Monthly Peacebuilding Skills Day Monthly Global Silent Walking for Peace Third Sunday of Each Month Please organize a walk wherever you are! These walks started in Jerusalem and other places around the world on May 12, Mothers Day, 2002 We walk for ourselves. We walk for everyone… Kiss the Earth with your feet. Print on Earth your love and happiness. Earth will be safe When we feel in us enough safety. "Walking Meditation" by Thich Nhat Hanh **************************************************************** Schedule for Peacebuilding Skills Day Location for all events except the walk: 850 Talbot Ave near Solano (Albany)-behind Parallax Press 10AM--Noon--From Violence to Wholeness: Transformative Nonviolence This introduction to active nonviolence offers exercises and discussion from Pace e Bene's ten-part program in the spirituality and practice of transformative nonviolence. We will draw on our own experiences and insights as well as the teachings, vision and actions of the Buddha, Cesar Chavez, Dorothy Day, Gandhi, Jesus, Martin Luther King, Jr., and others. Through this inquiry into violence and nonviolence, we deepen our willingness and capacity for powerful, effective, creative nonviolent action, using "person power" and "people power" for the benefit of all, in these challenging times. 1PM-3PM--Nonviolent Communication Please join us for an introduction to the practice of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Using NVC helps create the kind of connection that allows the needs of all parties to be met peacefully through compassionate giving. Key NVC concepts include empathy and expression; distinguishing between observation and evaluation; seeing the connection between feelings and needs; making requests without demand energy; and expressing gratitude and appreciation. 4PM--6PM-Walking for Peace in Silence (see above) Meet at ML King and Hearst, Ohlone Park, Berkeley, across from the North Berkeley Senior Center 7:30PM - 8:45PM (ending time flexible!)--Songs and Poetry for Peacemaking .Singing and sharing poetry together deepens our connection, commitment, creativity, joy, and solidarity. Please bring your open heart, and a poem or song to share that has inspired you in peacemaking or helps you cultivate peace or practice your peacemaking skills. No one turned away for lack of a poem or song! Events are free of charge, donations welcome. No prior registration needed. Come to part or all of the day. Bring a lunch and drink if you would like to attend morning and early afternoon sessions.
