Living a Nonviolent Life: A Workshop with John Dear

Posted by Erin Bechtol
03.22.18

On March 17, Rev. John Dear led a workshop called “Living a Nonviolent Life” in Standish, Maine. Using his book, The Nonviolent Life, John guided the group in reflections on our individual and shared journeys deeper into the life of creative nonviolence. He covered being nonviolent to ourselves; being nonviolent to all others, all creatures, and Mother Earth; and a session about vocation to help build up the global grassroots movement of nonviolence, to work for a new world without racism, poverty, war, nuclear weapons and environmental destruction, a new world of nonviolence.
