MODULE 8 – Conflict Transformation

 

22nd-26th October  2018 (5 days) at Wongsanit Ashram

(Nuttarote Wangwingyoo and Chanchai Chaisukkosol)

 

Module Description:

Conflict Transformation is based on Process Work, a psychotherapeutic paradigm and practical methodology for uncovering deeper meaning in a broad range of human experience by following experiences in the moment through tracking signals, synchronicity, and somatic experience. Founded by Dr. Arnold Mindell, Process Work has roots in Jungian and Gestalt psychologies, Shamanism, Taoism, sociology, and physics; and application in all aspects of human experience including large group work on issues of conflict and oppression.   This workshop offers the opportunity to raise your awareness and facilitation skills for working with conflicts in interpersonal and large group dynamics with the assumption that the solution to a problem is contained within the disturbance itself.
