Strategies for Peaceful Coexistence

We live in world that tends to focus our attention on conflict. And yet there are tried and true practical wisdoms for fostering peaceful ways of being in the world. These wisdoms increase the ability to be skillful in leveraging diversity—seeing it as a resources rather than a challenge. We each have a choice. Are we a source of calm or chaos? If we’re frazzled, we spread the frazzle. If we remain centered, we send out a ripple of calm to those around us. There is practical wisdom that says, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of the cure’. These practical tools work as both preventive medicine as well as medicine for conflicted situations.

In session one, you will:
  • Learn and practice tools for creating peaceful relationships with others – tools for preventing conflict in the first place and for resolving it when it arises
  • Explore ways to apply the tools
  • Create a personal action plan for applying your new skills within your current situation
In session two, you will:
  • Learn from others and your own experience in applying the tools
  • Explore what works and doesn’t work in using the tools
  • Create a personal action plan for continuing to gain mastery with the tools
