Self Reflection in Action: Using Our Inner Selves to Help People in Conflict (SCPI)
February 8, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - February 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am$500 – $1299
Powerful emotional currents flow through us as professionals who work with conflict. We size up our clients and carry judgments, frustrations and gut feelings about them in our bodies. The frustration, exasperation, anger and other difficult emotions that are part of daily life in this field hold the key to a deeper connection to the parties who come to us. And with connections come new more satisfying possibilities for resolving their conflicts.
In this Self Reflection for Conflict Professionals Intensive (“SCPI”) program, through self-reflective exercises, role play, dialogue and meditation, we will create an opportunity for us all to have a deep intimate examination of our work lives and our relationship to conflict.
There will be opportunities for enjoying the atmosphere and great food of Mar de Jade, situated on a sandy beach on the Pacific Coast of Mexico north of Puerta Vallerta while meeting and studying with participants from geographically diverse locations. Our schedule includes a long afternoon break to enjoy the beach and surrounding area.
Space is limited to 20 persons. Early registration is highly recommended.
