A Mindful Approach to Conflict  (NEW)

"Mindfulness" is everywhere these days! What is it and how can we use it when dealing with conflict? Join us as we explore how carefully watching our thoughts and feelings about a difficult situation can open more options in resolution (and prevention!). This two-part workshop will have activities and discussions, along with some homework to practice in the interval week. Breathing and body awareness exercises will be offered as ways to observe our usual negative thinking in order to gain new clarity about conflict. Limited to 10 participants.

When:        Two Wednesdays - October 15 and 22, 2014, 6:00-7:30pm
Where:       DSC, 302 Weaver Street, Carrboro
Fee:            $50
