By Dr. Scilla Elworthy
This short guidebook offers you the experience of people who have been preventing and resolving conflict for decades. Some of them work at the front-line – at the sharp end of armed violence. Others support their relatives to bring peace to family issues, help stop bullying in their children’s schools, or help their colleagues reduce stress in the workplace. Yet others mediate peace negotiations between warlords.
Here you will find practical, non-technical guidance for how to build your ‘Mighty Heart’, because the heart is the secret to all transformation. In this guidebook you will build the capacity and skills to have ‘courageous conversations’, to engage your feminine intelligence (available equally to men as to women), to understand how to work with and tame your inner critic, how to use anger as a fuel for transformation, and most importantly how to develop Presence.
5 students, young peace builders and activists talk about their experience working with Scilla: what they learned, what impact it had on their life and how they integrated their knowledge into their everyday routine.
