Season of Non-Violence: Practical Tools for Living Nonviolence in Everyday Life

Sunday, January 29, 2017      2 – 3:30 pm 

Please join the Dayton International Peace Museum on January 29, 2017 as we begin this year's Season for Nonviolence (January 30-April 4) with an introduction to Nonviolent Communication©. 

NVC is an approach to living that has roots in Gandhi's teachings on nonviolence. It uses the word “nonviolence” as Gandhi used it—to refer to our natural state of compassion when violence has subsided from the heart. It refers not only to physical violence, but also to any other way we “attack” people, such as through judgment, criticism, and blaming. 

Many of us long to hold others and ourselves with consideration and respect. But we sometimes find it difficult to live these values in daily life. NVC gives us practical tools for embodying these values in any situation. 

 
Diane Diller is a certified Nonviolent Communication©/NVC* trainer and Dialogue Facilitator. She offers classes, workshops, practice groups, and individual sessions throughout the Miami Valley.

TIPS Students Ready for a New Year of Peace Activism-New Members Welcome!

Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions
 

Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions

The winter 2017 session of the TIPS program is set to begin at the Dayton International Peace Museum.  The number of students has doubled since last Spring's inaugural debut of the group with students from over ten Dayton area middle and high schools. New teens are always welcome to join!

The group meets on Saturday afternoons at the Museum and ends every session with a 'family style' feast of good food and conversation.  One of the major goals in 2017 is to create individual projects revolving around social justice in their schools and communities. One project that is under way already is the support of the Native American Indians fighting to protect sacred land and water from oil pipelines construction in South Dakota. Other projects will be focused on the Miami Valley and issues directly related to our schools and neighborhoods.

The Voyage of the Phoenix

The Voyage of the Phoenix


 

Exhibit Highlights Family's Efforts to Promote Peace and Equality

The first “Voyage of the Phoenix” is the story of how one family on a carefree pleasure cruise became socially conscious activists. Created by Wilmington College Students, the exhibit is a story of transformation. During their trip around the world the Reynolds family became aware and opposed to racial inequality, global inequality, and nuclear testing. Barbara Reynolds eventually founded the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College. This is an exhibit you’ll want to see and remember.

The Voyage of the Phoenix is on exhibit now in the central exhibit space at the Museum

 

The exhibit focuses on the 1958 peaceful protest by the family sailing into the Pacific nuclear testing zone to protest the use of nuclear weapons and the unknown dangers of radiation on people and the environment. The exhibit features original artifacts, photographs, and manuscripts from the trip.

 


The Ship

The Phoenix of Hiroshima was a 50-foot, 30-ton yacht that circumnavigated the globe and was later involved in several famous protest voyages.

Between its launch in 1954 and its sinking in 2010, the Phoenix carried a family around the world, was used to make protest voyages against nuclear weapons, was declared a Japanese national shrine, and ended up offered free on Craigslist, gutted and stripped of masts, phoenix figurehead and every identifying mark but the words "Phoenix of Hiroshima."
