30 Days of Nonviolence

Discover the peacebuilding power that lives within you: Make nonviolence a meaningful part of your daily life.

Unleash Your True Power

Nonviolence is the core of who we are. Think about it: If violence was our nature, it wouldn’t be so traumatic when it happens. Have you been following current events in the media and wondering what you, as one person, can do to bring more peace into the world? This program will broaden your sense of possibility while encouraging you to act from a place of wisdom.

Nonviolence is a practice, a skill that we must intentionally cultivate in our daily lives. It’s like a muscle: the more we engage it, the stronger it becomes. And the more we can develop our nonviolent strengths, the more effective we can be with building peace in our homes, our workplaces, and our communities.

You are incredibly powerful. This program will show you exactly how, by helping you establish a daily practice of nonviolence.

A Highly Practical Program

Each day, you will take a few minutes to learn about a nonviolence principle. Then, you will apply that knowledge experientially, with a practice to guide you throughout the day.

We recommend starting your morning by learning about that day’s principle, maybe before doing anything else—it will set you on a path for the rest of your day.
