Find a place where you can be quiet with your thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for about five minutes, perhaps repeating a word or phrase to separate yourself from the activities of the day. When you feel settled and relaxed, consider:

  • In what kinds of situations do you most often experience conflict?
  • In what ways do you typically respond to conflict?
  • Think of a time when you felt you successfully resolved a conflict. What actions did you take? What were your feelings and attitude toward someone with whom you were in conflict?
  • Who are your role models for peacemaking, and why?

This session focuses on peacemaking. The way you model peaceful interaction and help participants interact peacefully can serve as powerful lessons.
