There is a connection between the personal individual psychology and the collective political energy and direction in society.
This workshop will give safe space for individuals to explore and share their own feelings and activities about peace including their own fears of the same. A goal of the workshop is to empower exploration and expression of personal honest dynamics with the hope of helping break down barriers and to touch on what interferes with movement toward peace on the individual level. Emphasis will be made on discourse based on a sense of equality of legitimacy of the personal experience.
A goal of this workshop is to develop a model in the workshop for working in the wider population around issues of peace using “Guidelines for Skillful Conversation” and concepts of Open Space, Inquiry for Understanding and Chaotic Organizational ideas.
