning plus valuable skills and knowledge .”

– Melissa, Teacher, Melbourne

This training is very helpful because I can use nonviolence to help me out when I meet violence on the streets. I learned how to change the way I speak, and think. Everything we learned was great and important, and I can use it in difficult situations, for example, applying “needs not strategies”.  Efrat’s teaching was excellent and awesome,and she engages us better with remarks that help us understand well. I would recommend this training very much for our youth today in our community. It’s very important for our people to understand the importance of NVC training, to help themselves and the community in general. I wish you expand this training to more communities here in Australia!” 

– Deng, Santino, Front Line Team Leader, Melbourne, Australia.
