Start Date: 1/2/19
Cost: $20

The world has never been so connected — we communicate instantaneously via the internet, watch the world unfolding on 24-hour news channels, and get on a plane only to be thousands of miles away in a matter of hours.  Yet, a virus of dissociation rages across the globe. Schisms have formed between nations, political ideologies, and religious beliefs. There is an inability to bridge these ideological divides.

But, deepening schisms need not be the end of our story. Within each of us is the power to bridge these divides and, in doing so, create a compassionate, nonviolent world. How do we begin? By recognizing that we are imperfect in an uncertain world. As a participant, dig deep into the roots of internal violence, develop a personalized nonviolent stance, build a nonviolent community of compassion, and articulate a message that reflects your life.

We can only transform the world though a message of compassion and nonviolence. This course includes a supplemental resource, Imperfect in an Uncertain World: On Nonviolence developed to ignite your nonviolent essence. Although some of the activities in the workbook are used in this program, participants are encouraged to strengthen their stance of nonviolence through additional workbook resources.

In this course you

  • define violence.
  • identify the roots of interior violence.
  • reframe your perception of the world.
  • increase your awareness of the internal catalysts of external violence.
  • grow in awareness of the choice to compassionately respond or violently react.
  • form a compassionate response to the world.
  • recognize the role of community in creating a nonviolent world.
  • collaborate within the collective consciousness to fashion nonviolent engagement.
  • articulate how your life can be a message of nonviolence and compassion.
  • develop a regular practice of self compassion.
