AYEISH’s mission is to support political systems and leaders deepening in their capacity to transform conflict to solution, through connection between people.  AYEISH uses a mindfulness + Nonviolent Communication toolset to support people

  • identifying the core, shared human needs underneath their and others’ positions, strategies, and actions
  • mediating for a solution that works for everybody. Parties mediate their own conflicts!

AYEISH works primarily at the intersection of capacity-building (workshops, coaching) and strategy. AYEISH is collaborating with Syrian NGO WIAM on a peace and unification initiative, and has pilots to support leaders in the U.S., in Congo, and elsewhere.
