Conflict as Opportunity

August 30, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Diane Kirschner
Andra Miller Presides

What attitudes do you hold toward conflict? Does conflict stimulate feelings of discomfort or is it energizing? How does your conception of conflict shape your relationships with others and yourself? What valuable opportunities might conflict present? Join us for an exploration of what new possibilities for learning and connection might open up when we challenge our beliefs around conflict.

Diane Kirschner was introduced to Ethical Culture at age 11. She is a graduate of the Brooklyn Society’s Sunday school and has held many positions at that Society as an adult member, including board president, presider, and ceremonies officiant. In 1968, Diane attended the American Ethical Union’s Encampment for Citizenship, a program designed to give young adults an experience in democratic living. Diane worked as an administrator in the AEU office, and has been on staff of its Lay Leadership summer school since 2008. She is currently an Ethical Culture Leader-in-training. Her study and practice of Nonviolent Communication, as developed by Marshall B. Rosenberg and adapted by subsequent trainers, began in 2004 and is on-going.
