2019-09-18 Practicing with Conflict 4 1:12:15
  Donald Rothberg
In our fourth exploration of how to practice with conflict, we examine four practice resources, inviting listeners to keep in mind, as we explore the resources, a conflict (whether an inner conflict, an interpersonal conflict, or a larger social conflict); conflict is understood as a difference of, or tension between, positions or values or needs. The first resource is that of the tools of our inner practice: mindfulness practice, heart practices such as compassion, lovingkindness, and forgiveness, and ways to work with difficult emotions and thoughts such as anger, fear, sadness, frustration, the judgmental mind, etc. The second resource is that of the "win-win" or "both-and" model of conflict transformation, in which the aim is to move from an "either-or" or "win-lose" framework toward the "win-win" way of meeting the underlying values or needs of both sides; at times, we may need to move away from the "win-lose" framework through "avoidance" (time outs, cease-fires, etc.) or compromise, on the way, if possible, to "win-win." The third resource is that of empathy, taken as a practice central to working with conflicts of any kind. The fourth resource is that of working with attachments to fixed views that typically arise in conflict situations of any kind, especially through through mindfulness, inquiry, empathy, and heart practices.

  Renate Seifarth
Viriya gehört zu den fünf Kräften oder fünf Fähigkeiten, die wir für unsere Entwicklung brauchen. Viriya lässt sich allgemein als Energie bezeichnen und drückt sich manchmal als Anstrengung, Bemühen oder Beharrlichkeit aus. Hier geht es vor allem darum, wie wir Energie in der Meditation entfalten können.
