Conflict is a part of modern life—at home, at work, and in the world. In this 1-hour conversation, you'll hear various perspectives to help you understand why disagreement is inevitable and how we might successfully move beyond it.
Harville Hendrix, cocreator of Imago Relationship Therapy and the concept of "conscious partnership," provides insights into how to work with conflict in relationships.
Shauna Ries, cofounder of Mediators Without Borders, shares some of the philosophy and tools of professional mediation and how it can help in everyday life.
Alberto Villoldo, founder of The Four Winds Society, brings an anthropological and historical perspecitive to the conversation, encouraging us to look at the big picture for insights into how conflict transforms when we realize the interconnectedness of all things.
Questions from the audience cover practical issues in politics, education, and business, and help illustrate how moving beyond conflict is possible is something we can all work toward.
This panel discussion is available for FREE through May 23, 2014. It was filmed on campus at Omega Institute and is part of a soon to be released panel discussion series, which features leading teachers exploring timely topics and issues from a holistic perspective.
