Practicing Conflict with Somatic Tools

Monday Mindfulness Salon: Practicing Conflict with Somatic Tools

With Em Saunders, LCSW

Mondays on April 1, 8, & 29  from  6:15 to 7:30 pm  —  $20/session, Sol member discount applicable

Registration is required            

Divergent desires, unmet needs, and differing perspectives are actually extremely common, even predictable, in all kinds of relationships. Yet, with nervous systems wired for survival, conflict can be extremely challenging.

What support can we gather to be able to show up for ourselves and others when dilemmas arise? How can we get more comfortable with the discomfort of conflict while also developing discernment to identify and assert boundaries, or soften into change when needed?

These evening workshops will build on February’s contemplative conflict workshop. We’ll explore frameworks and tools from somatic therapy and relevant wisdom traditions. We’ll look at how past experiences shape our response to conflict and how we can re-shape, while claiming the insight these experiences can offer. This will be a place to expand our comfort and skills with conflict in a supportive practice community.

Those who were unable to join February’s workshop and would like to attend are warmly welcome, and will be provided with supporting materials and context upon registration. 

Em Saunders, LCSW, MST (they/she) facilitates spaces for collective wisdom to grow. They spend a lot of time as a somatic therapist for neurodivergent teens and their families or practicing craniosacral therapy on O’odham and Yaqui land in Southern Arizona. Em also teaches nervous system hacks for broken open hearts, and tinkers with community mutual care projects, ritual, clay, words and hot-wired fiddles
