Coaching, Facilitating & Training
Carcross/Tagish First Nation
Honoured to be facilitating a four-month learning journey of peacemaking with Carcross/Tagish First Nation in the Yukon.
Participants gather in person while Dr. Evelyn Zellerer connects virtually. Inspired by this amazing group and self-governing Indigenous Nation.
Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada
A productive, encouraging day spent with Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Dr. Evelyn Zellerer facilitated staff in relationship and team building, with a focus on identifying guiding shared values. It was a joy to work with graphic recorder Michelle Buchho, Cassyex Consulting.

Building Partnerships for Restorative Justice
Months of extensive outreach led to our first stakeholders meeting in April for “Building Partnerships for Restorative Justice in Vancouver”.
Bringing together diverse representatives, including City Councillors, Black Lives Matter, police, Indigenous leaders, victim services, court, interfaith, LGBTQ+ and many more. The introduction round was inspiring!
Coordinated by Dr Evelyn Zellerer, Catherine Bargen and Aaron Lyons. We partnered with Just Outcomes to receive a grant through Civil Forfeiture Funds from the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General BC.
This exciting, challenging work continues on unceded, traditional xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territory.
What a gift to be back with Brazil!
Over 100 participants joined a webinar as part of an advanced course for facilitators. We appreciate the invitation for Dr. Evelyn Zellerer to contribute.
Impressed by participants – judges, lawyers, teachers, psychologists, mediators and more – implementing restorative practices and peace circles, including in courts.
Thanking coordinators Leoberto Brancher, Afonso Konzen, and translator Fátima De Bastiani. Hosted by Association of Judges of Rio Grande Do Sul – AJURIS – Associação dos Juízes do RS, por meio da Escola Superior Da Magistratura (ESM) – Escola da AJURIS.
We receive requests to facilitate a variety of situations, some involving harm. We also have a few special clients for one-on-one sessions.
For example, one case involved a breach by a therapist with a client.
Acknowledging the courage to engage in deeper conversations and change.
“Most skillful facilitation I’ve ever seen.
You set the bar way out beyond the stratosphere.”
While we don’t offer therapy, our processes can be therapeutic and transformative.
