WHAT

The shared heart of the Buddha’s teachings and the nonviolence practices of Gandhi and Dr. King is the profound intention to bring love, wisdom and skillful action to every moment and all parts of our lives.

This Labor Day weekend of practice and training brings together these two approaches to provide us with resources that are vital as we prepare for the challenges — personal as well as political, social, economic and ecological — of our current time.

Buddhist practices offer us ways of transforming greed, hatred and delusion into wisdom, equanimity, kindness and a life of integrity, while Gandhian and Kingian nonviolence methods, grounded in love and the wisdom of interconnection, give us the means to work with conflicts and injustice in communities and the larger social world.
