The goal of this workshop is to:

a) introduce participants to a mediation style that purposefully shifts according to the needs expressed by the clients;

b) invite participants to reimagine the types of questions mediators ask to expand the potential of transforming conflict;

c) draw from the interior condition of the mediator to invite participants to bring their best selves to the table.

Key themes addressed in this workshop:

  • A mediation model that draws from a spectrum of existing mediation styles (transformative, narrative, evaluative, etc.) to intentionally shift with the needs of the clients;
  • Mindfulness practices that encourage presence and deep listening;
  • The “both-and” of conflict technician and conflict healing work – exploring the questions and statements posed within mediation sessions to allow both to occur;
  • Self-reflection regarding one’s own interior condition and teaching about how this space becomes a resource for awakening the best in participants;
  • Opportunities to practice mediation and receive feedback from experienced mediators.
