Description:
Now is the time to explore Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation and gain the skills needed to peacefully and effectively transform the seemingly endless violence in the world around us.

Kingian Nonviolence is a philosophy and methodology that provides the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary for people to pursue peaceful strategies for solving personal and community problems. Often mistaken for being simply the absence of, or opposite of violence, nonviolence is a systemic framework of both conceptual principles and pragmatic strategies to reduce violence and promote positive peace at the personal, community, national and global levels.

Aspects of the training include: Exploring our shared values; Understanding nonviolence from a Kingian perspective; The types and levels of conflict with appropriate strategies for dealing with them; Understanding The Principles of Nonviolence and how they play into our personal lives and organization; Applications of nonviolence; and much more!

Breakfast and lunch provided each day!
