Foundational Conflict Engagement Training for Our Times
February 2022 Registration Now Open!
This course will introduce you to a simple and profound approach to working with group dynamics, decision-making and conflict. While we may not be sharing physical space, our four virtual days together have been designed to encourage experiential learning of this philosophy and practice. CoResolve is for anyone who wants to meaningfully engage groups in saying what needs to be said, and hearing what needs to be heard, towards greater awareness, empathy and ethical action.
It feels like a great privilege to be training these skills together during a time when the stakes for working well with difference, conflict and power in our communities are high, and the need for trusted facilitators and leaders is present in every system, organization and our own inner lives.
Dates: February 3, 4th, 10th and 11th
Time: 9am- 12:30pmPST
While online, you can still expect this to be a very active, energizing and participatory course. Have a colleague or friend who you think could use this kind of support? Please pass this email along!

Co-Resolve is a course for people and leaders who are called on to skillfully handle complex interpersonal and team dynamics. Based on the underpinnings of the Lewis Method of Deep Democracy, this specialized course covers the theory and practice of conflict engagement. You will leave with practices designed to bring out the deeper issues more quickly and safely, and for engaging tensions that can lead to greater understanding, insight and collaboration.
While this is not specifically an anti-oppression training, since conflict often arises in relation to systems of oppression, a lens on power and trauma-informed practice is deeply integrated into the content, process and facilitation of the course.
This course will be taught by 2 trainers from Waterline Worker Cooperative: Aslam Bulbulia and Camille Dumond. It is a highly experiential course, limited to 10 participants, applicable to both experienced and emerging leaders.
We offer this course online in four half day sessions.
Price: $600 CAD/person plus GST
