This program has been cancelled.
As long as you have relatives, a job, or simple preferences, conflict is going to be a part of life. Bracing yourself against it won’t make it go away, but you can learn to navigate it in a way that honors everyone involved—and even make it a source of deep insight and creativity. In this 4-day workshop with Diane Musho Hamilton, you will learn and practice:
- Mindfulness-Awareness as the ground from which you engage conflict
- Exploring personal conflict styles, and expanding your response repertoire
- Cultivating presence when working with the intensity of high emotions
- Inhabiting multiple perspectives and privileging perspectives
- Basic negotiation skills and creative outcomes
- Trusting the intelligence of conflict in context of growth and change
