The Philosophy

Kingian Nonviolence is a philosophy of nonviolent conflict reconciliation in the tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and the organizing strategies of the Civil Rights Movement.  It is a holistic view of conflict that includes the study and analysis of conflict (how to understand conflict), the principles of nonviolence (how to transform conflict), and the steps of nonviolence (how to engage with conflict).

This training has been so successful in so many different settings because of it’s broad approach.  Conflict is universal, and whether you are dealing with conflict on a global level (between the rich and the poor), community level (street violence), social level (coworkers), inter-personal level (family), or personal level (internal), this philosophy applies.  We believe that conflict on any level plays by the same rules.
