This workshop will focus on how interpersonal conflict affects our bodies and how we can use our bodies to effect conflict.
This will be highly experiential using movement and breathing to explore how we can help ourselves – and others – to deal more effectively with conflict situations.
The principles are mainly drawn from the martial art of aikido and the practice of being centered.
In conflict, many of us drop into fight/flight/freeze and this leads us to give way, do nothing or act in an aggressive manner. If we are centered we create the possibility of new choices, of flow – the potential of acting in an assertive and respectful manner.
Anyone interested in how conflict affects the body
Anyone who is wanting to know how their body can help them when dealing with conflict
