Apprenticeship Elective: The Wisdom of Conflict and the Dancing Activist
The Wisdom of Conflict and the Dancing Activist
Drawing on the maps of MM we will explore our current relationship to conflict and how it appears in our lives. We will then seek to discover the Wisdom we find in Conflict once we recognise that it appears as a mirror of something that we have separated from inside us. We will learn how to transform conflict from a block to relationship into an opportunity for deeper connection.
We will draw on the Archetypes of the Dancing Fool, Dancing Warrior and Wise Elder to support us to become free of the Victim, Persecutor and rescuer drama triangle.
From this rich starting point we will combine with Joanna Macys work that reconnects to explore how we can expand our perspective from the realm of personal transformation into being in service of the wider, collective realm. Dancing, becoming fully embodied, ritualising, reconnecting and making choices to become the change we want to see in the world.
