HOW OFTEN DO YOU AVOID CONFLICTS?

Do you think it is good idea to avoid conflicts? Or, on the contrary, are you convinced that it is necessary to go into battle, win and reach the desired solution? In an effort to keep calm, we may suppress our own emotions - but they will not disappear. And the conflict will not go away - it can feed and increase the suppression strategy. From the initially small dissatisfaction, great hatred can grow.

If we understand conflict as a struggle, it can happen that we leave it defeated, or that we win, but we pay for our "win" by losing the connection with the other person.

But there is another possibility… To remain fully present and "alive" in a conflict situation. Perceive one's own energy and the energy of the other. Don't try to hurt, manipulate or win, but just talk openly about your needs. And hear what the other person is saying. Be empathetic to his needs.

Mackenzie Amara teaches that if we can do that, our conflicts will lose the taste of corruption and become something that will purify our relationships and recharge them. And in the online seminar How to Go Through Conflict? shows how to do it.

A well-managed conflict brings self-knowledge and new insights, leads us to healthy boundaries - and above all - can be a source of deep closeness.

How is it to dance home alone? We asked Mackenzie:

For me, to dance alone is to truly connect with my own authentic impulse. There are no others around me to whom I need to cater; no pesky eyeballs watching my movements, nobody else's breath distracting my awareness, no unchecked body parts accidentally making contact with my own. In my alone-dance, I can hear my inner voice--the one that speaks through impulse--unimpeded. I can also recognize all of the places in me that are craving connection, longing to connect, dying to be part of something larger. I can feel those places & settle into my own prayer, my own devotion. For what is prayer if not recognizing the lack & becoming so full of it that it disappears?
