The Warrior of Compassion and the Art of Peaceful Speech
“World peace through nonviolent means is neither absurd nor unattainable. All other methods have failed. Thus we must begin anew. Nonviolence is a good starting point. Those of us who believe in this method can be voices of reason, sanity, and understanding amid the voices of violence, hatred, and emotion. We can very well set a mood of peace out of which a system of peace can be built. ” –Martin Luther King, Jr., December 1964
In this retreat we will explore and cultivate the imponderable quality of Compassion and work to develop the inherent capacity of peaceful speech; speech that deflates and undermines polarization and aggression. Through meditation, Council, dyad and, improvisation we will bring awareness to obstacles that may, inhibit our capacities for unhindered compassion, or diminish the courage to use our voices in the cause for peace. From that awareness we will begin to enhance our skills as compassionate warriors and artful peace-speakers.
The retreat is free and everyone is welcome!
