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.
