Deep Democracy: Conflict Resolution, Prevention and Management for Individuals, Teams, Organizations and the Public Space

Arnold Mindell’s Process work, also known as the Deep Democracy paradigm, is to our knowledge the only paradigm that allows the facilitation of conflicts without a prior buy-in from stakeholders. It explains the creation, flow and resolution of conflict in terms stemming from modern physics, psychology, and complex system theory. Its applications range from open forums on public hotspots to vision and strategy development in organizations. A key element of the approach is the focus on inner conflicts which reflect outer tensions, and vice versa.

Drawing on the phenomenon of polarization and symmetry named by quantum mechanics and linking it to process oriented theory in terms of identified and non-identified information,  conflict resolution methods can be used to work with inner conflicts, mediate legal differences, coach individuals involved in conflict,  and process a vast range of group issues - from small team conflicts to national public dilemmas that disturb our nation.

In this 3 Day workshop, we will demonstrate and practice our conflict resolution methods.

Day 1: Inner Conflicts and Relationships
