This book focuses on the role of the body in conflict resolution and peacemaking. Conflict generally includes fight-or-flight arousal. That arousal is a physical body state which makes it hard to think or act in peaceful, non-oppositional, affirmative ways. The book offers a systematic progression of exercises, games, and role-plays which adults can teach to children to help them recognize the postural contraction and stiffness of fight-or-flight arousal and replace that with a soft and expansive body state. This mind/body state is the foundation for non-violent, respectful, harmonious functioning. 75 pages.
