Winter Nonviolence Intensive 2019

*Please note our location change* – the Intensive will take place at our site, the Gandhi Institute (929 S Plymouth Avenue, 14608).


We are excited to announce our four-day Winter Nonviolence Intensive! This Intensive will discuss various forms of applied nonviolence, with time to practice using these techniques for real life situations. These forms of nonviolence are proactive ways to manage conflict and challenging situations.

During the workshop, participants will learn:
• how to shift conflicts by listening for underlying values of opposing parties,
• how to navigate the world with self-reflection upon one’s rank and privilege,
• how to reconnect to energy for social change, in spite of personal and societal challenges and feelings of burn out, and
• how to mediate personal conflicts using Restorative Questions

This Intensive will be interactive with a focus on group-based learning. Each day will begin at 10am and conclude at 5pm.

We are also grateful for our partnership with Rochester AmeriCorps for the fifth year with this event.

This workshop has been priced on a sliding scale from $250-$500; free for students and no one turned away for lack of funds.
