What is your relationship to conflict? Is it something you prefer to avoid? Or do you like to lean into a good fight? Recently, Diane Musho Hamilton and I held our 3rd Community Call in our “Dharma & The Evolution Of Conflict” 3-part series. In this call, together with the global sangha, Diane & I dove into this very topic as we explored “Embracing Conflict As Path.”
In the below replay Diane & I engaged in another rich “Dharma Discussion” that drew deeply from our life experiences and influences of Integral Theory, Dharma practice, Conflict Resolution, and Aikido.
In our first call in this 3-part series, we focused on Dharma. In our second call, we turned our attention to evolutionary perspectives on conflict. In this 3rd call, we focus on conflict itself as a Path of practice.
Here are some of the things we explore in this call on “Embracing Conflict As Path”:
- What is the correct relationship to conflict
- The 3 basic conflict styles
- Knowing your own conflict style
- Zero-sum conflicts vs. positive sum conflicts
- Working with the “Aikido Koan”
