Conflict transformation in action
"Their trust in each other and the process was wonderful and I have applied what I have learnt about conflict transformation into my work to great impact.”
Rachel Amato, consultant
To resource and empower leaders, organisations, and individuals to face and address conflict in a way that catalyses its transformative power and supports radical inclusion, connection and long-lasting systemic change.
Conflict is an inevitable part of life and can be an opportunity for constructive change. However, conflict is often done badly, in a way that increases violence and de-humanisation and the illusion of separateness. We believe conflict can be done with compassion and connection and with a ‘heart of peace.’
Systemic Conflict Transformation (SCT) is a process of radical inclusion. It brings what has been disconnected back into connection.
We believe that conflict may feel personal but in fact is always trying to tell us something about the system that has been excluded, and needs to be seen and heard. Facing this ‘excluded part’ relaxes the system. This includes parts of ourselves.
To do this important work, we need to be resourced and in community/ connection with those that are different from us. We need to have a deep heart and desire to ‘cross the bridge’ of our own belonging groups and a collective vision for something better.
