Grievance Policy and Conflict Resolution Committee

Eat Breathe Thrive is committed to upholding the twelve ethical precepts set forth in our Code of Ethics. One important part of this commitment is conflict resolution. Conflicts will inevitably arise in our community, and as an organization we are committed to resolving ethical concerns in a responsible, effective, and compassionate manner.

Our Conflict Resolution Committee is comprised of six respected members of our community. The committee includes at least one yoga teacher, one social worker, one mental health practitioner, one board member, one staff member, and one general community member. The primary role of the committee is to investigate and determine an appropriate course of action for resolving ethical concerns.

1.  Bringing a Concern

To bring a concern to the committee, a request must be made in writing. The letter of request must include:

  • A clear statement that an ethical violation has occurred.
  • The name of the person(s) whose behavior the violation concerns.
  • A description of the alleged violation.
  • A history of the attempts, if any, to resolve the incident through other means.
  • A general statement about the resolution desired.

    No anonymous requests are considered, except in cases in which an individual’s safety is in jeopardy.
  • 2.  Accepting the Concern

    Upon receiving a request, the committee convenes to decide whether there is justification to warrant a formal investigation. The committee notifies both the concerned party and the party named in the concern within two weeks. As part of this notification, the committee states its understanding of the issue under inquiry and distributes a copy of the original letter of request to the party named in the concern.

    3.  Investigating the Concern

    The committee will schedule closed hearings in which all parties are given an opportunity to present their understanding of the issue under investigation. The committee may ask other individuals to provide information relevant to the concern. All parties will have an opportunity to respond to the information – oral, written, or otherwise – investigated by the committee. The proceedings are held confidentially.

    4.  Findings and Action

    When the committee members are satisfied that they are adequately informed, they will review the case among themselves and jointly determine the best course of action. At its discretion, the committee may seek non-binding advice from other sources. The committee’s decision must be reached by consensus. Should the members be unable to reach consensus, and time is of the essence, any member may request that the decision be made through voting. This is because sometimes consensus cannot be reached in a group.

    Within two weeks of a decision, parties will reconvene and the committee will distribute copies of its written findings and read them aloud.
