Peace work in Israel/Palestine
Working in partnership with Combatants for Peace, Holy Land Trust and other grass roots orgnaisations, Moving Conflicts leads workshops with Israelis and Palestinians to build and deepen relationships, to learn how to step into the shoes of the other and better understand how to humanize the enemy.
We create bridges between the inner activism needed to really transform the conflict and violence and joint non-violent direct actions taken by Israelis and Palestinians.
Moving Conflicts director, Ben Yeger, travels to Israel/Palestine twice a year and does traning in personal story telling, working with young people in both societies and supporting the work of all Peace activists in achieving inner resilence and sustainability in their efforts to bring about change in the region. Ben draws on his personal experiences as an ex combatnat in the Israeli Army(83-86) and his extensive therapeutic and group facilitation experience.
