Living Nonviolence Web Class

Posted by Ryan Hall

JOIN THE CLASS WITH JOHN DEAR BEGINNING APRIL 4!

John Dear will be offering a six week class on nonviolence, called “Living Nonviolence,” based on his best-selling book, “The Nonviolent Life,” starting on Monday, April 4, 2016. The class will feature six, ten minute videos of John reflecting on various aspects of nonviolence. A new ten minute video will be available to registrants every Monday starting on April 4th. Participants will then have a chance in the day or two after watching the video to post questions or comments on the class Google Groups web discussion board, which John may respond to, and then participants will be invited to write a short reflection piece or journal entry by the end of that week on the questions or topics raised. John will read all entries, and try to respond to the reflection pieces, depending on class size.

Keep in mind, this is not a live video class, you’ll be able to watch the videos on your own time each week as well as post your comments to the class discussion board when it’s convenient to you during the week.
