Horario y ubicación
Acerca del evento
Nonviolence is a way of being and living that orients, in thought, word, and deed, towards integrating love, truth, and courage in individual and collective action aimed at preserving what serves life and at challenging what doesn’t to transform itself so the human family can realign with life. – Miki Kashtan
The Core Nonviolence Commitments Learning and Support Community is an ongoing series of independent units or modules, each one designed to support participants in engaging, in community, with one of the 34 Core Nonviolence Commitments. Each module consists of 3 weekly teleconferences (via Zoom) of 2 hours each.
The series, facilitated by Nonviolent Communication trainers Helen Adamson and Claudia Sánchez, is for anyone who has an active interest in strengthening their commitment to nonviolence and increasing their ability to put it into practice in their day-to-day lives.
Prior experience in NVC is recommended, as it will support you in taking full advantage of the modules. If you–or we–have any questions about whether the series is likely to be a favorable match for you, we would want to dialog about it with you.
Participants who are Nonviolent Communication practitioners will likely find that deepening their engagement with the commitments will help them to connect more fully with the intentions behind the language of NVC and to integrate the consciousness that NVC points to.
We value and are committed to doing what we can to embrace and support diversity in the Learning and Support Community, and to increase its accessibility in any way we can. We welcome folks of all identities and ethnicities to join us, and will do our best to accommodate people of differing abilities. We imagine that we will not always be successful in living up to these aims, and welcome feedback and suggestions.
In order to participate, we ask that you first register for the series, at no cost. You will then receive monthly invitations to RSVP for the next upcoming module.
You are free to attend as few or as many modules as you would like. We are committed to offering the modules on a gift economy basis, and invite you to participate in contributing to this project financially for each module you attend.
