  • Profile

    NE Council Collective is a growing body of Council trainers and Council facilitators in the New England area. We serve individuals, groups and organizations seeking to learn more about Council and to seed Council practices in and for the human and more-than-human worlds. Currently based in Putney, Vermont where certified Council trainers Paul LeVasseur and Bonnie Mennell have been offering Council since 1996, we network with other Council trainers and facilitators in the New England and New York area and other centers of council including the Ojai Foundation, Center for Council and School of Lost Borders. We offer frequent Council trainings at SIT Graduate Institute (School for International Training) and Marlboro College. We also offer specialized trainings upon request. Trainings have served Clark University, Windhorse Integrative Health, Zen Peacemakers and Vermont Adult Learning. Community groups and schools in the local area often ask us to facilitate council sessions either as a one-time event or on an on-going basis. Kirstin Edelglass has recently joined us having completed the Trainers Mentoring Circle Trainer’s Path. Kirstin brings years of experience working with youth groups, wilderness programs and Joanna Macy’s “Work that Reconnects”.
