With a focus on “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace,” this month’s Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center lunch-and-learn meeting features Andrea Pro, who will present “Taking the Scariness Out of Conflict” on Thursday, March 16, 2017, from noon to 1 p.m.

“Underneath most conflicts are differences that are simply expressions of our uniqueness,” said Pro. “It’s a great loss for everyone when we shy away from exploring our differences.”

In this interactive mini-workshop, explore why we fear conflict and how to take the lead in forging a safe container to invite open dialogue with others.

Pro will share three must-have skills for navigating differences with clarity and confidence.

Ku‘ikahi’s Brown Bag Lunch Series is free and open to the public.
