Living Nonviolence: Applying the Principles of Nonviolence to our Daily Lives
What does it look like to live a life defined by love for all? A love that has the strength to stand for what is right and good, yet has the compassion to see the dignity of those we’re in conflict with? Wherever our conflicts, our ability to spread peace depends upon our capacity to choose a brave love even when our instincts are to attack or run.
The path of principled nonviolence is the path of choosing this brave love in our interpersonal relationships, our professional lives, and as we work for change in our communities.
Drawing on the six principles of Kingian Nonviolence, we will:
- Introduce a nonviolent view of conflict and violence
- Discuss the Six Principles of Kingian Nonviolence, the underlying moral values and beliefs that help us practice brave love in the midst of conflict
- Explore how nonviolence connects with our own spiritual and cultural beliefs
