Basic Course: Empathy and Conflict Resolution *Farm-Edition

September 2023

Sonja Wolfensberger offers an introduction to the art of empathic listening and conflict resolution on the beautiful farm BungertHof an hour outside of Zürich.

The seven sessions are held on three Saturdays and one Friday evening. On the first evening of the course you can spend the night on the farm.

This is an introduction. No previous knowledge is necessary.

The course will be held in English.

Community and cohesion is unspeakably precious to us. That is why it is our passion to help people listen to one another, even when opinions are diametrically opposed or when there is conflict.

We are sure that a cooperative language will bring back harmony to places where it still seems unthinkable today.

The project Empathie Stadt Zürich stands for a notion of empathy that goes beyond a human-centric orientation to the world. Empathy with the more-than-human world (the beings we learned to call “nature”) is an integral part of our practice. Can you think of a more beautiful place to engage with this than a biodynamic farm?

In this course you will learn to communicate in a way that increases the chance that others

  • understand your point of view
  • feel curious to listen to your words
  • want to cooperate with you

You will learn to navigate conflicts so that

  • You are addressing the cause and not the symptoms
  • All parties are heard
  • Creative solutions are found that cover as many needs as possible

You will discover self-care practices which will help you

  • Cultivate acceptance and self-connection
  • find inner clarity
  • deal with strong emotions such as anger, sadness or fear

Spreading these skills is our contribution to humanity’s challenging yet wondrous journey through time.

All of our courses are non-profit. That is why we depend on financial support.
