Description

Two-day workshop with Kazu Haga and Assistant East Point trainers

Open to All

Saturday, October 21st 9 am – 5 pm

Sunday, October 22nd 9 am – 5 pm

This two-day training will provide participants with a comprehensive introduction to the philosophy and strategy of Kingian Nonviolence. This training is useful for anyone who deals with conflict: inter-personal or larger social conflicts, whether in your personal life, in the workplace, or in your work for social change.

During this training, we will go over the types and levels of conflict, readings and analysis of Dr. King’s thinking, the six principles of nonviolence and the six steps of nonviolence. The training will include lectures, role-plays, video presentations, and other interactive activities. More information available at www.eastpointpeace.org

Kazu Haga is the founder and coordinator of the East Point Peace Academy and is a trainer in Kingian Nonviolence. He teaches in prisons and jails, high schools and youth groups, and with activist communities around the country. He has been active in social change movements since 1998, is the founding board chair of Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (CURYJ), sits on the Board of the OneLife Institute and PeaceWorkers, and is a member of the Metta Center for Nonviolence’s Strategic Advisory Council. He is also a proud member of the EBMC Sangha .www.eastpointpeace.org.

The East Bay Meditation Center operates using a generosity-based, gift economics model. This means we charge no set registration fees to attend our events and instead rely on the generous giving of our community. All classes at the Center do come with a financial cost. Class participants are offered an opportunity to make a voluntary gift to EBMC during the registration process or at an event itself.

Please note that no one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you would like to explore any EBMC volunteer positions, please send an email expressing your interest to admin@eastbaymeditation.org

EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER and and you can offer a voluntary financial gift to them at the class.

In order to protect the health of community members with environmental illness, please do not wear fragranced products (including natural fragrances) or clothes laundered in fragranced products to EBMC.
