Leon Berg is a founding member of The Ojai Foundation. He is a Senior Trainer of The Ojai Foundation’s Center for Council Practice, and has been facilitating Council groups in the U.S. and abroad for over 20 years.
In 2001, he went to Israel to seed the practice of Council among Israeli Jews and Arabs, co-founding the Israeli nonprofit organization Ma’agal Hakshava (Listening Circles). Leon has returned to Israel many times since then to conduct Council trainings and lead a variety of coexistence programs.
