The Taos Institute invites you to attend its 2012 conference, “Exploring Relational Practices in Peacebuilding, Mediation and Conflict Transformation: From the Intimate to the International – a Taos Institute Conference.” The conference will take place in San Diego, California at the Bahia Resort and Conference Center, Mission Bay, November 14-18, 2012.
Practitioners, academics and community members will come together to share and create new forms of practice for peacebuilding, mediation and conflict transformation informed by social construction. We will feature relational, collaborative, and appreciative practices for conflict transformation and mediation in families, organizations, communities, and the world.
There could not be a more important moment for this gathering. As inequality, interpersonal violence, community conflict, environmental demise, political unrest, terrorism, and general global unease proliferate, it becomes increasingly important for us to share and expand our relational resources to create peacebuilding opportunities among people, communities, and nations.
Participants will develop and share ways of moving from conflict-saturated relations to collaborations across divides of meaning. Our time together will both educate and bring to life new forms of practice and new projects large and small that inspire innovative ways of going on together.
