Working To Resolve Conflict
For some years now Zoketsu has been working with lawyers Jack Himmelstein and Gary Friedman, who train lawyers and other professionals in mediation and conflict resolution. Their work in developing a model that they call understanding-based conflict resolution has been revolutionary and deeply effective. In recent years they have been working with Zoketsu to include a spiritual dimension in their work, to help mediators develop more balance and depth as they approach situations of conflict. In 2007 Zoketsu and Gary launched a nine month Bay Area program in this work. Five day events are sometimes held at Mar de Jade. See Center for Mediation in Law website.
