What would your life be like if you no longer carried the stress of conflict on your shoulders? What would your days be like if you knew how to keep your balance during disagreements and strengthen your most important relationships in the process?
Announcing my New Engand fall retreat and seminar
Registration is now open for my fall 2-day Conflict Zen® retreat and seminar. I’m deliberately keeping it a small group, so I’m seriously limiting the number of seats available. And this time around, you’ll have the view above from our lakeside cottage. It’s an informal setting with 12 miles of walking trails, a charming country inn with all the modern amenities, and a fireplace in our working space to warm our toes while we warm our hearts.
Retreat and seminar agenda
When you join my small group at the retreat, I’ll teach you the 7 Habits of Conflict Zen® and how to use them at work and home:
- Kicking the criticism habit
- Breaking the bickering habit
- Keeping your cool in conflict
- Taming your inner conflict junkie
- Overcoming your inner conflict coward
- Making peace with the conflict groan zone
- Uncluttering conflict to focus on what really matters
You’ll walk away with:
- A refreshed sense of possibility for your most important relationships at work and home
- A roadmap for achieving your own Conflict Zen®
- Habits you want to shed and adopt, and a plan for doing so
- Practical tips you can apply in your difficult conversations right away
- A view of what’s possible when you bring the right mindset to conflict resolution
The retreat will take place in the casual Lakewood Cottage at New Hampshire’s Woodbound Inn, nestled on the shores of Lake Contoocook in the heart of the Monadnock region. The Rindge, NH inn is an hour from the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, and a 1.5-hour drive from Boston.
I encourage all retreat participants to stay at the Inn overnight in order to allow yourself the space and time to take full advantage of reflection evenings during the two-day gathering. I’ll be staying there, too.
Overnight accommodations carry the special retreat rate of $119/person per night. The inn is holding a block of rooms for my participants and will release them to the general public after October 5.
The seminar and retreat runs 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, November 5 to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, November 6. There will be an hour break at lunch; mid-day and evening meals are your own, though seminar attendees frequently choose to dine with other attendees they’ve befriended.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned the gourmet restaurant at the inn yet, have I? Let me correct that omission: Here’s a little photo sample to whet your appetite.
Registration is limited to 10 people to keep the retreat intimate and create the ideal learning environment. That’s not a lot of seats, folks, so if you’ve been waiting for my next seminar to come ’round, now’s the time to act. And if you register soon, you can save yourself a cool $50 on the registration fee with the $297 earlybird rate.
Registration covers enrollment in the seminar and retreat, retreat materials, and healthy morning and afternoon snacks each day.
Comments about Tammy’s workshops and retreats
“I always thought certain people knew exactly how to push MY buttons. After being a part of Tammy’s awesome Conflict Zen® presentation, I realized that I can be in total control my buttons. It was fascinating to realize that the source of my buttons were self-made; that they had nothing to do with the other person, but was actually my reaction based on my own sense of self. It was a powerful revelation and a sure path to self-awareness. Thanks, Tammy, for opening my eyes!” – C Trottier, Public Service of NH
“Tammy presents a wealth of information in a coherent and finely tuned format. During the workshop, I found myself wishing that everyone in the world could assimilate at least a portion of the communication skills she modeled so naturally.” – D Macy, The MacDowell Colony
“This training should be part of Life 101 class! Knowing how to navigate relationships is crucial and Tammy helped uncover some of the mysteries we all face in school, at home and in social contexts” – Vermont BEST Initiative participant
“I have never taken such a well taught workshop, nor learned so much in such a brief period of time. Your level of professionalism is outstanding, your competency as an educator superb.” – M Simon
I’ve just returned from two weeks with my husband in an oceanside cottage on the Gaspe Peninsula in the Canadian Maritimes and have to say I’m rested, relaxed, and looking forward to a fabulous fall. Hope you’ll be part of it!
