Conflict Resolution: Parts 1 & 2
Co-developed and facilitated by Kai Cheng Thom and Pam Tzeng
In this two-part workshop series, participants will gain the perspective and tools needed to enter, engage with, and exit conflict with greater confidence and ease. We will explore how conflict commonly develops in community and professional settings, with a specific focus on the Canadian dance context. The facilitators will also provide a simple framework for understanding how conflict impacts the body and the brain. We will practice using body-based tools such as breathwork, movement, and visualization can support us to meet conflict with less anxiety, as well as strategies to approach conflict as an opportunity for personal and relationship growth.
Resilience Fund by Canadian Heritage
