Transforming Conflict through Calling In – 2
July 28 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM CDT
In this 2-part workshop, based on the work of Loretta Ross and Loan Tran, we will explore the practice of “calling-in” as an alternative approach to responding to conflict. We will start to contextualize “call-out culture,” or “cancel culture,” within systems of domination and control. Rather than punishing and isolating people when they make mistakes, calling-in practices invite us to be in a relationship with ourselves and with each other in a more compassionate way. These practices allow us to build stronger, more resilient communities as we spread the work of ESD.
In Part 1, we will explore our own histories with conflict and how internalized messages shape our beliefs and behaviors in the present. In part 2, we will move from theory into action, using calling-in conversation starters to interrupt and intervene in situations where behaviors perpetuate harm. We will expand our teaching toolbox to include more somatic, or body-based practices which are designed to help us stay grounded, present, and responsive in the midst of conflict.
