Hi Lester, thank you for your message, its a pleasure to meet a fellow collegue and to answer your question !
Beside being a didactic psychotherapist i am also a strongly motivated trainer on non violence pedagogy. I founded and managed the portuguese delegation of Unipaz-International University for Peace. I am a trainer of the Art of Living in Peace's seminar based on a methodology created at Unipaz and approved by Unesco. On this site you can see a manual http://upo.unesco.org/details.aspx?Code_Livre=3889# that gives the overall methodology although the actually expereciantial exercices are not included.
Further more, i'm also a trainer on the Art of Living Life, another cicle of seminars created at Unipaz that include the Art of Living in Peace (an introduction to non violence) but goes beyond: Art fo Living Consciously, Art of Living in Plenitude, Art of Living in Harmony, Art of Living the Conflit, Art of Living Nature and Art of Living the Passage (diying and death).
I'm also teaching on Emotional and Intuitive Education/Transpersonal Pedagogy as invited lecture at the Superior Institute of Apllied Psychology in Lisbon

"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our indian culture and traditional.
we created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for a genuine reason or a false reasons for any reason.but this the time to realize that we are one and we naturally interconnected with each other ,which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of breaths the source is same ,without any discrimination,religion, boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable ,respectable .we should follow the nature's rule ,non violence .peace ,god has given us a human life not for destruction but for look after the wellbeing of all living life.
