Through this two-day intensive workshop we will learn how our culture is controlled by a system of violence and what can be done to change it. Understand the principles of nonviolence, and that it is not passive but active engagement. Develop skills in listening and communicating in order to foster better relationships and more harmonious communities. Discover strategies to bring a nonviolent social movement to your local communities. There will be small group and large group exercises, journalling and discussions throughout the two days. Tea and snacks will be provided.
Fee: $25
