Understanding Conflict

Posted on: January 8th, 2019 by The Village Doctor

Conflict and You

My friend Meredith Robertson of The Courage to Become writes, "Conflict of any kind is difficult. Love, work, familial…you name it, it all hurts. It makes us doubt ourselves, question our reality, and wonder if we are good enough. And frankly? Conflict is a massive waste of valuable resource and time. It all takes away from the full expression and possibility of who we can truly be. We have a solution that you can manage and control; a solution that, embedded in your unique cognitive wiring, starts with you. This video might unlock a few ‘aha moments’ for you. A few insights to allow you to regain your footing on a slippery ground. It’s a new year. Make it yours." Beginning the week of January 7th, participants will be prepared for an online course that begins January 16th.  (Feeling time constrained?

A word of thanks

And I'd like to give another shout out to my friends Dianne and Tad Taube to recognize yet another important gift they are making, this time to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana. This $2 million pledge from Taube Philanthropies promises to fix 'glaring omissions' at the museum and grow distance-learning for Holocaust-related programs.  "As the years go by, the memories and the experiences of the Holocaust start to fade away," said Polish-born philanthropist Tad Taube in an interview with The Times of Israel. "The Holocaust was a central focus for the Nazis and a major historical component of World War II, and it's a glaring omission to present one without the other," said Taube. "Thirty or 40 years ago, the focus was military and diplomatic history," said historian Samuel Kassow. "Now there is more recognition of how central genocide, ethnic cleansing, and planned crimes against civilians all were," he said.

Perhaps surprisingly, the Holocaust education grant will not be used to create exhibits at the museum, known for soaring galleries packed with wartime posters, tanks, and uniforms. Rather, the funds will expand Holocaust-related conferences, screenings, and lectures hosted by the museum, with all the content to be made available online.  Let me encourage you to read more on this important topic here.

As always, it is my pleasure having all of you be part of The Village Doctor practice and family.
