Somatic Approaches to Conflict Resolution

School of Undergraduate Studies BIS 1460 1.00

Conflict is an inevitable aspect of human interaction. But conflict need not be catastrophic or destructive - when handled with mindfulness, skill, and compassion, conflict can not only be resolved harmoniously and nondestructively, but can be an opportunity for grace, increased understanding, and the refinement and strengthening of relationship and community. This hands-on workshop takes a holistic, mind/body approach to conflict resolution, rooted in the field of somatics and the art of aikido. We will engage in experiential exercises and physical practices designed to explore and transform habitual patterns around conflict and to cultivate an increased capacity for maintaining mindfulness and presence in conflict situations.
