Finding Voice: Conflict Transforming  
Peter Maher and John Bosman

Conflict is a part of everyday life. How do we respond to conflict?  How can we confront difficult situations in our lives?  When relationship tensions rise or something goes wrong we often react by apportioning blame, finding out who is responsible or trying to quickly dismiss it. This workshop will offer skills and knowledge to bring about an appropriate and life giving response rather than a potentially damaging reaction.  How do we find a compassionate voice?  What is happening in us and what is happening in the other person?  Can conflict situations offer an opportunity for personal or professional transformation through healthy strategies?  How can I find deep respect and dignity for myself and the other person?  We will offer some practical skills in healthy self awareness: responding with honesty, dignity and kindness.

Saturday May 10  3-5pm
