[167] W: Now I’d like to ask why he came back so late, or if he didn’t come back, the child wouldn’t sleep. In fact, I certainly can express in this way. The mediator facilitated the parties to let go of their opposing positions by creating doubt about what was in their best interest and led them to identify their common goals. The parties let go of their delusion (moha) that they were opposing parties i.e. the ‘self’ versus the ‘enemy’. 4. Data Analysis of journals

12 By analysis of the journals from the students who come from different backgrounds, the theory and application of the BM Model and Five ARM is validated. The students become co-inquirers of the research questions and contributed to the fine-tuning of the final model. Discourse analysis is the analysis of the social text against the social context to show the social reality they construct and the multiple meanings of the object of analysis, to discover the underlying agenda and the assumptions in the sociopolitical context, and to compare and contrast the social positions of the speakers or authors of the text and their social relationships they represent ( Howarth, & Stavrakakis, 1999). 4.1 Sample data from Journals One example is the self-reflection by a student who had a strong background in family counseling and mediation: “(III) Reflection and Learning from Buddhist Mediation I have practiced family counseling for over ten years; I find the western theoretical framework of counseling is quite different from the Buddhist framework. Firstly, the Buddhist framework starts from the roots of conflicts and relates it to moral evils ( akusala mula) . In the contrary, the western theoretical frameworks seldom refer to the moral ethics. From my previous training, I have to study many family theories so as to help me to understand the dynamics of the conflicts. Anyhow, the role of the individual contributed to the conflicts is seldom the focus of study. However, from the Buddhist perspective all kinds of conflicts are analyzed from the individual’s dimension of Akusala mula. This framework provides me a new dimension to understand and analyze conflicts. “Secondly, the doctrine of Dependent Origination and the Five Aggregates provide me with a new perspective in understanding the dynamics of conflicts arising inside the mind of conflicting parties. It is particularly useful in the process of mediation. These frameworks can help the mediator to see clearly what is happening in the process. Furthermore, I would like to stress that the success in applying the above doctrines in the mediation process depends largely on the mindfulness of the mediator which is the prerequisite in practicing.” 4.2 The analysis The analysis of the above discourse is directed to the research question on ‘how’ the student was influenced by the BM model:

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
