The Generative Conflict Process was written by Caffyn Jesse in conversation with Tricia Bowler. It was inspired by Tricia’s work at the Being Held Institute, by Caffyn’s work at the Institute for the Study of Somatic Sex Education with Kai Cheng Thom, and by by the conversation and learning at the Queer Transformative Justice Group convened by Kai Cheng Thom and Carly Boyce 2020-2021. Soul mapping is a process adapted directly from the Bay Area Transformative justice collective and the work of Mia Mingus, and inspired by the teaching of Wendy Baxter on values-based organizing. Help in writing and rewriting came from comments made by Kai Cheng Thom, Barry Carl, Lena Byrd, and Liam Snowdon. Thanks to Hailey Heartless on accountability, Smokii Sumac for teachings around Windigo culture, Kai Cheng Thom and Carly Boyce on triangulation and blame/shame processes, Hannah Harris-Sutro on shame, and all of the TJ group in our December conversation on arousal for this section and for the Neural Window of Intolerance. The concept of using play and ritual in generative conflict came from Rev. Michiko Bown Kai and Lukayo Estrella.

Concepts, texts and funding for Soulasto are by Caffyn Jesse. This work was created in conversation with Tricia Bowler. All technical development is by Adventriq.
