A Better Way #121

The lead article in this issue is one by Robert entitled "Healing the Conflict of Wills." We are all familiar with situations in which a conflict erupts between a person who wants help and a person offering help — situations where what ought to be holy ground becomes a battleground. In this article, Robert offers a process for resolving this conflict of wills, based on two Manual sections that deal with this topic in the context of the teacher-pupil relationship. The article includes a diagram of the process and an exercise to apply it. As a bonus, we've included personal stories of three teachers who have successfully applied this process in their own work with those they are trying to help.
