Hello and welcome to my little corner of the Internet. My name is Aimee Ryan and I'm the founder/owner of Core Connections. Here's a little bit about me...

I’m passionate about co-creating a world where everyone is empowered to show up as their fullest selves, where everyone’s needs matter, and where there is space for all voices to be heard.  As a way to fulfill these passions, I offer conflict transformation and restorative justice facilitation and trainings, Nonviolent Communication workshops, group process facilitation and organizational development, and leadership and life coaching.

I have been studying restorative justice, as well as mindfulness and yoga practices, for over 17 years, and am a Certified Nonviolent Communication Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication, as well as a Certified Coach, Mediator, and Yoga Instructor. 

My experience ranges from working with nonprofit organizations, for-profit companies, schools, and prisons, to communities, families and individuals.

Currently living in Ashland, OR, my life is now largely focused on co-creating social technologies for thriving, equitable communities, organizations, and movements. 

I'm most excited about collaborating with individuals and groups who want to focus on intra-personal, inter-personal, and systemic well-being; those that want to "do their work" so that together we can create a world that truly works for everyone.

to see if we’re a good match
