Communication Skills in Conflict Resolution–at SSU Saturday September 7 & 14, 2013
We all long to be close to loved ones and have harmonious relationships atwork and in the community, but misunderstandings and missed connections can block and frustrate us.Effective communication skills can turn these conflicts into opportunities to deepen mutual understanding, solve problems creatively, and co-exist peacefully.
Through short lectures, discussion, interactive exercises & role plays, we will look at
our own approaches to conflict, and learn skills and techniques to enhance and expand
our communication toolkit. Link to SSU site coming soon.
Feeling stuck in grudges, resentment, blame or shame? Can’t let go or move on?
Afternoon Forgiveness Workshop –Oct. TBA Santa Rosa CA
Holding grudges or blaming ourselves damages us and limits our ability to love, grow, and change the world for the better. Forgiveness brings healing and opportunities for change. But what is forgiveness? Why is it so important? And how can we begin to free ourselves from bitterness, resentment, & shame and find compassion instead for ourselves and others?
In this four hour interactive workshop, we will discuss what forgiveness is and isn’t, how you can break the power of the emotional triggers that can lead to grudges and resentments being formed. And how you can choose at any moment to start letting go and forgive. Workshop includes interactive exercises, a guided visualization, and a letting go ritual.
