Conflict Resolution Workshop – Oct 31, 2015

A workshop on Conflict Resolution and Anekantavada was organized on Oct 31 under the guidance of Samanijis. The workshop started with manglacharan.
Dr. Samani Rohini Pragyaji introduced the theme explaining conflict in terms of incompatibility of interests, opinions, lifestyles and many other things. These differences become problems when one is not skillful enough to take advantage of the differences. Anekanta doctrine explains a way out of these problems as humans have the ability to appreciate and learn not only from different but even opposite views.
The workshop continued with group activity. We had 5 teams of 4 members each. Every team was given a problem of differences that they tried to resolve in the best way they could. This way the participants actively became the owners of conflict-resolution party through dialogue they had within their teams. The performances of all the teams were excellent.
In the third part, Dr. Samani Satya Pragya ji presented her valuable thoughts on the theme in detail. She discussed that the foundation of conflicts was in fact a tussle between soul and karma. She also stressed that there will be some conflicts that will be unresolvable. She gave the keys of conflict resolution in terms of conflict prevention, conflict resolution, conflict management, and conflict transformation. The talk continued with practical tips for overcoming the situation of conflict and ended with a livley Q&A session. The workshop was very well received by all participant
