“Conflict is a natural part of relationships that arise from our differences,” says Andrea Pro, the workshops instructor. “When we move closer and discover the intelligence, creativity, and potential within conflict, we strengthen our relationships.”

During this interactive two-day workshop, participants will explore the structure of conflict and gain essential skills that offer choices in they navigate differences.

Participants will learn how to: understand dynamics of conflict and your own conflict style; recognize and skillfully deal with your own and others’ emotional triggers; learn the disarming power of deep listening; make space for connection and healing with a larger perspective; express and explore diverse perspectives; and negotiate shared agreements.
