Getting Past The Pain Between Us

Turning conflict into opportunities for healing and relationship repair

With Jessica Dancingheart

Weekend December 8th-10th

While conflict is unavoidable and can be painful, it does not have to have a destructive outcome. Nor does it have to result in suffering.

This workshop is for you if you are:

  • Recovering from a conflict.
  • Healing a relationship rift.
  • Tired of on-going power struggles.
  • Getting stuck in the same rut of disagreements.
  • Ready to change your relationship to conflict.

In this highly experiential and interactive introductory training, Jessica creates a dynamic and safe learning space for you to:

  • Learn about the anatomy of conflict and trust.
  • Get a sense for how the brain reacts in the face of disagreement.
  • Listen to the deep down issues that are leading to conflict.
  • Get a sense of the fuller picture by going beyond assumptions.
  • Hold compassionate conversations with yourself and others to get to the heart of the matter.
  • Create options for yourself to get through the pain of conflict.

Here is what people have to say:
"My husband suffers greatly from Childhood Trauma. He was in a car accident that killed his parents and 2 of his brothers. (After your workshop), we went on a very high anxiety leveled trip. It was a trip we took for him to have some major dental work - painful and expensive! I complimented him on how well he did to self regulate his anger outbursts. I said, “I can really see that you tried.” He responded, "Well, I think you did a great job too!" I asked, “What do you mean?” He responded, "It was so obvious that you were trying not to argue with me and you made things so much better when you could see that I was getting upset, and it helped me calm down!!!!!!" OH YA (for these practices)!"
- Dr. Kathy Pokorney, Curriculum and Assessment Director

“I learned new skills from you that changed the whole mood in our house. Instead of fighting my punishment, my child took corrective action for some damage he created. We spent the last two nights watching movies that we both enjoyed. Although, an obedient child sounds nice, I do want a connection more than anything.”
Anonymous, Mother

“Jessica was employed to facilitate two sensitive cases - a discipline matter that involved multiple agencies, and a conflict between divisions for the Public Safety Department. Her ability to engage and gain the complete trust of people in these traumatic and entangling situations was obvious for all to see. What I can so easily say is that many months later, the issues that existed prior to Jessica’s service have virtually vanished. I have also participated in her trainings. I and my fellow participants left with new skill sets, greater understanding of the subject matter and more confidence to apply the skills that were taught.”
- Mike Butler, Longmont Public Safety Chief
