Conflict Zen® is the centered, balanced, intentional response to conflict that most people want. It’s the kind of response the minimizes relational debris, makes you feel good about how you handled it, and exponentially increases creativity for individuals and groups.
Conflict Zen® retreats are an inner feast, a reflective space for you to learn simple, mindful approaches for keeping your balance and changing your reactions during conflict at home and work. There’s nothing like space where time stands still and you can devote your energy and spirit to the things that really matter in your life.
Now, for the first time, I’m offering my Conflict Zen® retreats to the public. On March 19-20 I’ll be joining an an intimately-sized group of people here in southern New Hampshire to explore the 7 habits of Conflict Zen®:
- 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
Participants will 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 at the idyllic Inn at East Hill Farm near historic Jaffrey, New Hampshire. With stunning, inspirational views of Mount Monadnock, the retreat site offers comfortable accommodations, relaxed atmosphere, modern facilities with the feel of the past, home-cooked meals, acres of walking trails and inviting indoor nooks for conversation and contemplation.
Despite its warm simplicity, the 150-acre Inn at East Hill Farm boasts many amenities: on-site massages and reflexology, a gift shop, wireless computing, boating in the summer and ice skating in the winter, indoor and outdoor pools, and more. Not to mention a few resident dogs and farm animals. The inn is 15 minutes from Keene, NH, an hour from the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, an hour and a half from Boston.
All retreat participants are urged to stay at the Inn overnight in order to take advantage of meals with the group and allow yourself the space and time to take full advantage of reflection time during the two-day gathering.
Retreat registration is now open and will remain open until the available spaces are filled or March 12, 2009. There’s an earlybird registration rate, as well as a discount for concurrent registrations of two or more people.
Comments about Tammy’s workshops and retreats
What have others said about my conflict resolution training and retreat work? Here are a few samples:
“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 hope you’ll join me for a little New Hampshire conflict zen in March!
