Create constructive conversations about hard issues in personal relationships
Workshop on Interpersonal Nonviolence
Saturday, January 6, 2018 from 9:00 – 4:00
at 6454 Alamo Ave, St. Louis MO, 63105,
- In memory of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s life and ministry
- In the tradition of Satyagraha or Soul Force as taught by Mohandas Gandhi, the Mahatma
- Just short of one year after the inauguration of our 45th President
- In an increasingly polarized political climate
We gather to explore the nature of nonviolence, not as an alternative political strategy, but as a spiritual discipline for creating what the world needs while creating what we need.
Each participant is encouraged to come with a conflicted relationship in mind. We will use lecture and large group conversation together with journaling and small group support to apply the principles of nonviolence to what seems to be an intractable conflict.
The leader is Rev. Dr. Mark Lee Robinson, the Director of the Center for Creative Conflict Resolution and the author of Just Conflict: Transformation through Resolution.
The fee for the workshop is $100. Lunch and snacks will be provided. The workshop is limited to eight persons.
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi
