Introduction to Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation

January 18 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until January 19, 2020

with Kazu Haga, Sierra Pickett and Julia Rose Golomb

Kingian Nonviolence grew out of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King and is a transformative philosophy dealing with the transformation of conflict. Many forms of political resistance only deal with “fixing issues,” while ignoring the need to heal relationships. However many healing modalities do not address the systems of injustice that perpetuate trauma. Through interactive activities, the workshop will dispel many common myths of “nonviolence,” and explore the interconnection of personal healing and political resistance, and how to build a powerful movement that honors the dignity of ALL life. This workshop is a partnership with East Point Peace Academy.

Space is limited and registration is requested. 

Cost: There is no registration fee for attending this event, nor most EBMC events. However, EBMC is not independently funded. The Center and the teachers will be sustained only by your voluntary donations (the practice of generous giving, or “dana”). Please donate generously, in proportion to your ability:

* Or at the event, in the two baskets at EBMC, one for the Center, the second for the Teacher.

Thank you for your generosity. EBMC will be only be sustained through our collective generosity.
