What it’s all about
Social relationships and communities are affected by interpersonal and group dynamics. Where innovative people come together to get involved strong personalities and different views, intentions and ideas collide. The frictions can lead to irritation, which can result in conflicts. The TRIALOG method has been developed with constructive conflict resolution – not to avoiding conflicts – but not to end it there. TRIALOG is intended to help the personality aspects (as described by Rudolf Steiner) the shadow and the double to be released and limited by the I. Hence, TRIALOG is more than just a conflict resolution tool but also one of self-discovery.
Why TRIALOG is used
It is in social interactions and relationships that the darker sides of one’s own personality reveal themselves. TRIALOG helps the personality aspects – described by Rudolf Steiner and partly re-introduced by C.G. Young – that are common to all human beings to be recognize, understood and respond to it in a healthy way; So that social relations and cooperation do not get stuck in unnecessary dynamics.
For whom TRIALOG can be useful
Basically TRIALOG can be important for all people, especially when it comes to
– recognize, understand and address personal abysses
– let social relationships thrive
– make cooperation fruitful
– communicate more clearly
– drive forward ones own development
– pursue a spiritual path;
– get closer to one’s own higher self
Methods and scope
The TRIALOG is based on the Anthroposophical image of human kind and life as introduced by the late Dr. Rudolf Steiner. Depending on the group, concerns and scope, working with ideals (values, virtues, and role models) and fundamental beliefs are part of an intervention just as using elements of self-reflection including the living environment and artistic methods.
The TRIALOG usually takes place in groups. The external framework can be as several short-term interventions or several day seminars.
The costs and scope depend on the concerns and size of the group.
A single session usually takes 1½ hours.
