Mediation as a Spiritual Practice
This post from mediate.com is a must read:
One sample:"For example, several years ago, we – along with our colleague, Susan Miller – co-mediated a complex family business dispute, involving 21 people. It was an immensely satisfying experience, which we have described – with appropriate changes in identifying details – in a case study called “Restoring Trust to the Beneficiaries” . After two emotionally charged and rather harrowing days of mediation, long-estranged relatives hugged and reconnected. Hatchets were buried [not in each other!], and the parties crafted a sensible distribution of land and other assets from a family trust that was about to dissolve."
A hearty "Amen!"
