2008-05-21 Maintaining A Sense Of Vision And Practice In The Midst Of Conflicts 58:12
  Donald Rothberg
Why is it so difficult to bring practice into situations of conflict? We look at five reasons for these difficulties, each of which suggests an aspect of our practice in the midst of conflicts. We then explore some resources for nondual conflict transformation, particularly the middle way of the Buddha and a "both-and" vision for working with conflicts.
2008-05-26 Five Guidelines For Practicing With Conflict 46:54
  Donald Rothberg
We explore five aspects of bringing our practice to conflicts - inner, interpersonal, group, or social: 1. At the heart of such practice is transforming reactivity and responding skillfully. Also crucial are different ways of: 2. grounding and centering in the body, 3. resting in the heart, 4. maintaining a non-dual vision, and 5. continuing to be deeply engaged and acting without attachment to immediate outcomes, once we have acted responsively.
