Mali is an ICF Certified Professional Coach, a facilitator and trainer in Collaborative Communication/Dialogue and Leadership, Inner Empowerment/Self-Esteem, Conflict Resolution/Transformation, Restorative Practices, Mediation, Nonviolence, Mindfulness, Peace Education and Trauma-Informed Attachment Healing.
Her approaches come from integrating years of studies in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), Restorative Practices/Justice, Family/System Constellations, Positive and Conscious Discipline to parents/educators/youth, Leadership Coaching, Mindfulness and her love of any brain science topics, Attachment Theory and Interpersonal Neurobiology.
Mali supports individuals, (ex)partners, families and groups to find collaborative and restorative relating within and with others – in person or virtually through her private Core To Coeur (Heart in French) practice. See her in-depth offerings at www.core2coeur.com.
For the other part of the week, Mali works along Tarek Maassarani and other team members on the Restorative DC project (previously DC Alliance for Restorative Practices) to bring Restorative Practices to DC public schools educators and youth since 2015.
Mali believes in the “Beloved Community” being the framework and “attachment village” for supporting ourselves and all generations. She co-organizes The Peace Circle community events year-round in the DC area including annual camping trips in the Spring and late Summer. She is also a co-host/organizer/trainer of the annual NVC Family Summer camp: Family HEART Camp West Virginia.
Mali lives with her two life-teachers, her children, in Washington, D.C. during the school year and in her native land of France for a part of the Summer. Mali is fluent in French and English.

Rhonda Eldridge has come to believe that social change cannot take place at a ‘societal’ level because society is made up of individuals. Whatever our history is, whatever we just ate, whatever the temperature is outside, it is all within the same pool of universal needs and feelings. If we can come to each other with that ‘knowing’ and be truly present to the current aliveness in ourselves and in the other, then the fear subsides. If the fear subsides between you and me, then it has a chance to subside between you and the next person, and me and the next person, and so on.
Rhonda has been a core member of the NVC Northern Virginia Practice Group for seven years and a contributing member of Capital NVC Community and a producer of Act Like a GRRRL – NoVa (https://actorsbridge.org/act-like-a-grrrl-nova/)
