As we struggle to make appropriate responses to the situations in our families, in our neighborhoods, and in the world, Cultivating Nonviolence offers alternatives. Affiliates are invited to learn more online and in person about nonviolence. The Cultivating Nonviolence program was developed for JustFaith in conjunction with Maryknoll and Pax Christi. It will help us to:
- Develop personal peace,
- Learn more about nonviolence,
- Use nonviolence in all our relationships,
- Envision a better world.
The eight-week October/November session consists of:
- On-line readings and videos,
- Personal and virtual discussions, and
- Nonviolent practices to stretch our capabilities.
Each week we will share our thoughts and learnings through conference calls, emails, and Facebook.
We will read key sections of the engaging book, Personal Nonviolence, A Practical Spirituality for Peacemakers, by Gerhard A. Vandehaar. Copies can be ordered through Amazon, or we will email copies of short sections.
