New “Engaging Nonviolence” Workshops

two New series starting in April.
Info meeting Sat. March 7.

In January, Nonviolent Wilmington launched a new study-action groups to actively engage in the creative power and practice of nonviolence. These short series of weekly two-hour workshops are based on the new workbook Engaging Nonviolence. There are currently two Wilmington groups studying Part One of the book: “Engaging Nonviolence.” 

We invite you to learn more about our peacemaking movement on Saturday, March 7, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, at Hanover Presbyterian Church, 1801 N. Jefferson Street, Wilmington 19802.

We’ll discuss ways that we can work together to create a nonviolent city through the active application of principles of nonviolence from Thoreau, Gandhi, King and others. And we will invite you to join a workshop series.

Participating in an Engaging Nonviolence workshop series will offer you the opportunity to:

  • learn how to respond to violence
  • find ways to live a more just and peaceful life
  • deepen your relationship with yourself and others
  • experience the power of nonviolent social change

New workshops will begin in April.

New participants should begin with Part 1.
Those who have completed Part 1 are encouraged to continue with Part 2.
Part 1 is “Exploring Nonviolent Power” (6 sessions).
Part 2 is “Nonviolence in Practice” (5 sessions).
You may sign up at the March 7 meeting (recommended) or by email at nonviolentwilmington@gmail.com.

Please put our March 7 meeting on your calendar. It’s time for peace-loving folks to join together and begin a campaign for a new society—and a new culture of peace—in our city and state.

PS: New workshop participants will need a copy of “Engaging Nonviolence: Activating Nonviolent Change in Our Lives and Our World.” This workbook contains all three parts of the study-action. Copies will be available for $20 at the March 7 meeting, or you may reserve a book by registering for Part 1. Reduced price or free copies are available for those who cannot pay $20. No questions asked.
