Training Summary

What is our inner process as a mediator when we engage with participants? What thoughts, emotions, feelings arise in myself in reaction to how conflict parties share and behave? What patterns, and shadows in me get triggered? And what to do with this? Do I engage or distance myself from my inner process when I am supposed to mediate?

By engaging in inner work, we learn to bring awareness to the processes inside ourselves that are usually playing out somewhere below our radar. We thus become more conscious of why we act the way we act in mediation.

Why is this important? When we attempt to sense what is going on in conflict parties, awareness of our inner process helps us to discern our own thoughts, emotions, body reactions and behaviour from what arises in us as a resonance to the inner processes of the conflict parties. We then become more precise in our attunement and better at providing empathy.

As we let go of the role of the untouchable and distant expert and transition towards a more vulnerable and compassionate partner of resonance, can we meet conflict parties at their pace and on eye-level.

Learning Aims

In this session, we learn:

  • to train to listen to our inner process
  • to train to listen to our resonance to other people’s inner processes
  • about models and ways of putting our inner process at the service of conflict parties
