I have told the same exact word by the father of my children
6. Do a deeper exploration of the feelings, needs, goals on each side of the conflict and look where there might be any shared needs/goals
7. what are some possible ways to achieve the best solution to this conflict?
You all can explore solutions even if the possibilities don't seem likely or plausible at this time
8. how can you translate these ideas into action steps?
what action steps could you commit to, including the when and how?
offer to check in with them at some point in the future to see how they are doing with the action steps that they committed to
There's never nothing you can do when things are caught in separation. Always remember the power of prayer - hold them in your heart , and pray for them to heal from the pain that they felt.

The suggested average donation for this 7 class series is $120.Approximately half of the payment collected goes to the teachers, a quarter to SSC, and a quarter to the poor. We are using an average suggested donation here because in our path (Sufism and Islam), the custom is for those who have more contribute more, and those who have less give less, to make sure the door is open for all, regardless of the ability to pay, inshaAllah. We need a minimum of 30 people registered, inshaAllah, to go forward.
This program is such a beautiful example of several ministries in the
Tariqa to come together to bring forth a single offering. So grateful.
