Friends, This looks like a very good event. Also, here's a short video that's both amusing and profound. Narrated by Kiefer Sutherland: http://www.workingtv.com/media15/mouseland.mov regards, rkm -------------------------------------------------------- From: "Lane Arye" <•••@••.•••> Subject: One Day Intro to Worldwork for Activists Date: Mon, 20 Mar 2006 07:33:46 -0800 WORKING WITH EMOTIONS AND CONFLICT: INTRODUCTION TO WORLDWORK FOR ACTIVISTS One Day Workshop on Sunday April 9 with Lane Arye, Ph.D. and Carol Swann This one day workshop will be an introduction to working with emotions and conflict for facilitators/activists. We will look at spacific approaches and tools through theory and experiential work. Worldwork will be introduced to work with conflict. Worldwork is based on the groundbreaking work of Arnold Mindell, PH.D (author of Sitting in the Fire, Leader as Martial Artist) and his collegues from around the world. This exciting and innovative model invites and values all points of view, as well as the emotional reality of conflict situations. Worldwork helps us develop an understanding that what is opposing us may also be a part of ourselves that we are unaware of. We welcome all levels of experience and hope you walk away with new perspectives and some usable tools for your toolbox. Please come in comfortable cloths, a lunch and snacks and an open mind. Please feel free to e-mail this to as many people, organizations and groups who you think might be interested.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT LANE "Daring to sit in this fire with us and facilitate with respect and true love, Lane enabled us to witness in awe moments of change. Hundreds of people left those forums with renewed sense of hope, which helped to transform their lives and their communities. --Tanja Radocaj -UNICEF's liaison with the Croatian Government, Zagreb, Croatia "Something extraordinary about Lane Arye's powerful work is its clarity. The results he gets in working with people in conflict may sometimes seem magical, but he's not interested in mystifying the process; instead, he works with a group to assist people to see what is really happening. When he did a weekend for us in Philadelphia, his group was largely social activists and without missing a beat he adapted his style to the activist subculture. Afterward, he met with a group of activist trainers and added still more to the transparency of his work and thinking. Lane Arye is truly about empowerment." --George Lakey, Director, Training for Change, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania http://wwwProcessWorkLane.com -- -------------------------------------------------------- Escaping the Matrix website http://escapingthematrix.org/ cyberjournal website http://cyberjournal.org blog: cyberjournal forum http://cyberjournal-rkm.blogspot.com/ blog: Achieving real democracy http://harmonization.blogspot.com/ blog: for readers of ETM http://matrixreaders.blogspot.com/ blog: Community Empowerment http://empowermentinitiatives.blogspot.com/ Blogger made easy http://quaylargo.com/help/ezblogger.html subscribe cyberjournal list mailto:•••@••.••• Posting archives http://cyberjournal.org/show_archives/?lists=newslog ___________________________________________ In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C.
