This workshop is about transforming accusations from something we fear or have difficulty responding to, to something that can trigger personal growth and positive change. Most of our enduring relationships—with lovers, friends, family members, or coworkers—will eventually involve conflict. One person will level an accusation at another, often triggering a defensive response.

Sometimes accusations are overt but mostly they are implied. Occasionally they can be well-received, but more often they go down badly. Our culture, education and upbringing seldom give us the skills to work positively with accusations. This is a great loss. Both accusations that are directed at us, and ones that we direct at others (even if they are never spoken aloud) provide an opportunity for learning and personal growth.

So many of our desires—becoming a better person, doing more of what we want to do in the world, having more meaningful relationships—can be achieved through approaching accusations differently. This workshop is about transforming accusations from something we fear or have difficulty responding to, to something that can trigger personal growth and positive change. In this workshop you will be given powerful, reusable tools that will help you alter the nature of almost all future conflicts.

The workshop is a mix of theory, discussion and a really juicy exercise. It will appeal to you if you want to learn more about yourself and your relationships. It is likely you will leave lighter and more confident than you arrived, and you will have a deeper understanding and sense of peace around at least one relationship conflict.

Please note that this is substantially inner-work (and some small group sharing); it does not involve live conflict resolution work between two or more people. Workshop handouts include a detailed exercise you can practice by yourself, or with a friend/colleague/partner.

Intensity: Between one and three chillies out of four. Different people experience this workshop very differently, depending on how new the work is, what conflicts are up for them at the time, etc.

Who for: People who want to learn from situations, including conflicts. People that are interested in 'inner work' or self-development.

Who not for: This is not a group version of couples-counselling. If, in conflicts, you think that you're always right and it's only the other person that needs to change, you might not enjoy this workshop. (But then again, you might love it!)

What exercises? One main inner-work exercise, which will first be demonstrated, and that you’ll share with others to the degree that’s right for you.

Will there be partner work: This workshop entails mostly inner-work, with some group sharing and sharing in pairs.

Can you work with an existing partner/friend? Not relevant. This is not a workshop where conflicts between two people will be worked with 'live'. Conflicts are used as examples in the abstract.

Nudity/sexual content: None. (If that seems like a strange issue to be clarifying, please note that many other Curious Creatures workshops include adult content).

Commitment:
You can do the main exercise to whatever level is right for you.

Ratio of experiential to theoretical:
About 50/50 per cent.

Bring:
Water bottle, your own snacks.

Wear:
Whatever you're comfortable in.
