The Principles of Nonviolence and Conflict Reconciliation Training

9:00 AM  - 4:00 PM
Saturday Apr 1, 2017
Hall of Fame Room, Leonard Center athletic & wellness complex

Building on the principles of nonviolence practiced by Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mahatma Gandhi, this interactive training workshop will provide an introduction to the history of nonviolence methods; facilitate dialogue about how violence, conflict, and oppression affect our daily lives; and provide participants with tangible tools to more readily resolve conflicts as they arise. 

This training is free and requires an RSVP to attend.  Please complete this Google form to register by March 29.  Lunch will be provided.

The nonviolence method to conflict management can be powerfully applied to any setting, any issue, and any relationship. This training will inspire and educate participants to think and act differently and to break free from their own prejudice, bias, conditioning and judgment in order to respond to conflict with reconciliation, forgiveness, understanding, and acceptance.

This training workshop will be facilitated by the skilled conflict reconciliation trainers from "New Way: Teaching Conflict Reconciliation," a division of the arts and activism nonprofit, Something New.
