Creating a Culture of Peace: Active NonViolence Workshop
April 21, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
In these divisive times, it can be difficult to live out our Baptismal promises, yet Jesus has shown us nonviolent ways of living in community. This workshop introduces nonviolent practices through group exercises, stories, reflection and discussion. It provides strategies to engage others respectfully and constructively. Group leaders, teens, and anyone dealing with conflict or controversy in the family, school, work, or organizations, will feel more creative and empowered to respond without violence and improve skills for respectful engagement, instead of confrontation that polarizes and demonizes. Janet Chisholm, longtime nonviolence trainer and Episcopalian activist, will lead the workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch, snacks and drinks provided. Registration is free, limited to 30 people.
