Event Description

Online realtime Course 4 Sessions - 2nd April - 30th

How do we build capacity to be with conflict in creative and generative ways, with kindness and courage at the center?

How can we be and work with the intensity and creative potential of complexity, confusion, and difference?

What are we learning about working in the liminal space between conflict and collaboration?

Conflict like fire can burn, illuminate or transform, depending on HOW we handle it. In this course we  explore how to lean in to the fire of conflict and work with it, and each other, with greater skill, respect and care. Leaning in to conflict – including the pain and confusion that often accompany it – and staying with it, can help us learn and connect more deeply with ourselves and each other.
We invite you to join this exploration and deepening practice of creative conflict engagement that can help us collaborate better, improve OUR relationships and ultimately make peace with conflict.

In this course we explore:

  • Changing our commonly negative attitudes towards conflict and exploring the necessary role that it can play in our lives and relationships.
  • Viewing conflict as a system and examining it through a personal, interpersonal and systems lens.
  • How to slow down our automatic fight/flight responses and engage conflict more mindfully and creatively.
  • We look at changing our attitudes toward conflict, cultivating embodied practices that allow us to be more creative and courageous when faced with difference and disagreement.

Who is this course for?
