Nonviolence & the New Humanity: A Training Course in 5 Animations
Explore how nonviolence is key to building a society that works for everyone.
Join us in creating a world that is fair and compassionate.
Perhaps you’re seeking ways to manage tough conversations—and build bridges—with those who may disagree with you. Maybe you’ve been wondering what role nonviolence can play in shaping our shared human story, not to mention our social institutions. If so, we’ve created this simple and engaging training especially for you.
Nonviolence & the New Story of Humanity is for thoughtful individuals and groups who want to think deeply about core assumptions that keep us locked in an old story of violence, social injustices, and greed. This online training is highly practical for educators, workshop facilitators, youth group leaders, and anyone eager to bring a constructive, birds-eye approach to their leadership, activism, and/or community organizing.
The Metta Center for Nonviolence provides educational resources on the safe and effective use of nonviolence, with the recognition that it’s not about putting the right person in power but awakening the right kind of power in people. We advance a higher image of humankind while empowering people to explore the question: How does nonviolence work, and how can I actively contribute to a happier, more peaceful society? The Metta Center holds special consultative status at the UN (Economic and Social Council).
