It’s our mission here at Taming the Wolf to offer training in Franciscan peacemaking. Our goal is to put a Franciscan peacemaker in every parish.
Training in basic Franciscan peacemaking and faith-based conflict resolution skills is an essential part of our ministry. Browse our video tutorials to study the basics or call us to arrange a talk or workshop. We also offer mediation and consulting for those who are need of a neutral third party to mediate difficult disputes.
The Assisi Option
This proposal calls for the creation of Spiritual Direction Centers where laity can prepare for public ministry by engaging in spiritual hermitage. Participants will experience and train in three core disciplines — faith-based mediation, pastoral counseling, and spiritual direction. The proposal honors the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi.
Talks & Workshops
Arrange a presentation for your group – for a parish event, staff training, school gathering, or other community association. The following sample topics can be modified to address your particular needs.
Mediation & Consulting
Taming the Wolf Institute offers mediation designed to resolve a wide range of disputes. In addition we consult with parties preparing for mediation, helping them achieve the greatest benefit from dispute resolution. We consult with parishes, schools, and other organizations seeking to implement conflict prevention protocols. We also train staff in conflict management.
Our children need our help. At school and on the internet, kids face unprecedented bullying. It’s time we stepped in to protect the weakest among us. We have enough bullies. We need peacemakers.
