Conflict is Part of Life

Conflict is Part of Life...Learn to Transform it...From Hurting to Helping!

Conflict is part of life, and AVP is not about trying to eliminate it. Instead, we believe in something called “Transforming Power” that enables us to move in positive directions that shift conflict from hurting to helping. The transforming power mandala helps us remember what is required to be at our best.
