Opening the 2014 Season of Nonviolence

Jan 30, 2014


  It’s still midwinter, but the annual Season for Nonviolence is underway again. This 64-day period, observed all over the world, explains, teaches and promotes non-violent principles as tools for personal growth as well as international conflict resolution. Local observations begin tomorrow evening, as Bruce Robinson reports.

Stephanie Van Hook, director of the Metta Center for Nonviolence in Petaluma, says learning and practicing nonviolence is a personal practice that can potentially have global effects—if enough people join in.

Van Hook’s Nonviolence Workshop begins at 5:30 this evening at the Glaser Center in Santa Rosa, with the Celebration following at 6:30. Both events are open to the public free of charge.
