06 Practice: Mapping Group Conflict with Celia Kutz

Ever get disoriented in a conflict? This group conflict dynamics mapping practice is meant for supporting feelings of overwhelm with a clear tool for finding ground in moments of chaos. You’ll need a way to write or draw some things out, so grab a piece of paper and pen, or art supplies, or even stuff to collage with. You’ll be prompted to call to mind a recent conflict experience, either interpersonal or group.

You'll want to see the visual that goes along with Celia's instructions - check it out here.

Check out episode 6 for the corresponding conversation with Celia Kutz  titled "Facilitating Conflict and Leading from the Feminine” to listen to our conversation about conflict as a generative place that can offer groups deeper clarity and insight. She speaks of strong emotions, mental health, and showing up leading from the feminine -- what it means to reclaim expressing strong feelings as a political act, inner diversity, confusing group dynamics, and de-individualizing care.

About our guest

Celia Kutz

Celia Kutz is a playful, fierce, force of love, currently facilitating and training social justice movement groups via Training for Change. Born from Jewish women with strong emotions, her style elicits strength and vulnerability. Her approach brings together participant-centered education, body-based wisdom and her experience as an organizer.

With roots in rural, white, working class Western, NY Celia has also lived in Montreal and Minneapolis where she studied the impact of settler colonialism, organized against gentrification and mobilized activists for mass protest. She is most proud of her passionate work facilitating groups in Appalachia and organizing with Jews against the Occupation. Celia now lives in Philadelphia, on the land of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape. She is a Global Somatics Practitioner, on the Advisory Board with the Ulex Project, a capacity building retreat center in Catalunya and on the Equity & Diversity Committee with iBme, running mindfulness retreats for young people. When she’s not keeping the fires burning as Co-Director at Training for Change you can find her dreaming, scheming, singing, swimming and loving up her community of friends.
