Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence

Monday, February 11, 2019 - 5:00pm
HSS 306 unless otherwise noted

Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr

Join us for 64 days of practice — applying principles of love and wisdom to daily life.

The Season for Nonviolence, Jan. 30-April 4, is an educational and grassroots campaign dedicated to the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi believed in the power of truth and possibility — that a person of conscience could awaken others by refusing to go along with existing injustice and by pointing out more just and workable alternatives. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. applied Gandhian principles to lead a successful movement for civil rights in the U.S. Framed by the memorial anniversaries of these two great leaders, this annual cross-cultural event creates a focused time to explore how shared values and common goodness can support all people moving toward a more just and sustainable future.

Hosted by the Holistic Health Learning Center (HSS 329), part of the Institute for Holistic Health Studies. For further information, see Season for Nonviolence and Daily Practices.
