Principles: Sensitivity to the humanity of our opponents. Equality of humanity. All are equally worthy of our concern.

Do not participate in indirect causes of war
Use respectful language (and in general be respectful). While it may seem silly to insist on civil behaviour when the acts we are discussing are often savage, it is absolutely necessary if we are to break through the juggernaut of conflict. Inflammatory language contributes nothing to understanding and in fact makes it impossible.

Become capable of peace yourself (Core Members have access to the Deep Conflict Invitation)

How to Explore a Perspective
Relax, focus. Take a step back and look at the Perspective from all sides. Now, zero in at the center!
 
What is the Bias?
What assumptions does it make? Whose interests does it serve?

What is your Personal Experience?
How does it make you feel? How do your experiences, privileges, and personal interests affect your understanding of it?
Now, enter the heart
▶ Say something good about what you disagree with, even if there are flaws.
▶ Find causes, not symptoms. Ask what lies at the root.
▶ Have respect for people with different views, insights, and priorities!
