The wisdom of Conflict

Ben Yeger



Location:
Venue: to be decided

Dates & Times: 22 Feb 2019 to 24 Feb 2019  10:00 - 18:00


Through movement you will be invited to bring awareness to your own inner

conflicts, to become receptive to the wisdom of the conflicts in your close

relationships and then start to tell different stories about conflict in the

wider contexts of your life.


How does what we do with conflict create barriers to

productive relationships?

 

How do we react when we meet conflict?

 

How is it that conflict is always ‘someone else’s fault’?

 

How can we recognise conflict in ourselves and with others

as an opportunity for change?

 

It seems it is human nature to repeat patterns of behavior around conflict,

to tell repeated stories of immovable responses to it as if these stories were

absolutely true. This workshop invites you to explore the dynamic interaction

between your inner conflicts and the ones that manifest in the mirrors

you meet.

 

Through movement you will be invited to bring awareness to your own inner

conflicts, to become receptive to the wisdom of the conflicts in your close

relationships and then start to tell different stories about conflict in the

wider contexts of your life.

 

In this weekend we will draw on Movement Medicine, Joanna Macy’s Work

that Reconnects and other creative embodied practices to explore the complex

relationship we all have with conflict. Inner and outer, big and small, personal

and collective.
