Sunday, October 15th

Healing the divides in our relationships, families, communities, and society, one conversation at a time.

Polarization has had a devastating impact on our families, friendships, community, and our nation at large. These are the times that can define us. Will we give into patterns of reacting to our differences with disconnection or will we courageously choose understanding, connection, and cooperation in our shared humanity?

In this session we will experience the essence of the process: a conversation with an empathic structure of taking turns mindfully speaking and listening, focusing on understanding rather than agreement, and connecting with what we share in common — our human feelings and needs/values/desires.

How to Be the Mediator of Your Life’s Journey Through Challenges: Navigate Any Difficulty from Conflict to Connection and New Possibilities

In this workshop John Kinyon will share his Mediate Your Life (MYL) approach to Nonviolent Communication. The approach offers “conflict maps” to navigate different regions and territories of the world of human conflict as you experience it in the challenges and difficulties of your life. Perhaps you want to have a difficult or healing conversation, or be able to respond effectively to difficult moments in a conversation, or work with your painful reactions to a situation, or mediate empathy and compassion between parts of yourself. MYL combines a “three-chair” mediation model, the Observation, Feeling, Need, Request (OFNR) communication components, and mindfulness.

In this workshop MYL co-creator John Kinyon will provide demonstrations and experiential learning and practice with the NVC mediation model and some of the key mediation skills. You’ll get to experience playing the roles of both sides of a conflict situation as well as being the mediator, and give and receive helpful and supportive learning and feedback as you practice.
