Nonviolent Action as Conscious Engagement: Science and Satyagraha for Contemporary Society

May 5, 2013

Time: 10-12 pm 

Where: Lydia’s Organics Sunflower Center, Petaluma 

Contemporary scientific research increasingly points to the interconnected nature of the universe, and highlights the power of conscious thought and action to interact with this universe. The wisdom traditions have honored the sacred unity of life for millennia, exemplified by their emphasis on love, compassion, and faith, and applied for societal change through nonviolent action. In this interactive workshop, we will explore the power of nonviolence in an integral world and how it can be described in the context of a new scientific paradigm characterized by empowered co-creation through presentation and praxis, movement and meditation, storytelling and song, prayer and poetry.

Facilitator: Kari Risher, Metta Center Science Research Fellow
