Mindfulness in the Heat of Conflict: Being Clear and Calm
Being mindful gives conflict resolution practitioners (mediators, negotiators, facilitators, coaches, attorneys, arbitrator, human resource personnel, and psychologists – to name a few) the opportunity to respond skillfully to whatever is arising in the moment, even in the heat of conflict. To strengthen your ability to be mindful at work and play, you will be introduced to mindfulness meditation. This 4-hour course increases mental acuity and focus, promotes freedom from habitual judgments and reactions, builds our capacity to be fully present in the moment, lowers stress and promotes clarity and calmness. This highly successful in-person course now moves to the global classroom where virtually anyone anywhere with a computer can learn to pay focused, non-judgment attention to experiences as they unfold. By participating in a series of enjoyable exercises and conflict-related role-plays, you will be introduced to two practical tools of awareness, STOPSI© and Taking STOCK©, co-created by Wohl and Leonard L. Riskin, which help integrate mindfulness into our conflict resolution work and home lives.
