Twelve Days Toward Peace
Join us from September 21, International Day of Peace, to October 2, International Day of Nonviolence
Compassion, that desire to take action to end the suffering of another, is rooted in non-harm/nonviolence. When we want happiness for another, based on understanding our own desire to avoid suffering, we put aside all thoughts of harm. We individuals, banded together, provide the ingredients for growing a compassionate city by meeting the issues around violence in whatever way we have the gifts or will to use.
You are invited to set aside twelve days this fall to explore, study, understand and practice the value of non-harm/nonviolence. Learn from the wisdom of great peacemakers, take time to consider personal alternatives to violence and strategies for resolving conflict, set aside silent or meditative time to visualize a world in harmony, and join community members city-wide in this intentional practice that provides a strong foundation for engaged compassion.
