Thank you. This, I think, is frontier-breaking, and so needed. We must ultimatley remember the soul and spirit of humanity. Many blessings and synchronicities as you continue this vital work.

Beautifully written
As a business psychologist who tries to develop emotionally intelligent leaders and organizations it is always refreshing when I see that I am not alone in my belief in the importance of emotions. I truly believe that it is impossible to separate emotions from work and the old saying "Leave your emotions at the door" in my humble opinion is old and very much outdated. I found your insight stimulating and I enjoyed every aspect of your article. Every day I wake up and go to work with the goal of developing core leadership skills in individuals. In my opinion, understanding and managing ones emotions is critical to the success of any great or future leader. Thank you for the article. It was a true pleasure to read.

It was interesting to read this article and to try to collate it with the other observations and tools used in mediation. In particular it is importantin helping direct the learning process for those wishing to be mediators.

Mother of all mediation discussions!
It is heartwarming to read such words from an attorney. For the most part, our judicial system considers itself to be the overarching container for the process we call Mediation. In the biggest disputes, this almost has to be the case because the legal issues are huge and impossible to ignore. I have come to realize, however, that it's the other way around. Emotion, the ancient language of the Soul, is the overarching and infinitely patient (i.e., NO regard for time) Mother of all human fighting... indeed, of all human perception. If you cut Mother out of the dispute conversation then NOTHING will ever be truly settled. Every mediator with more than 30 minutes of experience knows this. Thank you Charles for encouraging us to pay the attention that is due Her. None of us would want to live in a world from which She had been banished.

A worthwhile checklist of the underlying and fundamental human mindset conditions, to assist mediators in any professional field.
