Peaceful Warriors deal with conflict, both internal and external, in an efficient and kind manner, which
breeds a stronger relationship with self, family, and community. Skills like appropriate boundaries,
effective communication, conflict resolution, distress tolerance, assertiveness, and compromise bring
about peaceful relationships in all spheres of life. “Peaceful” because Peaceful Warriors are committed
to using non-aggressive means to solve a conflictual or potentially conflictual situation, whether internal
or external. My goal is teach you skills through experience, games, crafts, and stories and help you figure
out which ones work best for you. The class will vary depending on class dynamics, demographic, and
interest. The main structure starts with a short meditation/warm up activity, focus on a main skill or
competency, ending with a game.
*2020/2021 School Year: Our online class is different from the physical class, in that we don’t play as many of our theatre games and we don’t interact with each other as much. The online class is a bit more focused on meditation, presentation, and discussion. Since we started online in March 2020, we have figured out new games and ways that we can have fun in class, but this is evolving. You will be given your materials box at the beginning of the school year. This will include your class textbook and many/all of the tools that we use throughout the year. Jennifer E.
