Mediation And Meditation (Part II) How To Meditate
Mediators must have the ability to be calm, present, grounded and flexible in order to help resolve conflict. Meditation is a tool for developing these qualities, and practicing meditation often enables a mediator to help “bring peace into the room.”
Mediation and Meditation (Part I)- Why Mediators Should Meditate
Mediation is often very difficult work. As mediators, we are called upon to help resolve conflicts that often seem intractable and sometimes involve destructive emotions or even physical violence. To do this work, we must stay calm and grounded. If we are to help heal the parties and the situation, we must be detached, fully awake, open and present. We also need the ability to stay flexible and move in any direction. Meditation is a tool for developing these qualities.
