    Fight, flee, flop – or flip? Transform conflict through Aikido

    Two Rivers Aikikai

    Put the experience of mindful conflict resolution into your body!

    When conflicts arise – perhaps racism comes up, a co-worker pushes our buttons, or we’re embroiled in family dynamics – most of us have a default setting, and it’s not necessarily the most helpful one. In this workshop, we will explore how to become more mindful in those moments so we can choose a response that is more aligned with our values and the outcomes we want to achieve. We will include physical exercises to help you access a deeper level of learning.

    Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art with the ultimate goal of convincing humanity that violence is not an effective means of improving society. While this is not a martial arts class, it is grounded in our belief that the lessons of Aikido can help people develop a centered, balanced and sensitive human spirit.

    No martial arts experience is required. We work with participants to adapt each exercise to your own level of mobility and comfort (or you can learn by observing if you prefer).
