Christa Tinari, founder of Peace Praxis and co-author of Create a Culture of Kindness in Middle School, joins Nonviolence Radio to talk about the real meaning of kindness and some practical tools that can help us to show kindness with justice in more areas of our lives. Then, Marilyn King, two-time Olympian who has turned her vision to peacebuilding, gives us a primer on how Olympian thinking can help propel values of peace and nonviolence toward the Gold! Finally, Michael dips into the Nonviolence News, and reflects on the epidemic of school shootings from a nonviolence angle. This is a very practical episode for our times!
Nonviolence can sometimes be a source of worry–what if it doesn’t work? as well as contention–It’s fine for some things but it just wouldn’t work in THIS situation. In this three hour session, we will take a deep look at nonviolence and allow ourselves to explore with curiosity and open-heartedness the nature of the limitations we place on this power taking effect in our lives and society. Where do we need healing? Where do we need greater understanding? What can we learn from the successes and “failures” of nonviolence? And what can we learn from one another? Participants will leave with practical insights, tools, and resources for their daily journey of self-discovery.
