The wisdom of conflict - Berkeley, California, USA


Friday 22nd May - Sunday 24 May 2020 

  • How does what we do with conflict create barriers to productive relationships?
  • How do we react when we meet conflict?
  • How is it that conflict is always 'someone else's fault'?
  • How can we recognize conflict in ourselves and with others as an opportunity for change?

It seems human nature to repeat patterns of behavior around conflict, to tell repeated stories or immovable responses to it as if these stories were absolutely true. This workshop invites you to explore the dynamic interaction between your inner conflicts and the ones that manifest in the mirrors you meet.

Through movement you will be invited to bring awareness to your own inner conflicts, become receptive to the wisdom of the conflicts in your close relationships and then begin to tell different stories about conflict in the wider contexts of your life.

This weekend we will draw on  Movement Medicine ,  Joanna Macy's Work that Reconnects  and other creative embodied practices to explore the complex relationship we all have with conflict. Inner and outer, big and small, personal and collective. 

Ben Yeger is a Drama Therapist and highly experienced group facilitator. He is a Qualified Movement Medicine Facilitator and Teacher and has been studying with Ya'Acov and Susannah Darling Khan since 2000 and is a faculty member for the School of Movement Medicine.

No prior dance or movement experience is required - simply your attention and willingness to turn up and be present in the moment.
