Skills for Self & Group Conflict using Somatic Techniques and Arnold Mindell’s Deep Democracy Approach, with Martha Eddy & Carol Swann.
What if you had the skills to embrace conflict? Often conflict is seen as a problem, two entrenched sides dug into each of their positions. In contrast, Arnold Mindell defines conflict as a situation that is trying to balance itself. This weekend intensive will help participants harness the potency of conflict to deepen our awareness of our selves, our relationships, and our communities.
Deep Democracy is about representing all the different peoples and stories and as many of the deeper states of mind (dreaming, verbal & non-verbal) as possible. It is about the equal importance of all parts, peoples, and levels of awareness which includes: Consensus, Reality, Dreamland, and Essence.
By bridging the arts, body scores (BMC, Laban/Bartenieff, Authentic Movement, Somatic Psychology - Hakomi & Process work, Education & Group Process) we practice taking on polarities and creating new forms of leadership and social actions.
We will work with body-based tools to not only learn the content and skills of some of these systems, but how they support and generate new solutions as we listen and reflect upon the body-mind wisdom, the sensitivity to expand the range of perception & expression, vitality & appreciation of differences, thereby enhancing the overall health of the community.
