Connecting to Life in War Times

A Muslim and a Christian community in Nigeria have a deadly conflict.

In the year before the mediation in Giraffe, 100 of a total population of 400 had been killed in this community.

Marshall Rosenberg explains how Giraffe ears help to hear the true meaning behind labels, judgments and enemy images.

And how to pull the ears of the person thinking in Jackal, when the true meaning is being expressed by the other party. Fixed images, enemy images present a formidable challenge to any mediation.

Fasten your seat belts, dear murderers.
