A Weekend of Mindfulness
Request this 2-day workshop!
Day 1: Conscious Living ~ A Mindful, Positive Approach
Bringing consciousness to how we approach each moment
Balancing the complexities of daily life can be overwhelming. Intermingled with all of our various relationships with other people, we have our relationship with our Self – past, present & future. Compounding the stress of our responsibilities, obligations, and the expectations of others, we have our regrets and grief about the past, our resistance to the present, and our anxieties about the future. These are the things that occupy our awareness in ways that often keep us from living consciously and in the moment, fully aware of our blessings and mindfully choosing how we will celebrate the past, engage fully in the present, and consciously create our future.

Day 2: From Power Over to Power With ~ Bringing Mindfulness to Conflict
Conflict is often seen as a negative event where one must gain power over the “Other” and win, while the “Other” must give up their power and lose. The tragic consequences of this belief can be seen throughout our world history and often within our very families. What if conflict were seen as an opportunity to learn, to teach, and to grow? What if conflict were seen as a collaboration, rather than a competition – and “Power With” opportunity, rather than a “Power Over” battle?
Learn an enlightening, peaceful, and constructive approach to how we see and respond to conflict.
- Understand how our needs drive our actions (often unconsciously), and how competing needs drive conflict.
- Learn about the “Chain of Conflict” and how to break that chain
- Learn to see situations and people from the “Neutral Observer” perspective
- Learn Conscious Communication
- Practice needs-based negotiation
- Become familiar with how to mindfully approach conflict from a collaborative “Power With” perspective, rather than a
competitive “Power Over” perspective
