Advanced MYL Training: Conflict Coaching, Residential Retreat

The Advanced MYL residential retreats are for people who have completed at least one full year of the MYL Choosing Peace Immersion Program (the 3 intensives), and who want to apply the MYL skills and maps in a mediator or conflict coach role, or in some other way want to contribute to the larger society, including offering training in the 3 Chairs Process for Difficult Conversations. In these retreats, you will experience deep skill training working with the intensity of conflict in difficult conversations. The training is designed around learning and practicing in the context of formal mediation and conflict coaching, but you don’t need to want to be a professional mediator or coach to do this training. You can do one or both retreats, depending on the area(s) of learning and application you want to develop, and you can take them in whichever order you wish.

Based on more than 15 years of professional experience and training in these skills, the Conflict Coaching retreat offers in-depth experiential training in how to offer MYL maps (Internal Mediation, Chooser-Educator, Interpersonal Mediation/Intensity Exercise, Enemy Image Process, Mourn Celebrate Learn, and the Making Amends and Healing Role Play applications of the Healing & Reconciliation process) to coach individuals in dealing wth inner and outer conflict situations and challenges in their personal and work lives.

You will be able to dial up and down the difficulty level to customize your learning, and maximize your learning and growth by playing the roles of both coach and client, give and receive supportive peer feedback, and receive in-the-moment coaching.

In the evenings you will have the opportunity to watch longer demonstrations and engage in in-depth Q&A on process and working as a professional. And you will do all of this in the richness, warmth, and deep connections of a supportive learning community, and in the natural beauty of this rustic setting.


*** This workshop is designed for in-depth learning and practice in the context of offering conflict coaching to people, based on the work of Mediate Your Life and Nonviolent Communication (NVC). It does not cover the more general foundations of becoming a professional coach.
