The Way of Conflict teaches strategies for using time-tested knowledge and modern techniques to confidently engage in any dispute and reach a balanced resolution. The book integrates the wealth of conflict skills found throughout the world's major religious and indigenous traditions with the latest scientific systems and conflict resolution theory. Using the cross-cultural metaphor of the four natural elements ? earth, water, fire, and air ? it identifies innate conflicts in personalities and offers productive paths through the chaos of conflict. Combining her extensive experience as a licensed mediator and corporate trainer with insight gained from years of spiritual study, Deidre Combs uses assessment tests, anecdotes from indigenous and religious traditions, and illustrative folktales to show how to quickly assess a conflict and implement an appropriate resolution strategy. The Way of Conflict helps people overcome the sense of hopelessness they feel when facing personal, national, or international conflicts, and can help improve relationships and decrease levels of stress and frustration.
