This article stems from a research project about mediation experiences and transformational conflict management in areas affected by the armed conflict in Colombia. The first finding states that in the midst of repeated violence cycles, people have achieved a “pacifist empowerment”. They have overcome and called upon their capacities to transform conflicts and restore social structure. The second one, concerning self-work, is the symbolic approach when dealing with conflict and educating in peaceful coexisting ways. The identified cultural resources served as the basis for creating digital training content that will contribute to the country’s Cátedra de Paz in the country. Therefore, specific experiences were transformed into training contents aimed at building peace instead of using contents based on provisions or theories.
